Indigo baknough wool/cotton shawl, Libya
 
This unusual indigo-colored baknough is from Libya. It has white cotton dashed lines woven into the sumptuous blue wool field and a series of white cotton stripes. Its texture has a denim-like feel to it, possibly because the wool was spun with a little cotton, and it is lighter in weight than most baknough. It has just a couple of small holes in the field and measures 87" long by 54" wide.  TT128 ~ $3000
