Four contrasting colour blocks form the decorative overall pattern of the Colour Block Blankets by Hella Jongerius. This snug blanket is made of Peruvian highland wool from a hybrid breed of sheep: a cross between a Merino, whose wool is extremely soft, and a Corriedale, which is known for its sturdy fibres.
Thanks to the carefully coordinated selection of materials and colours available in the Vitra Colour & Material Library, products by Vitra can be effortlessly combined to create diverse, individual collages.
