What's The Authentic?
We’ve revolutionized the show blanket industry again!
The Authentic is nearly half the thickness of our regular Cuttinups. The way we achieve that is a higher quality wool with a tighter weave. Flat blankets are made on automatic looms that can create a very tight weave with a lesser quality wool. Contour blankets must be made on hand looms to build the contour shape. This makes it very difficult to get the same tight weave as you see below. The tightness can effect several factors from appearance to endurance. We’ve been testing wools and making adjustments for almost 3 years now, trying to achieve this product. It’s been a task, but we’ve finally done it!
The Authentic was a dream of our founder...
The company that brought you the first contour show blanket has now brought you the absolute finest show blankets EVER made.
The Authentics are a spin off of our contour show blankets. The process of building a contour shape into the wither and SI areas creates a looser thicker weave. Although we use the same quality and types of wools as the best quality flat show blankets our blankets result in a looser weave. This creates a softer feel, but it remains to be seen the actual endurance of a show blanket with a slightly looser weave. Although we’ve had no issues with endurance, our founder longed to replicate elegance and beauty of the small historic rugs used as show blankets back in the day, that stemmed her love and fascination with beautiful show blankets.
Since our launch in 2019, she’s worked countless hours with weavers, questioning techniques and testing finer wools, to help create her dream. A show blanket that had all the look, feel and durability of a historical blanket or rug that also had our contour shape, we’re so well known for. It’s been a task, but in the fall of 2022, the dream became a reality! The Authentic was born.
