Cuttinup Show Blankets are the only show blanket on the market with a contour shape built into the pattern. This wasn’t an easy feat. These blankets have to be made on handlooms by expert weavers, to build the contour shape. This creates a slightly looser weave which also gives you a softer feel for the blanket itself. Flat blankets are made with automatic looms, which creat a tighter weave and stiffer feel, it also alows for mass production more extensive detail and faster less expensive product. Cuttinup has created a more more unique hand woven product, that fits better. Given all that we still brought it to you at reasonable price often times much less than the “finest” flat blankets on the market.
