Ralph Lauren donated all of these cashmere swatches to William and I. So many would have discarded them at the end of the season. I sewed little pockets out of them and stuffed them with organic cotton from a dear friend. I sewed them closed to make little pillows, and connected all of them to make this blanket. I slept on the floor of my studio for years and this blanket kept me warm and comfortable.
It was never the same after a tragic encounter with a washing machine!
