The two woolen blankets are sewn together to make a very long blanket. One is dark blue with thin yellow and green stripes at either end. The other blanket is red with yellow and dark blue stripes. The long sides are edged with purple satinface ribbon. There is decorative stitching along the center seam and along the ribbon.
