As rich and beautiful as the Berber area it is named for Tamazya is a deeply textured lace blanket worked with a geometric inner pattern and ornate outer border. This stunning cover is created with a strand of worsted weight wool and laceweight mohair held together for visual stitch definition and a slight bloom. The picot border is worked on the WS and the bumps are blocked out for emphasis.
