This is a wonderful two sided, very thick wool blanket or throw, 58" by 77"(includes the fringe)with Scottish tartan plaid patterns. One side is dominantly red and somewhat resembles the Royal Stewart tartan, while the other has blue, brown, red and green, with fine white lines(not quite the Black Watch tartan). The wool is very dense, with the fringe more like thick noodles. A very high quality blanket. I am not sure of the age as there is no label. But it is in very good condition. I see no damage, stains or smell odors.
