Thanks for the responses Ginna!
Speaking of scratchy — I have a friend who bought a throw blanket in Portugal and brought it all the way back to San Francisco, only to discover it’s scratchy and unpleasant to use for cover and warmth. So, it’s pretty but impractical.
I’ve been mulling some sort of post that’s like: functionality and beauty should hold equal weight, with garments, with objects…i dunno. Still forming.
