This guidance gives the children a better understanding of their responsibility to the universe, the Creator and that all things are interrelated and an equal part of the whole. The design represents all colors of humankind, the color of Mother Earth, the sun and other circular celestial bodies and all four directions of life. This blanket features napped and felt bound pure virgin wool/cotton. Approx. 64 x 80". Dry clean. Made in the USA.
