Object Description
a tan and red striped blanket with a flower-patterned edging, in two pieces. has been mended and re-sewn over time.
Origin
The blanket is in two pieces. It was donated by Judith Fawell. The blanket was hand made with goat and sheep wool by Nickalous mother from the wool she spun from her family's herd of goat and sheep. Nick brought the blanket with him over to the U.S. in 1897. He escaped from the Greek Isles via Italy and France to avoid being captured by the Turks. Nick was only 14 years old at the time, and it was very common for the Turks to raid and conscript greek boys into the Turkish Army.
