Manta can be either a foot-warmer or a stole and is handwoven in pure Sardinian wool. Though it is in plain weave, the twist in the yarn gives it a distinctive twill look. Ground and borders come in white and naturally colored Sardinian wool, or in the lively colors of the traditional Sardinian rugs. It measures 80x230cm. It can be purchased from Nule designer and weaver Eugenia Pinna. E-mail:
