Puriri blankets

The Puriri tree is a native of New Zealand, found mostly in the upper half of the North Island, and grows to about 20 metres tall often with a trunk diameter of 1.5 metres.  The largish flowers occur in loose clusters of up to 12 blossoms and appear mostly over winter.

 On one of the pages of my brief I read the phrase "dilute rich burgundy with blood".  It actually said blond but I read it wrong and got the gist of what I had to dye.

If you fancy owning one of these blankets - tough!  They've found a new home already.  But you can always let the girls at Pauanesia know and we'll see what happens.
