Gudma



Gudma is a soft fleecy blanket made from wool of the Giangi sheep. These blankets are mostly weaved at Giabong and in Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh.

This blanket requires a special variety of clay for its cleaning and finishing process. The making of this blanket is therefore restricted to only a few regions in the state where this clay is available.

This variety of blanket usually maintains the natural color of the wool except on the borders where a red or black lining is given.
