Franny Kansteiner's blanket

Kudos to Franny Kansteiner- founder and designing shepherd of Gum Gree Farm Designs. Fibers from her flock of sheep will be sheered on the spot at Oak Spring Farm in Upperville during the Garden Tour on Saturday, April 24.

Using inspiration from the iconic racing silks of Paul Mellon of gray and yellow she has created a blanket in collaboration with the Oak Spring Foundation. The foundation, is the horticulatural center created by the late Bunny Mellon.
