I have had an unhealthy obsession with the A Détacher black bedspread since I first saw it (I keep imagining how the blanket would look layered over my white duvet cover).

Then yesterday Julie spotted a similar blanket from Enhabiten on Etsy; Enhabiten's blanket is a vintage crochet bedspread dyed in slate grey—almost as black as the A Détacher piece. I am reaching for my credit card (this one is almost $1,000 less than the painstakingly crocheted A Détacher blanket).

Above: The Vespertine Hand-Dyed Vintage Bedspread is a vintage textile dyed with naturally derived slate dye; $160 from Enhabiten.

Above: The blanket measures 75 by 100 inches.

Above: A Détacher's Hand Crochet Bedspread is made of dark black cotton yarn and fits a queen-sized bed; $1,150 from La Garçonne.
