Breakwater Blankets


Product Description

Breakwater Blankets were inspired by the rippling water of incoming and outgoing tides hitting the breakwater.  Our unique design features a graduated stripe pattern that transitions from one color to the next.  The organic Merino wool we use in these throws is extra soft.  Mixed with organic American cotton, they are so cozy – perfect for a comfortable night’s sleep all year long.  Bring home a bit of the New England shore with this modern graphic blanket for your bed.

We use our own extra-soft organic EcoWash® Merino wool and organic American cotton to weave these throws.  This wool has been treated with an organic enzyme that helps to prevent felting, so you can gently wash them at home. These lofty blankets have a rich, variegated tonality that can only be achieved through our hand-­dyeing process.  The Breakwater pattern is also available in a throw size.
