Penobscot Blankets


Product Description

Penobscot Blankets were inspired by the rippling water of the Penobscot Bay, just across the road from our Maine studios. This cozy collection of washable wool blankets features a modern, graduated stripe pattern with rich, hand-dyed hues. These beautiful blankets are woven exclusively for us at a small Maine mill. Made with classic Swans Island design and our uniquely machine-washable, organic Merino wool, these textiles are the perfect addition to your beautiful and all-natural bed.

We use our own extra-soft organic EcoWash® Merino wool and organic American cotton to weave these blankets. 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 Penobscot pattern is also available in a throw size.
