Product Description

Our Winter Checked Blankets are woven in our Maine studio with locally-sourced wool. These warm handwoven wool blankets feature checks of light and dark hand-dyed color.  Woven in a double layer construction, they will keep you cozy on the coldest winter evenings. True labors of love, our dedicated weavers must hand-tie 3,456 knots on our antique loom just to set up each limited run of these beautiful heirloom blankets. Each Winter Blanket ships in our custom linen storage bag, with slats of protective aromatic cedar. In addition to the checked patterns shown here, these extraordinary blankets are also available in rich solid colors.
