These lightweight and versitle blankets, throws and scarves feature wonderful natural colors and a soft hand. Their simplicity is elegant. Regardless, as much as they are fabulous the best part is...they operate a Blanket Hospital for seamless repairs! Now, how cool is that?
Here are some of the organic dyes used on the wool: Kamla, madder, brazilwood, cochineal, cutch, logwood, indigo, weld and osage orange.

Some of the wool is local...the Winter Blanket series comes from Nash Island near the Penobscot Bay. These sheep are left untended and as they free graze their fleece is hay free, which means it doesn't need an acid bath and tweezer picking to rid it of impurities....thus the lanolin remains in the wool and you have a better feeling blanket.
