Description

PLEASE NOTE: We are beginning MidWeight Lynx Pattern Blankets now, and plan to make Blankets in all in 3d quarter of 2022. Please indicate your interest in a Blanket by placing a backorder on this page. No obligation and no payment information necessary at this time.

If you want a MidWeight Lynx Blanket, please contact us because we may be able to make it now, depending on the design.

It's a BIG help to us to know in advance what people want, so please don't hesitate to order a Blanket. Here is more information about ordering out-of-stock garments, about our production status, and about online ordering in general. --- Thanks -- Ralph

The Blanket story, for us ... We did not plan to make Blankets but people wearing WeatherWool asked for them, and they were very well received.

Andy McMurry, one of our Advisors and Ranchers, mentioned to us some research that wool's thermoregulatory properties help infants and adults sleep better. We did find a link to a flyer published by Woolmark, a division of Australian Wool Innovation. Studies also indicate that wool helps babies sleep better, offering protection from cold, heat and moisture. There is also some very interesting info available from the people at Wool Sleeping Bag ... and THANKS to them!! The link will bring you to a page on their website entitled Wool Sleeping Bag Advantage. We'd be very interested to know about any other studies regarding wool bedding or sleepwear.

Blankets can be made from any of our Fabrics, including, eventually, undyed Fabric. Like everything made with our Fabrics, these blankets are not scratchy and almost everyone  will find them comfortable against bare skin. 

We expect Blankets will soon be a regular production offering. We don't know what the prices will actually be, so please consider these prices just a general guideline:

  • Crib Blanket: 36 inches (117 cm) wide by 40 inches (152 cm) long. $135
  • Adult Stadium Blanket: 50 inches (127 cm) by 70 inches (178 cm). $215
  • Twin Bed Blanket: 66 inches (168 cm) by 90 inches (229 cm). $700
  • Double Bed Blanket: 80 inches (203 cm) by 90 inches (229 cm). $900
  • Queen Bed Blanket: 90 inches (229 cm) by anywhere from 90 inches (229 cm) to 100 inches (254 cm). These are the blankets in the photos. $1000
  • King Bed Blanket: 108 inches (274 cm) by anywhere from  90 inches (229 cm)  to 100 inches (254 inches). $1200
  • Custom Blanket

Our new bolts of Fabric are about 51 inches (130 cm) wide, excluding selvedge ... and so blankets wider than that need to incorporate some kind of design that enables panels of fabric to be joined together, as shown in the photos of the Queen Blankets. So another choice that will need to be made is whether the main panels will be a different fabric/color than the borders, as shown here.

Just to give an idea ... the only Blankets we've made so far were FullWeight Fabric in Queen Size (in the photos). They weighed about 10 pounds (4.5 kg) and cost $1000 each. Blankets that are narrow enough to be made from a single panel of our Fabric (Swaddle, Crib and Stadium Blankets) will incur lower tailoring costs.

Lastly ... these pictures are very rough. We never intended these pictures to be on the website ... but they'll have to do for now.

We will get Blankets going, and if you are interested, please let us know! -- Thanks -- Ralph

The REVIEW feature below, which enables anyone to publish a review, was added in March of 2022.  We will hopefully get some Reviews when we start making Blankets in earnest.
