Description

PLEASE NOTE: We don't have any Blankets in stock now. Please indicate your interest in a Blanket by placing an order on this page. No obligation and no payment information necessary at this time.

You are very welcome to order any Blanket -- all prices set to 0 for now --and we'll put you on the list of people to notify when we prepare to make more. I want to make some Blankets in 4th quarter 2021 (about 10 minutes from now!), starting with MidWeight Drab.

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. We'd be very interested to know about any other studies regarding wool bedding or sleepwear.

Going forward we intend to address Blankets seriously, and we are maintaining an "interested list", which is really the purpose of this page, for now.

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

We are not sure when we'll make Blankets, but I'm confident Blankets will be a regular offering by September of 2021. We don't know what the prices will actually be, so please consider these prices just a general guideline:

  • Swaddle Blanket: 46 inches (117 centimeters) by 46 inches (117 cm) long. $350
  • Crib Blanket: 46 inches (117 cm) wide by 60 inches (152 cm) long. $385
  • Child Stadium Blanket: 48 inches (122 cm) by 52 inches (132 cm). $385
  • Adult Stadium Blanket: 50 inches (127 cm) by 70 inches (178 cm). $415
  • 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

We'll be getting a good quantity of our Fabric soon and I want to start making a few Blankets right away. If you'd like to be a Blanket made very soon, please let me know. We'll be contacting people on the backorder list soon to see who would like to work with us getting their Blanket made early in the going.

Our new bolts of Fabric are about 50 inches (127 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 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 in making your Blanket now, please let us know! -- Thanks -- Ralph
