In the realm of Canadiana home décor, there is one particular striped blanket that gets all the glory. This is not that blanket. This is MacAusland’s Woollen Mills blanket, the underdog of the Great White North. Made from virgin wool in Bloomfield, Prince Edward Island, each unique parallelogram is crafted using traditional milling equipment. Blankets are cleaned, combed, spun, and warped over a loom, preshrunk, washed again, dyed, and finally, brushed (to create the cozy fluff required for our winters), cut, hemmed, and folded. Whatever the size—from Lap Robe to Queen—colour, or pattern, the production process exudes artisanal commitment. MacAusland’s Woolen Mills blankets are available at Three Bags Full.
