Wooly warmth

I have something of a wool blanket/throw collection going - they're one of my favorite things to buy as souvenirs when in sheepy countries (Ireland, Scotland) and they're terribly nice to have around for cozy tv watching. So far I have a great purple tartan one, a purple/cream check one, and an Avoca red/grey tartan.

Someday, I'd love a good classic Pendleton striped throw. Maybe vintage?


But now, I'm loving the offerings from Faribault Woolen Mill Co. I think it's my current love of buffalo check, probably inspired by being back in the mountains and countryside, where homey plaids and rugged leather and plush fur feel so much more appropriate than in the city.


They also have a great Stewart plaid. I'd love either that or a Black Watch throw.
