Inspired by blankets found in Berea’s Appalachian Center Artifact Collection, these hemp and wool throws will last for generations and only grow softer with age. Available in full stripes, or smaller sections of cool or warm colors.
The Stripe Rise throw is woven using twelve different colors of soft wool. Every morning we rise to make this new day better than the last, honoring our past not just as a foundation for our future, but as a guide to how we may do better for the earth and its people. Inspired by blankets found in Berea’s Loyal Jones Appalachian Center Artifact Collection, these hemp and wool throws will last for generations and only grow softer with age. Hemp is one of the most sustainable fibers available and adds strength and durability to this beautiful throw. The wool we use is produced and processed in the United States and provides a cozy layer of warmth. The unique arrangement of each design allows students to make decisions on the color and placement of stripes, meaning each throw is one of a kind. Creativity and critical thinking are crucial skills to develop as a maker, and these blankets encourage our students to hone those skills while honoring the material.
70% wool / 30% hemp, machine wash on delicate with COLD water, do not tumble dry, hang or lay flat to dry, iron with medium heat and no steam.
