From the Dakotas to New England with ice as far south as Atlanta, we’ve just experienced another severe polar vortex visit to the Mid-West.
We shivered for 3 days and nights which made us realize we need to invest in a quality Throw that we can cuddle up with while reading or watching TV.
And on the first minus 25 degree night we simply could not find enough blankets to sleep warm. Everything was cold: the walls and floor just reeked cold which was another wake up call. It’s also time to invest in a real blanket because a good sleep means everything on a very cold Winter night!
We have added to our website quality Throws and Blankets manufactured by a textile mill in Maine, USA!

Alpaca: A soft, strong, durable, lustrous silky fiber warmer than wool. The fiber has no lanolin so alpaca is hypoallergenic.
Shown above is Sugarloaf Alpaca.
Cashmere: A fine, soft wool that is three times more insulating than wool. Cashmere improves with age and is one of the longest lasting fibers available.
Shown above is Chevron Cashmere.
Wool: Wool has a greater bulk than other fibers and thus holds air which in turn retains heat.
Shown above is Oakley Plaid Wool.
Cotton: Unlike the above animal grown fibers, cotton grows as a plant and has a cellulose composition. It is spun into yarn that is soft and breathable, the hallmark of cotton fabric.
Shown L to R above: Belfast, Gingham Check, Rockport and Plaids Cotton.
Blends: Add 15% Polyester to Cotton and you a less expensive, durable, wrinkle free low maintenance fabric.
Shown above is Seacoast Blend.
Here’s to helping you to stay warm as you hibernate for the rest of Winter!
