NJ Fibershed Blanket Project – Pre-Order Blankets Now

 


The NJ Fibershed Blanket Project is a cooperative project between small farms raising fiber animals for their fleeces. This is one of their major initiatives to bring NJ fiber farmers together, and to highlight locally produced fiber products.Using wool collected from farms located within the NJ Fibershed region, the program provides a way for small-scale fiber producers to sell their fiber.  Their wool was processed and made into items that can be marketed to customers seeking local products and who want to support small-scale, sustainable farms
Over 400 lbs of wol was collected and sorted to meet criteria for quality to ensure a final product that is beautiful, warm, and enjoyable to own.

 

The wool was washed in New Hampshire, spun in Maine, and handwoven by ComfortCloth Weaving in upstate New York.

Featuring a unique and modern design with three solid color sections representing the three regions of New Jersey: North, Central, and South Jersey. The gradual transition between color blocks is a playful nod to the fundamental New Jersey debate of where, exactly Central Jersey starts and ends. The nine lines in the transition represent the nine farms who contributed wool to the project.  Two versions will be available – one with a white background and one with a grey background.

The NJ Fibershed Blanket measures 78″ x 58″ (2m x 1.47 m) and weighs 2.5 lb (1.13 kg). The blanket price is $325, and can be pre-ordered now with a $50 deposit. The blankets will be available for delivery beginning in early July.  You’ll be notified by email when your blanket is ready for pickup.
