Here in Colorado, spring nights are still chilly, with temperatures below 30 degrees; March and April are our snowiest months. These nights still call for warm and cozy blankets. Some of the most beautiful I’ve seen are the heirloom blankets from Fortner Hall Artisan Textiles, handwoven with un-dyed and naturally colored merino wool.
This Kansas City company sources its wool and manufactures its products locally in what Fortner Hall calls “idyllic cottage industries” for maximum sustainability. These are blankets to last a lifetime and hand down to your children and grandchildren. Soft, natural colors include chocolate, silver, twig, ebony, pewter and café au lait.
Because of the artisan nature of these blankets, availability fluctuates, so check with Fortner Hall for this season’s choices.
