Canadians have become known over the past century for making great blankets. I am not sure there is a reason that can explain this phenomenon. Perhaps it’s all the cold weather or perhaps it’s our love to snuggle or our access to great wools…Either way, we make great blankets loved the world over.
There are several Canadian made blankets that have become iconic over the years – I am sure we are all familiar with the classic Hudson’s Bay Five Point Blanket. And it’s great and wooly and heavy…and perfect for winter. But I propose a new Canadian Classic everyone should own – the Sweatshirt Blanket from Merchant Sons.
Merchant Sons is a newly launched home textiles design company that makes great sheets but one of their standout items is the sweatshirt blanket. It feels like wrapping yourself up in a your favourite cozy sweatshirt. The blanket is made in Canada (Scarborough ON to be exact) with all Canadian materials. Available in the classic sweatshirt grey, charcoal and sand. And at only $100, its a design deal.
