These wool blankets are a cross between the quilts of Gee’s Bend and those of Denyse Schmidt.

They owe their warmth and their rustic vibrancy to their green construction: they’re hand-pieced from post-consumer wool sweaters, which are cleaned, softened, cut into strips, sewn together and then edged.

Port Townsend, Washington-based Abundant Earth carries several patterns, including some in cotton and cotton denim, but we’re partial to the wool patterns, particularly Circle/Square and the Highlands. And we’re particualry impressed by the palettes, which will soften and brighten modern interiors without notching down their sophistication.

Highlands comes in several juicy palettes.
