For the Love of :: Hudson’s Bay Blanket

I am in love with Hudson’s Bay blankets! These blankets have been around since the fur trade was big business in North America. The blankets are still made in England just like they were 200+ years ago, and they are iconic in Canada and northern U.S. states.

In the U.S., you can buy the blankets through Woolrich. Like any timeless, quality piece, they are not cheap. Pendleton also makes wool blankets, even a throw with the iconic stripes, for a more affordable price.

And if you love to knit, Purl Bee has a great Hudson’s Bay inspired blanket pattern.

  1. That is a nice blanket. Unfortunately, I can’t knit (only crochet), or else I’d have another project in the works! Like I don’t have enough, right?
