MacAusland Woolen Mills Blankets

virgin wool blankets from nova scotia

I always get myself something special for christmas/birthday. I’m one of those unlucky people who have a birthday in December. I’ve gotten a little crazy with the vintage plaid throws this fall; I bought three. I really want a simple blanket for my new bed. MacAusland Woolen Mill out of Prince Edward Island weaves beautiful virgin wool blankets in stripes. They’re available in throws and standard bed sized bed blankets. I can’t decide which color to choose. Maybe the light gray or the taupe tweed? Prices begin at $39 for a lap blanket. Online ordering is not available but the website does offer a great gallery of photos to help you navigate the choices. I’ll be calling and ordering my blanket this afternoon.

  1. OMG! I have to tell you I am thrilled to see you post about these blankets! I do hope you ordered yourself one. I live in Wisconsin and am lucky enough to be a part of a CSA that shears sheep. They then send their wool to Prince Edward Island to be spun, dyed, and woven @ MacAusland Woolen Mill. I totally splurged and got a queen size in blue heather (I also had a really hard time deciding color!) They guarantee their work for life and it truly is the most amazing blanket I’ve ever owned. I just had to share my blanket story with you! Seeing this post made my day!! Enjoy:)

  2. 43 years ago I received a MacAusland wool blanket from my Prince Edward Island grandmother as a wedding present. I still have the beautiful blanket and still use it!!! Take good care of it and it will last you a lifetime.

  3. I bought one of these from a great wool shop in Nova Scotia in October. It is amazing (I have the Queen size gray with the white stripe) and HUGE. I bought the lap size one for my sister for Christmas ($50)… it’s a bit small for sleeping but for sitting it’s great!

  4. Brilliant, and what a coincidence!

    I ordered one in light gray too – earlier in the month. It arrived at my parents’ place in Windsor (Ontario) yesterday … can’t wait to get home for the holidays and see what it’s like.

    MacAuslands were so lovely to deal with on the phone, too.

  7. Oh, I just love a good wool blanket! There’s nothing cozier in the winter. I really love the stripes on these – be sure to show us what you end up getting. And BTW, than you so much for bringing Plain English to my attention. That is some serious kitchen inspiration – just what I need!

  8. Jill, Your amazing at the knit/purl seed stitch on your scarves! What happen with the hat? The top part was really hard for me. I needed some coaching from my local yarn shop.

  10. I love these wool blankets! I received an orange one as a wedding gift from my family that live in Prince Edward Island. (P.E.I. is often overlooked compared to Nova Scotia, such a shame.)
