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.
