About the Macgee Cloth Company
The company was started with the desire to create a blanket in the tradition of heirloom textiles craft but with transparent sourcing and environmentally sound provenance. Our blanket throws are made from 50% English Lambswool and 50% Ring-spun, organically grown, North American cotton. Our Lambswool is from Gledhill Spinners in Yorkshire, UK, a family-owned wool spinning company in business for nearly 80 years. The wool is 100% new superfine 21.5 micron lambswool.
We use ring-spun cotton from Hill Spinning, a family-owned mill and one of two spinners in North America who ring-spin cotton. Ring-spun cotton uses an older, slower spinning method which produces a stronger and softer yarn than the open-end spinning used in high production textile industries. The cotton we use is grown organically by the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative and certified by the Texas Department of Agriculture.
