Kind of Blue / Bill Evans Herringbone Lambswool / Organic Cotton Heirloom Blanket
The first in a series of blankets devoted to our favorite artists. The Bill Evans blanket is the ultimate blanket for listening to cool jazz by a roaring fire while staring out at the rain.
Delightfully soft lambswool weft over a dark organic cotton warp in a modest herringbone weave. I think Bill would love his new signature blanket.
Imagine yourself wrapped in the Luxury of Knowing you’ve made a purchase that not only has the value of being a beautifully hand crafted and finished heirloom blanket, but that this object of comfort and beauty is also sourced from ethical, sustainable and organic eco-friendly farming practices. This is truly a Gift to the Future.
Peace of Mind
At Macgee Cloth we understand the value of creating a blanket in the traditional turn of the century weaving style. Our lambswool is spun and dyed at R Gledhill’s 1777 mill in Yorkshire ,our unbleached organic cotton warp threads are ring-spun for a softer, more durable yarn and sourced from the Texas Organic Cotton Farmers Cooperative. We weave our blankets on antique Dobcross Looms and hand finish them right here at our textile mill tucked into the woods in Roberts Creek, BC.
- Artisan crafted on antique Dob cross looms

This blanket is made of ring-spun cotton warp and lambswool weft. Both are plaited three times making them stronger and more dense. These can be hand washed in a gentle soap and cool water and hung to dry. Press using an iron on a cooler, wool setting.
