What's more Canadian than a Hudson's Bay blanket?

Inspired by the original and now iconic design, we've put our own twist on this hand knit version of the blanket by bringing the rich, bold striping to the forefront where we think it belongs!

Like much of Canadian history, the story behind this blanket is complicated.  Originally, this blanket's lightweight warmth & insulation made it common barter for goods with Indigenous People of Turtle Island.  Over time, it became an iconic design recognizable worldwide and practically a national symbol here at home.  Many First Nations tribes consider the Hudson's Bay blanket to be a vehicle of colonialism & oppression because European diseases such as small pox were easily spread through contaminated blankets.

Despite being known as "Canadian", Hudson's Bay ironically sources their wool elsewhere and fabricates these blankets in third world countries. 

Rather than toss the design aside due to it's dark history, we believe that by making this blanket and highlighting it's complicated past (and present), we can increase awareness, learn from it, and do better.

The difference with our blankets:

  • Hand knit IN CANADA and supports local makers
  • Made with CANADIAN sourced wool (Lichen & Lace, an indie dyer from New Brunswick)
  • Comes with an info card on the history of the original blanket with links to further information
  • With EACH blanket purchased, a donation of $10 will be made to 

Although we recommend washing by hand, these are made with 100% superwash wool which means you can wash in the machine on delicate in cold water but always lay flat to dry!


All blankets are MADE TO ORDER.  Please allow 6-8 weeks for your blanket to be hand knit with lots of love!
