The warmth of a well-considered gift is universally appreciated. Best Made gear
and home goods are qualified by the consideration that goes into their design and quality of materials,
and will never fail to inspire wonder in the eye of the beholder.
If the greatest naturalists and expedition leaders had not kept meticulous
logs of their adventures, their stories would have never been told.

Our Wool Boro Blanket is inspired by the unmistakable Japanese tradition of patchwork
clothmaking, and was expertly woven at Faribault Woolen Mills. Exceedingly soft
and warm, this blanket is large enough to keep the whole family cozy for the winter.
