MacAusland’s Woollen Mills
Wool Blankets. I don’t feel like I need to say more, but I’m going to anyways. As most of you know I moved across the country recently and I am now writing this while looking at mountains out my window. The thing about moving across country is that you pretty much have to start brand new, which means I didn’t have a blanket. I used this as an excuse to buy something I’ve been dying for, for years.
MacAusland’s Woollen Mill is located smack dab in the middle of PEI and they’re the only mill left in Atlantic Canada. They run their business pretty old school, it just takes one glance at their website to understand what I mean, but they produce quality products at a fantastically low price. $126 for a queen size coloured tweed blanket is unheard of, that also includes shipping straight from factory to your door.
If you’re picky about the blanket it’ll take a few weeks or months to get, cause they don’t always have the stock of what they show on their site, but they pretty much will do anything you want in a blanket if you’re patient. I didn’t want to wait so I literally said, “give me any queen size blanket you’ve got lying around” and sent them my credit card number. This blanket wasn’t my first choice, I love the classic stripe blankets they do, but I’m not picky. This blanket looks great and every morning I can’t bring myself to get out from under it’s coziness. And from the last article I wrote about wool we also know that I’m pretty much invincible under this thing. Wool Blankets. Enough said.
