How Hillery’s Blankets Are Made
“I work with a wonderful family-owned knitting mill here in the U.S. They make it part of their mission to source recycled cotton yarns for their throws, which are knit on Japanese industrial knitting machines,” Hillery notes.
Each blanket is made from 80% recycled cotton and 20% poly, making them the perfect weight for year-round use.
Recycled cotton is created from preconsumer fibers and scraps that have been discarded during the cut-and-sew process. These fibers are then broken down and spun into new yarns by a process that requires less energy and conserves natural resources.
Designed with everyday life in mind, the blankets can be machine washed and dried.
