How Hillery’s Blan­kets Are Made

Cottages & Bungalows - - Extra -

“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.
