ITEM#: 18316206Add a little extra warmth to your bedding with this beautiful wool, cotton blanket. The Thunder and Earthquake design references a legend of the Yurok, the original people of Northern California along the Klamath River. In the beginning there was no ocean, just prairie. Then Thunder and Earthquake agreed that the people would live better if they had an ocean. So Earthquake traveled with Kingfisher to faraway Opis to bring back the water in abalone shells. As they went, Earthquake sank the land at the north end of the world behind them. At the south end of the world, Thunder helped by breaking down trees. Soon the water extended all the way from the north to the south end of the world. There were salmon and seals in the water. So it is that the prairie became ocean, because Thunder and Earthquake wished it so. This intricate blanket pattern incorporates repeated triangular and zigzag designs often seen in Yurok basketry. And the ombred effect emulates the mighty shaking of Earthquake.
The Benefits of Wool: Think wool is just for the winter. Not so. . . Wool is a breathable fiber that provides instant warmth; unlike synthetic materials. It regulates itself to individual body temperature and really is warm in winter and cool in summer. It is also a great buffer against rain, wind and snow. The scientific reasons for these miraculous properties are that, in cold temperatures, wool removes (wicks) moisture from the skin while at the same time its insulating qualities trap dry air and warmth. In warm temperatures, wool is breathable qualities draw in air which removes excess heat and moisture from the body, helping the wearer stay cool. To add to that, wool is naturally water-resistant, repelling moisture vapor through its fibers and making it resistant to rot, mold and mildew. Wool is hard to challenge for its sustainability. At the end of its life, wool is bio-degradable in the soil, releasing important nutrients. However, if you invest in a Pendleton wool blanket, you will never throw it away you'll just pass it down thru the generations. Wool is a highly practical fiber. Easy to clean because dirt sits on the surface of the fiber (and so can be wiped off), it needs very little washing or laundry. It dries quickly and is flame-retardant. Naturally anti-allergenic, wool does not collect static which attracts dust and dirt, so those with allergies to house-mites or dust are turning to wool bedding. Many customers who suffer from asthma or eczema buy Pendleton wool blankets.
