The Blue Ridge Blankets Project

Connecting fiber farmers, processors, dyers and weavers together, to produce locally sourced and crafted blankets in Western North Carolina. 

We have a rich history of textile excellence in the Blue Ridge Fibershed, and it's time to revitalize our fiber economy.  The Blue Ridge Blankets project provides a local market for our region's fiber farmers, provides fair compensation to our weavers and dyers, and gives local consumers an opportunity to purchase a beautiful locally sourced product.  

Our project began in 2021, with funding provided by a Natural and Cultural Resources grant from The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina.  We expect our first official run of blankets to be available for purchase as of December 2022.  Stay tuned here for more news as the project unfolds!
