These blankets are made with 100% cotton fibers from a South Carolina farm and loomed in Iowa. The history of these blankets goes back to 1855, when a German community immigrated to the United States. Leading a communal lifestyle and sharing everything, they supported the village through cottage industries including the production of wool. The blankets are made by three employees working in the original Amana village—declared a National Historic Landmark by the United States government in 1965.
Machine wash and tumble dry.
In 1843, a German group by the name of the Community of True Inspiration immigrated to the United States seeking freedom. They initially landed near current day Buffalo, New York, but eventually settled in Iowa in the 1850s. They named themselves and their village Amana, meaning to remain faithful in Hebrew. The group lived a communal lifestyle, receiving no wages and sharing in education, supplies, worship and work, which included cottage enterprises such as making clocks, brewing spirits and the production of wool. The Amanas were forced to give up their communal lifestyle during the Great Depression, but many of the original members still work in its shops.
