These traditional Nordic-patterned blankets are 100% wool—with material shorn mostly from domestic sheep, but partly Australian Merino due to their long, soft fibers—and woven 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 workers from the original Amana village, which was declared a National Historic Monument by the United States government in 1965.

Production & Design

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 perennial, loyal or 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.
