favorite with needle felters.  Our white romney roving is available again

The Connecticut Blanket Project is a cooperative project for members of the Connecticut Sheep Breeders Association, Inc..   
These aren't your old scratchy Army or Navy blankets, rather they are soft, warm blankets made each year from wool that is
consigned by Association members. The wool is collected in early June, then delivered to the mill where it is washed, carded,
and spun into yarn that is then woven into blankets.  The blankets are usually finished and delivered by late fall.  The pattern
design on the blanket changes each year and the shade of gray varies depending on the quantity of dark fleeces
consigned.    We order King, Queen & Long Throw sizes as well as scarves as they are the most popular, however we can
obtain other sizes (Full, Twin, Throw & Baby) from producers that ordered them.  The long throw is great for covering up
while watching television or  another favorite use,is throwing it over the half of the bed of the person who always seems to be
colder at night! There are about 325 blankets made each year and they all come with a certificate that lists the Connecticut
farms that made the blanket possible..

2014, the Series 12, was the twelveth year of the Connecticut Blanket project and we
chose the Split Buffalo Plaid.  Seen here below on the right is a Queen in that pattern.  
New that year we also decided to try them in a scarf size and the 2015 Series 13 is a
smaller version of the Split Buffalo Plaid shown on the left.
The Connecticut Blanket Project Committee began giving each years blanket a special name. This year we chose to honor Anna
Burnham for her years of dedication to the Connecticut 4-H and the Connecticut Sheep Breeders Association. Anna and her husband
Herb raised Suffolk sheep and when her daughter wanted to show Southdowns instead they fully supported her flock too.

The committee for the CT Blanket
began naming them in 2016 and the
first was The Winterbrook which was
named after the farm of Laura "Jo" &
Kirby Judd.  Jo was instrumental in
organizing the first blanket and many
more after that.
