Wool Blankets Unlike Any Other

For over 100 years, wool blankets were made the same way: thick and dense, stiff and scratchy, designed to be layered over something rather than to feel soft to the touch...

But these days, our temperature-controlled indoor environments require a wool blanket that feels great all year round: light and supple, fluid and flexible enough to drape over your body, and with a soft, smooth feel against bare skin.

“Such a pleasant surprise... I usually don’t like wool and find it irritating on my skin, but was so impressed with how soft this was... much smoother than what I expected.”
- Suri K.

How we do it
Some Blankets Aren’t For Layering Some Blankets Aren’t For Layering

Some Blankets Aren’t For Layering

Modern Staples were designed for people who wished their ‘everyday’ blankets could be softer, richer and even a little more sumptuous.

The yarn used in our blankets is closer in fineness to the fiber used in a wool suit. It has a lower micron (fiber diameter), giving it a softer, smoother feel than other types of wool.

These longer, finer fibers used make the wool yarns softer and smoother, which in turn give our blankets that unmistakably cozy Modern Staples feel against your skin.

That’s why they’re not ‘layering’ blankets – you can snuggle inside one wearing as much or as little as you want.

Drag the slider left to right to reveal the space between yarns, exposed by light. This fiber-to-air ratio makes our blankets uniquely lightweight but supremely warm. Traditional wool blankets use more tightly-packed yarns with less air between them, and often feel heavy or too hot

The Blanket That Gives You More, All Year Long

Modern Staples are trans-seasonal blankets, designed for year-round use: they’re warm in winter but won’t suffocate you when the AC’s on in summer.

Every textile is basically a combination of fiber and air. Our wool blankets are woven in a way that traps more air between their fibers, using fluffy spun yarns rather than dense, compact ones.

The result is a blanket that’s fluid and flexible, so you’ll never feel overwhelmed or stuffy. Just relaxed and cozy.

Wrap, Drape, Snuggle and Snooze

There’s nothing quite like curling up in your favorite spot with a cozy blanket. And just because Modern Staples are beautiful to look at doesn’t mean they can’t handle a little action.

These are strong, flexible, daily use blankets – perfect for wrapping and wearing, not just admiring. Drape one over yourself and notice how it conforms to your body’s contours while you relax on the couch or wander to the kitchen.

Unlike most wool blankets, Modern Staples are double face woven – each consists of two thin fabrics woven simultaneously and joined together. It’s the perfect ‘warmth to weight ratio’: enough wool to keep you toasty, but light enough to allow your blanket to breathe.

Warmth That’s Juuuuust Right... Warmth That’s Juuuuust Right...

Warmth That’s Juuuuust Right...

Modern Staples blankets are generously sized, so you’re always covered when you want to be (no more frozen feet in winter).

And because wool has a natural ‘wicking’ quality – it draws moisture away from your skin – you won’t feel clammy, only dry and cozy (no more ‘kicking a leg out’ to stay cool in summer).

All our blankets are light, breathable and drapey. Wrap yourself in a Modern Staples and you can still use your hands and arms to type, eat, read or wrestle over the remote...

The only question is: which blanket will you choose?
