Gather has been working in collaboration with local wool and dye expert Kalea Turner-Beckman, local farmers, and Gather weaver Shanon Nelson to bring you a line of blanket wool designed specifically for weavers. This is a project that has been over a year in the making.

Parkland Blanket Wool has been extensively woven and sampled in our studio. When you weave with Parkland Blanket Wool, you are joining us in this sustainable project. With your support, we aim to offer you a new local weaving wool each year.

Please make sure you purchase enough for your project. We have limited quantities- once they are gone they are gone.
