Blankets have the function to protect our bodies from the physical and emotional world; they embed our memories in their fabric materiality. Wool blankets are symbolic because they are especially versatile. Our relationship with sheep has been a crucial component to modern civilization for thousands of years.

Wool blankets are the core material component to The Blanket Project. If you have a story to share about the wool blankets in your life and/or you have a wool blanket that you would like to contribute to this project, please contact me directly.
