Colour Block Workshop is a line of modern quilts. They are handmade with care in my studio, with my mighty sewing machine, in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. I source and up-cycle vintage wool blankets to use as an alternative to cotton batting and to inspire my colour palettes. Wool is incredibly warm, resilient, and naturally antibacterial — perfectly cozy and great for low maintenance washing. The quilts are currently available in two sizes and in a selection of one-of-a-kind designs.

Just like your favourite and loved wool items, this blanket should avoid being over-washed. Over-washing wool can break down the fibres and protective, naturally occurring oils. For regular maintenance, I recommend spot cleaning, shaking and hanging in the fresh air, and brushing. Often a little ventilation is all wool needs to feel fresh.
If the blanket is due for a deeper cleaning, use a wool-friendly detergent and use a cold, gentle or hand wash cycle, then lay flat to dry. Store this blanket in a tightly sealed bin or bag. I love to store mine with cedar to repel any pests, and for its lovely scent.
