Eco-Friendly Blankets To Keep You Warm This Winter

The chilly nights and mornings of December mean it's time to swap, or perhaps layer, our fall blankets with something heavier. As always, I look to eco-friendly options and fortunately there's no shortage of beautiful, colorful, and cozy blankets made from materials that are organic, recycled, and responsibly sourced.

Legna (pronounced lay-nyah) is a relatively new wood fiber created in Italy as an eco-friendly alternative to the cotton industry.

Legna has received the European Union Technology Award for Sustainable Development.
