Soleil | Merino Wool Throw Blanket | Bowerbird Studio


“Soleil” Design

Light up a room with the addition of a generously sized Italian merino wool throw blanket. Designs reference the tradition of pieced fabric quilts but are made from buttery soft Italian merino wool, promising coziness and warmth. There are so many reasons to love merino wool; it is lightweight, breathable, hypoallergenic, flame resistant, and luxuriously soft.  Choose an Italian merino wool throw blanket as a special occasion gift—such as a wedding or housewarming, a dramatic accent for any room in your home, or as a gift for yourself.  In these unsettled times, don’t we all deserve to wrap ourselves in sumptuous warmth?

100% Italian merino wool throw blanket, generously sized at 60″ x 60″. Blankets feature six colors of the finest, softest wool and are carefully designed in Maine. Blankets are lightweight, breathable, hypoallergenic, flame resistant, and luxuriously soft.

This piece is currently located at Maine Craft Portland.

For forty years, Betsy Leighton’s professional life was anchored in Baltimore. An initial stint as an art teacher at two schools led to a variety of administrative roles.  As fulfilling as she found her work in education, Betsy welcomed the chance to begin a new chapter and to devote myself once again to the arts. With their three children launched, Betsy and her husband moved to the tiny lobstering village of New Harbor in midcoast Maine.

Betsy is now focusing on art made with fabric — colors and patterns that brighten and enliven the spaces we share with our families and friends.

I am drawn to fabrics that are playful, beautiful, and saturated with color. Each piece I create is thoughtfully designed and meticulously constructed. In uncertain times, we may regain our balance by focusing on our basic needs: a well-cooked meal, a spin around the kitchen table with the music turned up, or a quiet conversation cushioned with a cozy pillow.

My hope is to brighten our lives with color and pattern and to help us discover the beauty and joy within our daily routines.
