Eighth Generation are a Native American owned brand that do a range of blankets.

"Blanket Of Knowledge"

I don't know anything about them, but they were mentioned in an interview with Erik Brodt of Ginew.

Looking for a blanket suggestions. Twin sized (66” x 90”) organic cotton or linen mid to lightweight blanket. Anything anyone has tried and likes? I’m looking for something to replace a blanket I’ve had forever which is starting to disintegrate. See a few different brands via google but reviews seem to be all over the place.

@neversummer I've got a Donna Wilson bear blanket in lambswool. She's started offering them in cotton, along with a cat.

"Bear Blanket"

There's also lino and folk woven patterns in her cotton blankets.

The wool blanket is nice, but I haven't seen the cotton ones. They're made in different factories (and countries), so I can't draw a fair comparison.

BasShu sell traditional style patchwork quilts, which might be an alternative to blankets. I've seen these at Heffernan and Haire here in Melbourne, and they look good.

"Basshu Quilt"

Bemboka do some very nice (and very expensive) cotton blankets. I haven't seen them, but the finishing looks good in the photos.

@Graeme Thank for the suggestions. The Basshu quilts are really nice looking. Don’t mind spending some money on bedding, after all it’s where we spend the most time. I’ve also had the blanket this will replace since I was a kid, at least 30 years. 
I’m now 39, do this could be the last one I ever buy. Which is kind of depressing.

@neversummer alternatively you can look on it as buying something that lasts! :)

@Graeme True, that’s how I look at Iron Heart stuff. It’ll outlast me and belong to my daughter one day.
