We’ve already seen some of the impressive new Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandising, like the Sphero BB-8 that was unveiled last week. The new Star Wars stuff we’ve seen so far has mostly been in the toy realm. Now, a wool blanket manufacturer that has been producing since 1863 is taking their products to a galaxy far, far away.
The Pendleton Woolen Mills in Portland, Oregon has designed four limited edition Star Wars blankets. The four designs available include one with the heroes from the original trilogy, one with Darth Vader and his team of Storm Troopers, another one with tie fighters, Star Destroyers and the Death Star, and one featuring the new baddie from A Force Awakens, Kylo Ren. The designs are an interesting blend of Star Wars and traditional-native designs.Each blanket is spun from virgin wool and cotton, and is available for $249. [Purchase]
