Two-Spirit Blanket

Two Spirit Artist Ryan Young (Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa) and Eighth Generation team up to bring their line of high-end wool blankets to the marketplace. This two-spirit blanket design is based on a painting that calls out to a traditional Ojibwe story about crows:

The story goes that the crow was once very colorful and had a beautiful singing voice, but during a forest fire, it spent so much time trying to help the other animals that its colorful feathers became blackened with soot and its beautiful singing voice turned hoarse from the smoke.

2-sided design made from 100 percent New Zealand wool and edge-banded in microsuede, covers a queen size bed. Dry clean only. Five percent of all blanket sales support the Inspired Natives Grant for emerging arts entrepreneurs.
