Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. We appreciate your patience as We go through the retirement process.  For this time, we hope to still provide you with our custom knits in the Native, Camo, and Yarn Kits Categories.  We will be taking limited orders on the Winona Camo™ Sweaters, Vests, and Pants.  I will publish those items until my order limit has been reached and I will notify you of the approximate waiting time for your order.  Please note, that some of the colorways are no longer available due to the yarn distributors eliminating the yarn color.

Hupa Yurok Karuk Tribes of N CaliforniaBasketry Designs Are Preserved In These Keep Sake Blankets from Northern California. Darlene Marshall is the artisan for the Hupa, Yurok Karuk Blankets. Darlene is a registered member of the Hupa Tribe.

These basketry marks are geometric designs. Many Tribes use Geometric Designs in their Basketry and Bead work along with Florals. So the same design may be recognized by a different name dependent upon the area. Some of the Indian Nations that use Geometric Designs within their art are: Apache, Aztec, Blackfoot, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chippewa, Comanche, Chumash, Coast Salish, Fox, Hupa, Haida, ÜInca, Karuk, Klamath, Kwakiutl,ÜLakota, Maidu, Mayan, MeWuk, Miwok, Modoc, Navajo, Nez Perce, Nootka, Ojibwa, Paiute, Pit River, Pomo, Seminole, Shoshone, Sioux, Tlingit, Umatilla, Ute, Wailaki, Washo, Wintu, Yakama, Yokut, Yurok. The book "Language of the Robe" by Robert W. Kapoun with Charles J. Lohrmann shows in many ways the importance of the Native American Blanket and the honor in receiving such a gift.

Native American Blankets are all Custom Knit so you can select your own colors and each design is offered in acrylic or merino wool yarn. Some of the designs are offered in a lap size.

If you would like a design in a lap size in a motif that you do not see offered, contact customer service to see if it can be knit. .
