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.

Pacific Northwest CoastBasketry Designs Are Preserved In These Keep Sake Blankets from the Pacific Northwest. They are Native American Reproductions Designed and Hand loomed by Sharon Nani ~ a Non Native and owner of The Knit Tree. We have gotten many requests from various Pacific Northwest tribes and tribal members to design blankets with the various totems.

The Art of the Pacific Northwest Indian Nations is a unique art style all of its own. The different graphic shapes are used to interpret different body parts and characteristics for each animal drawing dependent upon the region. These are harder to depict in a knitwear design where the subtle curves and definite lines must fit in smaller spaces with rectangular shaped knit stitches. The Pacific Northwest Coast Art is applicable to many Indian Nations ranging from Alaska to Northern California. This would include: Tlingit, Tahltan, Kaigani Haida, Nisga's, Gitksan, Haida, Haisla, Coast Tsimshian, Nuxalk, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, Oweekeno, Nuu-chah-nulth, Makah, Coast Salish, Tolowa, Yurok, and Wiyot.

Native American Blankets are all Custom Knit so you can select your own colors for the 2 color blankets. Each design is offered in acrylic or merino wool yarn.
