The Mystery Blanket
Here's what you can expect, with no expectations of course:
You get one of our high-quality blankets, but the color and style is a mystery until it shows up at your door!
What you receive may be one of our best-selling blankets from any price range, a unique variation of one of our current styles, or a completely new design or colorway that we don't carry on our site.
While all details can vary from blanket to blanket, rest assured that you'll receive a blanket of the same quality and craftsmanship as all other comparable styles we sell on our site.
These are brand new blankets, and they aren't factory seconds or defects.
Due to the nature of this offer, all Mystery Blanket sales are final and we can't accept returns or exchanges on these items.
We're confident you'll love what you get, but if you're extremely picky about colors or patterns you're much better off ordering one of our standard blanket styles.
Ordering More Than One Mystery Blanket?
What gets shipped out always depends on what's in our mystery stock on the day you order.
"Mystery Blanket" does not mean a randomly chosen unique blanket - so please be aware that when ordering multiple mystery blankets (either on the same day or weeks apart) you may receive blankets that are the same or similar color/style.
If you're giving gifts or it's essential to you that each blanket you receive is completely different, we recommend that you order from the individual styles on our site.
Want To See Some Examples?
Many of the product reviews on this page have photos from our happy Mystery Blanket customers (all verified purchasers) to give you an idea of what you might receive - but remember, yours may be completely different than anything pictured!
When you receive your blanket, take a picture of it and share it in a review so others can see what you got!

A Uniquely Handmade Item
These aren't machine-made clones - every Trek Light Blanket is woven by hand on a traditional handloom. The artistry of the weaver is in every piece, and that truly means that every blanket made and sold is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.
That means you should expect variances!
As a handmade and handwoven blanket, there may be variances in the blanket design details and, since we source our yarn from 100% recycled materials, the blanket colors may even vary slightly from what's pictured.
Imperfections and variances are exactly what makes handwoven art special (just like you)!
Imperfections (Are Beautiful)
Due to their handwoven nature, our blankets may have some stray, loose, or pop-out threads, even when they're brand new. They're not a sign that your blanket is going to fall apart - and they're all carefully inspected and tied off where necessary to make sure your blanket is made to last.
These little artifacts are meant to be appreciated and are intentionally left intact by the weavers. It's what gives handwoven blankets their character and sets them apart from machined textiles!
How It's Made
How It's Made
Made With 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Materials
It all begins with clothing.
Every blanket is made from excess clothing materials that otherwise would end up in the landfill - first, they're shredded into a pulp and then they're upcycled into yarn.
By repurposing high-quality materials and preventing them from ending up in the landfill, we're able to minimize our environmental impact and create less waste for our planet.
Handwoven By Mexican Artisans
Every blanket is handwoven in Mexico on a traditional wooden pedal loom by Indigenous artisans continuing a long tradition of craftsmanship and creativity.
The best things aren't made in factories. And that's why many of our artisans also continue the tradition of home weaving - allowing them to determine their own hours, wages, and workload.
For the absolute best results, we recommend dry cleaning the blankets as it will always be the safest and most gentle process for them.
But, we're also big fans of this Mitch Hedberg line:
"This shirt is dry clean only. Which means... it's dirty."
We get it, it can be a deterrent if your favorite blanket is the one thing that forces you to have to make a trip to the dry cleaners. Especially when you use it every day like you should.
Which is exactly why we made sure that all of our blankets are washer-friendly! Just do it with love.
If you do wash at home - do it on a cold, delicate cycle and then either hang the blanket to air dry or tumble dry on the lowest heat and tumble setting (again, delicate is the way!).

I took a risk with the mystery blankets because there are a few patterns I've seen people received that I low-key loathed. However, at this price point, I decided I'd get two blankets for the price of one full price one. I received two blankets with the same red and white pattern. At first I wasn't sure but now I like them! Since we're living full time in a camper right now, I'm using one on the couch as a dog barrier and the other gets rotated between the outdoor dog perch and as a picnic blanket near the fire pit. Definitely a rugged outdoor blanket, I wouldn't use it on a bed or to nap on. But perfect with having dogs and spending time outside!
This is Rusty. He is in his favorite napping spot, having pulled the couch pillows down so he can nestle against my Trek Light Gear blanket (in the background). We both love it.
A friend in Dallas had some of your blankets and I loved them. I chose the Mystery Blanket option because I liked ALL the design options so I knew I would be happy with whatever I got. I received two of the Divided Sky design and couldn't be happier. The blankets are a substantial weight, but not too heavy, and seem very durable. Great quality at a great price -- mystery solved!
Love the mystery blanket I received. My kids love it too. Will order more for gifts.
l ordered 2 mystery blankets and was surprised that I received 2 of the same blanket. But they are made really well and are just beautiful. I received the Divided Sky Blanket in Rust !!
I love the blanket and the colors are perfect. I haven't taken it with me anywhere yet cause it just looks too nice on my bed.
I originally ordered a blanket for my son that camps all the time. He talked so much about the blanket that I just had to get one myself.
Thank you Trek Light for such nice blankets.
