East Coast or West Coast, you've likely got a 'Newport' that you think of first.
For us, it's a magical place in Rhode Island - and home to two of the best music festivals our country has to offer: Newport Folk and Newport Jazz.
The festivals take place in an old fort, originally established in 1799 under President John Adams (!), and the setting is quintessential Rhode Island. You can sit on the pier, gaze out on the breathtaking ocean views, eat lobstah rolls and sip on Del's Lemonade, all while hearing some of the best-curated bands of any festival around.
If you've got a bucket list, add Newport Jazz or Folk Fest to it, and bring this navy Newport Blanket with you for one of the best weekends of your life.
Because of their handmade nature, the color and details may vary on each blanket (scroll down for more info).
Remember your favorite blanket as a child?
The one that you took everywhere, the one that made you feel safe, and the one that smelled like every memory you've ever had?
You're a grown-up now.
And this is your new Adventure Binky.
Yoga Blanket. Beach Blanket. Picnic Blanket. Camping Blanket. Life Blanket.
From music festivals to romantic nights under the stars, and from the back of your truck to the edge of the Grand Canyon - the Newport Adventure Blanket from Trek Light Gear is your new best friend.
This midweight blanket is soft to the touch to keep you warm and cozy on cold nights and still plenty big enough to share with a friend.
It all begins with clothing.
Every blanket is made from excess clothing materials - first, shredded into a pulp, and then repurposed 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.
So, that's the material, but what about the process?
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 our artisans also continue the tradition of home weaving - allowing them to determine their own hours, wages, and workload.
As a solid color blanket, these won't have as much detail variance as our other blanket styles, but the fringe thread colors may vary, and the main hue of the blanket color can be slightly different than what's pictured. Imperfections and variances are part of what makes handwoven art special (just like you)!
Every blanket is beautiful in its uniqueness so you should feel comfortable that you'll get a blanket you'll be happy with - but if you have questions about this please feel free to contact us before you order!
For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.

So I've had the Humboldt since May '19 and I love LOVE LOVE it.
Indoors? Best blanket. Outdoors? Best blanket.
Loved it so much, I *had* to get one for my wife in her favorite color! Doesn't matter if its's cold, warm, cool or chilly this blanket always feels "just right". Have loaned it to friends at music fests and camping, they call it the "grandma" blanket (tm) because it always feels like a loving hug from grandma...
Katniss approves too, she was confused when the second blanket showed up!
I love this blanket! The only drawback is that it does leave navy fuzzies from time to time.
Great quality, and incredibly comfortable. Love my blankets!
this blanket is very soft and just the right amount of heavy! perfect by the fire or on the couch <3 <3
They're the gift that keeps on giving; it's been solo cold this past week. Fortunately I received my blanket for Xmas, and it's kept me warm and comfortable during my streaming binges.
