Humboldt County, CA is known for its beautiful redwoods and lush green landscape.
It's also known for award-winning microbrews, top-shelf marijuana, blurry Bigfoot sightings and an unusually high number of missing person cases - coincidence?
There's a lot to unpack here. We recommend wrapping yourself in this blanket and thinking it over.
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 Humboldt 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 variance as our other blanket styles, but the fringe thread colors may vary, and the green hue of the blanket color may also be slightly different than what's pictured.
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!
I live in the desert, so of course it is hot here. But there can be a little bit a chill first thing in the morning, so having a light blanket available is really nice. It currently sits at the foot of my bed (see picture), and makes for a nice addition.
I ordered the humboldt blanket specifically because it is solid colored/not patterned and I am so happy with it. It came exactly as expected (and quickly!). It may seem like a pretty basic review but it was super important because I needed it for an aspect of my proposal to my (now) fiancee. Trek light gear's customer service was out of this world too. Seriously, you guys kick so much ass.
My wife uses this as her everyday blanket in her office. It is perfect for those mornings when it’s a little chilly. We’ve got three of your blankets and I’m sure we’ll add more in the near future!!
I added the blanket to my bed and find I am sleeping better. It has a nice weight and adds just the right amount of warmth to keep me comfortable. It is well made and I look forward to using it for picnics and outings when the weather changes. Then I will be better able to review the durability of the blanket. This will be my car blanket. I ordered a Radiant blanket as a permanent addition to my bed :-)
I love blankets like some women love shoes!
Every time I go to Mexico, I know all the blanket vendors on the beach by the end of my trip! So when I saw Trek Light Gear on FB, I had to check it out! I bought the Peace Sign blanket & Humboldt blanket as birthday gifts for my two girlfriends and of course, bought one for myself! The blankets are all beautifully made, super soft and look just like the photos! I LOVE that new blanket smell sooooo much!!! I highly recommend purchasing one, two or more for you and your friends! You can have too many shoes, but you can never have enough blankets!!!
