Blue Hen Blankets and Yarn available for purchase throughout spring

April 20, 2011 under CANR News

Blue Hen Blankets and Yarn, established in 2009, creates the blankets and yarn, made from wool shorn from the University of Delaware’s flock of Dorset sheep at the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

“Blue Hen Blankets make the perfect gift for graduation, special occasions of UD alumni and friends, or keeping warm during a Fightin’ Blue Hens football game,” says Tom Sims, CANR deputy dean.

Two blankets sizes are available: lap throws and queen sized blankets. The un-dyed natural wool blankets are edged with blue in true UD spirit. Each blanket is labeled with an individual serial number and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Profits from the sale of Blue Hen Blankets and Yarn help to support the undergraduate large animal teaching programs of the Department of Animal and Food Sciences.

The products will be available through a variety of venues this spring. Once the supply has been sold, interested customers will have to wait until next year’s sales.
