All of the cozy fall feels…
I have a bit of an obsession with blankets. I think it’s being a mix of a homebody and having so much wanderlust at the same time. So I tend to really love blankets that mix into my eclectic home well,but also I can take with me to travel on an adventure to cozy up in and take photos with. On my adventure I’m sharing with you today, I took my Sackcloth & Ashes blanket with me.
I heard of Sackcloth and Ashes while traveling last year at a really cute boutique in Memphis, TN. Their blankets first off are insanely soft,but very warm! But my favorite part is for every blanket purchased they give a blanket to a local homeless shelter. The owner of Sackcloth & Ashes Bob Dalton, was inspired to help the homeless after his single, hardworking mom found herself living on the streets in 2013. He realized not all homeless make the decision to live on the streets and he began dedicating his life to help. He called shelters asking what they needed and they all said blankets. Since then he and the company have donated 7,500 blankets to homeless shelters. So not only is this a USA brand,but it’s also a brand with a huge heart behind it that’s changing lives.
We took the blanket out for the evening at Stone Barns to enjoy a snack and keep warm because it gets a little chillier as the sun goes down. It was a perfect evening.
