A dark, neutral tartan, the Black Watch was first worn by the watchmen, highly trained members of the Scottish military who’d combined their clan’s patterns to stand as one. Owed primarily to its widely appealing aesthetic quality, it has become one of the most popular and sought after plaids.
When collaborating withNWKC'sJohn Mootywhile he wasat Faribault Woolen Mill on a Black Watch plaid blanket, he offered a unique suggestion.
By combining the green from theU.S. Army, the blue from theU.S. Navy, and the black from theWest Point Academy blankets, Faribault has created a subtly new, beautiful, and altogetherAmericantake on a pattern with a rich and wonderful history.
These thick, warm blankets carry Faribault's label and are made of the same MIL-SPEC yarns as those that protect those whose job it is to protect and serve the rest of us.
