Bring out your inner artist
Choose your colours, create your design. With endless design variations, it has never been that easy to give style and class, combining your blanket with your furniture or adding a remarkable touch to the ambiance of your interior.
The perfect blanket
As the yarn makes the quality of the fabric, we source premium colorfast Italian yarns carded from 19.5-micron wool fiber that gives an incredible softness. It takes about 2.5 lbs of extra fine merino wool to make each blanket. Wool has one of the best ratio weight/warmth. It is natural, breathable, sustainable and is warm even when wet. The anti-bacterial inner-property makes the blanket odor resistant.

From the sourcing of yarns, through the production process to the packaging, we make sure that the whole chain respects high environmental and social standards. Wool is a renewable and biodegradable fiber from free range sheep. The dyeing process in Italy complies with strict European standards on chemicals. The blankets are made in Vancouver, British Columbia, where 93% of the electrical power is from clean sources and our packaging is plastic free.
Our small scale and very flexible production facility allows us to innovate with on-demand and custom-made products. This model phases out wastes and unsold items to offer the right piece to the right consumer. We are proud to offer products made in north America, with minimal impact on the environment, no cheap labor involved, and safe for your health.
Behind the scene
Kermodey is launched by the founders of Erdaine, a high quality knitwear brand that designs and manufactures inhouse. Having regularly inquiries for throw blankets, we found out that the offer for quality blankets is limited in terms of design. This is the reason why Kermodey was born.
We specialized in extra-fine merino wool and the use of advanced technology to make quality garments in our own workshop. We studied, tested, checked different materials, fabric textures, templates and programs to offer the best and most customizable throw blanket. That savoir faire is an essential asset to make the Kermodey blankets a reality to you.
The name Kermodey is inspired by the iconic animal of British Columbia, the spirit bear. The bear symbolizes confidence, wisdom, foresight and courage. And that is what we want to be with a blanket we love!
Risks and challenges
We have always believed that if you love something enough, you will be great at it. Well, we love our job, our products and for the first time we will manufacture a personalized piece for each of our customer. We made the prototypes, selected the yarn supplier and we are ready to start production in our studio.
The production of custom blankets implies manufacturing one-by-one pieces. Our main challenges are first, to offer a user friendly tool for customization, then, to track each item from order to delivery. To succeed we introduced stretch goals, so we increase the number of colors to manage along with the investment in online sale and computerized production management tools. With your help, we are confident to deliver the blankets in May and June 2017.
