Wool Blankets 

The UConn Department of Animal Science offers a limited number of wool products for sale each year. We currently have a medium split buffalo plaid grey/tan pattern named the "Grant Croft" pattern blanket (pictured below) made from wool from the University of Connecticut’s flock of sheep as well as other flocks in Connecticut. The blanket project is run by a group of people who belong to the CT Sheep Breeders Association.  Each product comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity and series number.
