Lap Blankets for Outdoor Dining

Julie Carlson April 17, 2012

The proprietors of Suppenküche in San Francisco are opposed to heating lamps (“So ugly,” they say) in their biergarten. Instead, they provide stacks of scratchy WWII surplus wool blankets to ward off the Pacific chill. Here’s a roundup of blankets for your own domestic biergarten.

Above: The Vintage Swiss Army Blanket is $298 at Sundance. A similar Swiss Army Blanket is €155 at Manufactum.

Above: Berg Blanket by Anderssen Voll; featuring a color gradient displaying the complex weave of two different types of fibers (50 percent cotton and 50 percent wool); CA $250 at Mjolk in Toronto.

Above: We’ve also like the old-world look of the Wolldecke Schweizer Alpen-Club Blanket; €143 at Manufactum (only available in Europe).

Above: The Rustic Striped Throw is made of heavy organic linen backed with cotton flannel; $218 at Terrain.

Above: The Senovinis Blanket from Japanese company Fog Linen is made of 100 percent cotton; $140 at Horne.
