Kitfox Design Group Releases the Waterfowl Hunting Blanket

Friday, April 28th, 2023

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (April 28, 2023) – Kitfox Design Group is excited to announce their latest throw blanket project, the Waterfowl Hunting-themed blanket.

The Waterfowl Blanket is woven in a small family-owned textile mill located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The throw features several popular waterfowl species, including the Blue-winged Teal, Mallard, Wood Duck, and the Canadian Goose. The throw blankets are made on European Jacquard looms with roughly eight miles of American-made, 100% cotton yarn. 

“After completing four war centric throw blanket designs, it was time to take a break and work on something a little more lighthearted.” said Sara Westman, the owner of Kitfox Design Group and illustrator behind the blanket. “This is really only the start of a spin off collection centering around bird hunting, but as the owner of two labs it was only natural to start with waterfowl.”

Pre-orders open April 28th at 9:00 a.m. CST and will close at 11:59 p.m. CST on May 12. This time around, pre-orders will begin shipping as soon as two weeks after pre-orders close.

The blanket is launching in two sizes: a throw which measures roughly 54”x72” and a queen measuring roughly 62”x84”. The blankets will retail at $125 and $150 plus shipping respectively and will ship worldwide. 

The blankets and other items from the Waterfowl Collection are available for purchase on the Kitfox website

Stuff I Like – The Flight Suit from Kühl

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023

For the man who wears everything Kühl comes the Flight Suit. This jumpsuit has two interesting features: a hood and thumb loops which make it great for kühler weather. It’s also made from a pretty robust knit, similar to a heavy sweatshirt.

I’ve got one and it’s über komfi. Made from a knit fabric, it’s got some stretch and has plenty of room. If you go off of their size guide and sit in between sizes, I suggest you go down, unless for some reason you want to layer under it.

Even though there are only four zippered pockets including chest and thighs pockets, I find myself looking for items like my cell phone. There’s plenty of storage.

Offered in Dark Moss, Raven, and Pirate Blue in sizes Small-XLarge with 30 or 32 inseams.
