Centuries-old Scandinavian weaving techniques have defined the wares of Røros Tweed since 1940, and for its latest collection of blankets, the company has collaborated with the French designer Inga Sempé. The two designs, Agnès (shown) and Bernadette, highlight Røros Tweed’s signature material—pure wool from Norwegian sheep—and come in three colors each. 781.444.7745, www.rorostweed.com
