ohhio is a design studio focused on creating handmade home goods for discerning customers who value individual and truly qualitative items. for this project, designer anna marinenko began experimenting with an exceptionally soft and luxurious material called merino wool yarn. the material’s distinctive properties gave the creator an impulse to knit the first blanket, made completely with her hands, without using needles, creating 3-inches stitches.

the 100% merino wool products guarantee a soft, naturally breathable and warm product that regulates body temperature and controls odor. the collection contains blankets and scarves that come in seven different colors: yellow, pink, blue, light gray, white, dark gray, and green. apart from their conventional use, they have been applied to interiors and some were ordered specially for christmas decorations and exhibitions. the ohhio collection will warm you up on chilly evenings, and will be a pleasant reminder of sunnier spring days.
