About Us, Thread Talk = Sustainably Made= Eco-Friendly Practices
Chances are, domestic violence has happened to you or someone you love. We know firsthand because it happened to Thread Talk founder, Hannah Kay Herdlinger. She created Thread Talk to sell high-quality, and cozy blankets that fund shelters for other survivors. To us, buying comforting, organic blankets means giving back to those who need them most. The National Intimate Partner, Sexual Violence Survey, says that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men in thU.S.S. have experienced contact with sexual violence, physical violence, and stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 85% of domestic violence victims are women. In addition, physical assault by an intimate partner impacts 1.3 million women annually. Shelters across the country provide these survivors protection, support, and empowerment. But it takes a lot to do their work, and they need help. Thread Talk™ exists tosupportthe support network- to ensure shelters have what they need to save lives.
"It’s the confidence that I strive to instill in domestic violence survivors that will change their lives, and I want to use my story to show how something meant to harm can birth something so good."
— Hannah Kay Herdlinger, Thread Talk Founder
The Power of CONNECTION
Hannah Kay is a domestic violence survivor — one of the 1.3 million women annually impacted by domestic abuse. Her experience set her on a journey from a small town in Georgia to a job with one of the most powerful women in the world and then to start her own company that supports domestic violence shelters across the U.S. Along the way, she discovered humor, transformation, and, most importantly, the power of connection. The result is an inspirational story she shares at conferences, companies, and organizations to eliminate the stigma surrounding domestic violence and to empower women and men to change the world.
What We Do At Thread Talk
We donate 10% of each purchase to domesticshelters.org. We fund critical wish list items for 2600+ shelters nationwide by selling sustainably made fluffy soft blanket that wraps you in Confidence, Serenity, Love, Hope, and Wonder.
Our Mission At Thread Talk
We don’t just do it for the smile on your face when your shipment arrives. Our mission is to empower women and support victims of domestic violence across the country.
Where We Are At Thread Talk
We’re in all 50 U.S. states, including U.S. Hawaii and Alaska- that’s why we partnered with domesticshelters.org- to be available wherever domestic violence victims are in need. Unfortunately, that's everywhere.If you’re aware of a domestic violence program or shelter that is not in the Domestic Shelters database, send an email with the program's name and location, and we'll look into adding it.
Our Impact At Thread Talk
We fund life-saving spaces for domestic violence survivors. 100,000+ critical wish-list items donated. Survivors of domestic violence often flee abuse and violence with nothing but clothes on their backs. Seeking refuge and protection, they turn to domestic violence shelters which operate nationwide and provide survivors with everything they need to start over, for free. The proceeds from our purchases help keep these essential spaces running. And with the significant rise in domestic violence cases due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these shelters need our support now more than ever.
Rather than solely donating blankets, 10% of each purchase funds specific wish-list items that these shelters need, from toiletries and laundry pods to vacuums, cribs, & strollers.

Nothing elevates a room like asoft, warm, and comfy blanket. It’s the perfect touch to every chilly evening, impromptu couch nap, or movie night. The throws and quilts from Clear Givings Market / Thread Talk are the kinds you look forward to curling up in all day. But, of course, it’s also the perfect holiday gift for a friend, family member, or yourself.
Before you get cozy, consider our recommendations for finding ethical and sustainable blankets.
Look for a soft, fluffy blanket made from safe and sustainable materials that are good for you and the environment. Thread Talk use organic (and sometimes traceable) cotton, merino wool quilts, alpaca wool throw, plantlinen, or Tencel. Not only will these be more breathable and better for your body, but you won’t have to worry about shedding microplastics into your home or when it’s time to wash them.
Thread Talk works directly with artisans who handmade gorgeous and snuggling blankets. Consider supporting craftspeople and artisan collectives when you shop for your next blanket. Not only will you have a closer connection to the piece when you know who crafted it, but you’ll also know it was made in ethical conditions.
Third-party certifications are essential for both labor transparency and safe materials. These prove the brand is acting responsibly, sourcing and processing its textiles healthily and sustainably. To be sure your new blanket for dogs was made ethically, with fair wages and labor practices, look for certifications such as Fair Trade and WRAP. For proof that its materials are organic and free of harmful chemicals and dyes, look for certifications from GOTS, Oeko-Tex. Finally, look for safe and sustainably grown cotton labels from BCI and U.S.DA.
