This blanket comes from a company that has been milling wool for well over a century. It selects only the finest grades of wool from around the world and within the U.S., paying special attention to the weaving and processing of each piece. Originally launched in the 1950s, the pure lambswool blanket is known as the “workhorse” for its easy maintenance (just throw it in the wash on “cool”). The material is moth-proofed, so you can store the blanket in warmer months and not worry about finding holes in it come winter. The cells of the wool fiber naturally overlap, much like the shingles of a roof, creating a tightly packed surface that keeps heat in and moisture out. New Zealand lambswool in particular is known for its luster and high durability. Each piece is crafted on-site – from the dying and spinning of the wool fibers to the finishing touches.
When putting the blanket in the wash, use a gentle detergent and set machine to a cool, delicate cycle. The blanket can be hung dry on the line or in the dryer on low heat. The material is moth-proofed so you can store the blanket in summer months without worry of it being damaged. This formula is added in very small amounts to the wool dye bath, adhering to the wool just like the dye, so it will never rub off on the skin or wash out. It is non-toxic and not harmful to humans or pets.
The more than 150 year-old wool mill that manufactures these blankets wastes nothing and recycles everything as part of its business and manufacturing model. The company’s state-of-the-art water processing equipment takes waste heat during processing and pre-heats the incoming water supply through the use of heat-exchangers. This gives an estimated 93% energy re-use. The wool is shorn from live sheep, all of which are treated humanely.
