A strong environmental ethic is implemented in the manufacture of these soft wool blankets, the makers are able to trace the provenance of all the wool used, back to the individual farmer meaning they can ensure the finest quality, whilst caring for the sheep and the planet.
Care: Wool has excellent natural dirt-resistant properties which makes it unnecessary to wash often. The wool cleans itself and repels dirt with its naturally-occurring oil (lanolin). A tip: let your blanket air outside in humid weather. If your blanket still needs maintenance, please follow the instructions below:
Dry clean only. Iron on medium temperature.
Do not tumble dry or use bleach.
