Get the perfect night’s sleep with this organic Australian wool-filled blanket. Australian wool comes from the perfect climate and landscape that produces some of the whitest, finest and cleanest natural wool in the world. The clusters trap air in tiny pockets for even warmth distribution. Wool makes an ideal fill for bedding and provides lightness and comfort all year round. The organic wool blanket is encased in an organic cotton cover. Organic wool is produced to a rigorous standard. The sheep are raised on organic pasture and feed, free from agricultural contaminants. Once the sheep have been shorn the wool needs to be cleaned. Organic wool is cleaned using only hot water and vegetable based soaps with no carbonization. It is a resilient material and doesn’t compress over time the way other materials can. Wool insulates incredibly well and maintains an even temperature. Your body will be able to stay warm in winter and cool in summer, meaning you won’t wake up or sleep restlessly due to temperature. It is a complete myth that wool is hot. Wool is an incredible material and will allow air to pass through easily in order to keep the temperature down when it is hot. Wool has the unique ability to absorb the moisture without getting damp. Woolen fibers have a self-cleaning mechanism which forces moisture to the surface where it dissipates into the air, preventing dampness from penetrating to the core of the blanket. Washing Instructions: To ensure long life & infrequent cleaning, you can maintain the blanket by spot cleaning if required. It must be washed in cold water on delicate cycle using detergents used for delicate fabrics. Must use commercial size washer or dryer. Do not wring or twist, do not bleach.
