Wool: The Natural Insulator

There’s no better fabric to cozy up to than soft, sumptuous wool. Prized as a natural insulator, it retains heat and absorbs moisture to keep you warm and dry. Wool is made from the fleece of sheep that are shorn annually, so it’s naturally renewable. It’s also more elastic than any other plant or animal fiber, making it exceptionally durable. Is it any wonder we chose it for our heirloom-quality blankets?

We are proud to offer products in USDA-certified organic wool and natural wool, so there’s something for every budget. Both types of wool are machine washable and designed to last a lifetime if cared for properly.

Our organic wool is sourced from Argentina, where farmers use only the healthiest practices to manage the sheep and the land. Small flocks of sheep eat organic feed and forage, and are never treated with synthetic pesticides. Once shorn the wool fiber is spun into yarn and minimally processed. Skilled craftsmen at Brahms Mount in Maine weave the yarn into fabric on 100-year-old shuttle looms before cutting and sewing it into our blankets and pillow covers. One of the few remaining American textile producers, the small mill meets the highest standards with respect to its people and the environment.

Due to the limited supply and high price of organic wool, we offer natural wool products as well. Our high-grade natural wool is both sourced and woven in neighboring Canada. The fiber is shorn from humanely treated sheep that graze in open green pastures. After spinning and dyeing, the fabric is made into blankets at a facility that has been owned and operated by the same family for decades. Like all of our manufacturers, they meet with our stringent social and environmental criteria as verified by third-party auditors.

Drape your home in our luxurious natural wool, because your family and our planet are worth the investment.
