Pure natural materials and ecological production

Made of high quality natural materials, a blanket may be cherished for years to come. Literally, a wool blanket is made of pure organic new wool, cashmere or alpaca, as well as manufacturer use organic cotton, hemp, bamboo fibers and other ecological materials. The fibres come from certified organic farming or from certified keeping of animals in a species-appropriate environment. This also includes genuine lambskin, which has been gently tanned only with plantal ingredients. This ensures that the cultivation, the dyeing process and the further processing are carried out without pollutants. This serves a healthy environment and respects and protects humans and animals. Child labor and genetically manipulated raw materials are excluded for woolen blankets in organic quality.

If you’re searching for an organic blanket, different needs can play a role. Genuine woollen blankets are made from pure virgin wool. They are naturally dirt-repellent and anti-allergenic. New wool, alpaca and cashmere have outstanding warming properties and regulate moisture automatically. For vegans, blankets made from organic cotton, bamboo or hemp are available. These natural fibers are also of natural origin, but guaranteed without animal components, also in the further processing.
