We had to work long and hard to make one medium sized blanket or rug. I use only natural wool from sheep raised in the high ukrainian Carpathian Mountain pastures, color with natural dyes. First, we thoroughly wash and dry the raw wool, comb and fluff it. The combed wool is easily processed and spun into threads (roving yarn), which are then used to make rug on a hand-made loom.
Then we place woven rug in a big wood barrel narrowed to the bottom under strong head of water jet. The flow of water rapidly increase, rotating blankets for hours. That's how rug became tight and fluffy.
Later on we dry rugs outside on open air, comb with a special brush to loose extra fibers.

In autumn and winter, when the room is cool, the woolen blanket will warm, and in the summer it is not hot at all under it. It is hard to create something better than that provided by nature, and the blanket of sheep wool is the evidence of this. Because wool is a perfect temperature regulator for the human body, in addition, it has the ability to absorb 35% of moisture, which is evaporated during sleep by the human body. At the same the blanket remains completely dry. This item is in the category "Home & Garden\Bedding\Blankets & Throws".
