Overcoming Common Misconceptions with Wool Blankets

Renowned for their warmth and durability, wool blankets have been cherished for generations. However, like any other product, wool blankets may sometimes be misunderstood, leading to misconceptions. In this blog, we will debunk these common misconceptions and provide you with simple tips on how to address any minor challenges that may arise. With this knowledge at your disposal, you can fully embrace the benefits of these cosy companions.

Itchiness and rough texture

One of the most common concerns people have with wool blankets is the potential for itchiness and a rough texture. This can be attributed to the natural fibres of wool and individual sensitivity levels. To mitigate this, look for blankets that have been specially finished to minimise potential roughness. Our wool goes through a meticulous processing and finishing stage that involves specialised techniques to enhance its softness and reduce any potential roughness, allowing you to fully embrace the cosy feel of our wool blankets.

Pilling and Shedding

Another common worry people have with wool blankets is the occurrence of pilling and shedding, where small balls of fibre form on the surface or loose fibres shed over time. Contrary to common beliefs, pilling is not a sign of poor-quality wool but is more common in premium yarns due to their unique spinning process. Once the loose fibres have risen to the surface through initial use, pilling won’t occur. Given time, the situation will resolve on its own.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Contrary to common misconceptions, cleaning and maintaining our wool blankets is simple and hassle-free. Yes, many wool blankets often require special care when it comes to cleaning and maintenance and are labelled as dry-clean only, which can be inconvenient and costly. However, our wool blankets can be hand-washed or machine-washed on a gentle cycle. See our Product Care page for simple care tips so you can ensure that your wool items stay fresh, clean and looking their best for years to come.

Allergies and Sensitivities

Individuals with allergies or sensitivities may have concerns about using wool due to the fear that it will exacerbate their symptoms. On the contrary, wool boasts a myriad of benefits to help lessen symptoms thanks to its hypoallergenic properties. Resistant to dust mites, bacteria, mould and mildew, wool promotes better indoor air quality. Also, the natural lanolin content repels dust and dirt.

Wool blankets: Timeless, warm, and hypoallergenic. Addressing common concerns like itchiness and pilling, our blankets are crafted for comfort and designed to last. Embrace wool blankets for a cosy home and the peace of mind they bring with their remarkable properties.
