"Thank you so much for the blankets. Shortly after they arrived my furnace stopped functioning. I sandwiched both blankets in-between my Sherpa blankets and topped off my bed with a comforter. All of my four dogs and two cats snuggled under the covers with me. Temp in house hovered around 46 degrees. We slept comfortably thanks to your blankets. God bless! And thanks again!"

The large blanket is perfect for Emergencies, Camping, Survival, Bedding, Cabins, and Outdoor Warmth. Natural wool is known for its excellent thermal quanlities, even when wet. While it traps heat from the body it also wicks away moisture to prevent condensation so you stay dry and warm while you sleep.

The double lock-stitched hem protects the edge. The blanket is perfect for rugged or harsh situations. The dark colors, contrasting hems, and rounded corners make an attractive bed cover. Whether it's used in the home, cabin, or with camping gear it will enhance the appearance of any space.
TRIPLE WASHED During production, the blanket is triple washed resulting in a soft, hygienic, hypoallergenic surface. The blanket also resists fiber shedding.

Why do wool blankets smell out of the package?
Wool is dyed for coloring. The odor comes from the dye. When the blankets are packaged for some time without being able to breathe, the odor builds up some.
How do I remove the dye smell from a wool blanket?
Air out the blanket for a few days. The odor will dissipate.
Why are wool blankets sometimes stiff when first removed from the bag?
Most loom-woven products can get stiff when packed tightly for some time. Often blankets are imported from overseas. They are packed tightly into cargo ships for weeks at a time. The fibers stiffen temporarily.
Most of the time, normal use for a day or two will let the fibers relax. To soften the blanket further, hand wash and line-dry the blanket.
The EPG wool blankets are washable. In fact, they can get softer with each wash.
Like with all loom-woven textiles, we recommend hand-washing, especially for the first washes. We discourage machine washing. However, if necessary they can be machine washed by themselves in cold water on a delicate cycle like you would silk. We recommend using a detergent formulated specifically for wool (i.e. Woolite) for best results. Wool blankets will likely shed during the first wash or two. To maximize the life of your blanket (and to avoid unnecessary shedding), we recommend washing your blanket by hand.
We also recommend avoiding the dryer. Dryers are hard on wool blankets. Line-drying or rack-drying is much gentler.
You may also consider having a wool blanket dry-cleaned.
