Frequently Asked Questions
Will this blanket irritate my baby's skin?
This blanket is produced from superfine strands of lambswool, which makes it incredibly soft, and as a result it should not irritate your baby's skin.
Scientists have studied wool and have identified that wool allergies are most commonly a result of the chemicals used during the processing and treatment of wool, and not a result of the wool itself. Using natural, eco lambswool ensures that there is as little chance as possible of a baby's skin being irritated by this blanket.
Is wool a practical material for a baby?
Wool is ideal for use with babies, due to it being hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and self-cleaning properties.
Wool is naturally self-cleaning; it contains lanolin (wool fat) which when moist changes to become lanolin soap, cleaning the wool fibers and keeping the blanket hygienic. The lanolin prevents odours from building up in the wool, ensuring it remains smelling fresh and like new.
Wool also repels dirt and is resistant to staining, making it the perfect material for babies and messy children! Due to wool's natural waxy film, liquids sit on top of the wool instead of absorbing into it, meaning they can simply be wiped away.
Can I wash a wool blanket?
If your wool blanket has a build-up of dirt or has a spot stain, you can clean it by following our wool cleaning instructions.
Is wool environmentally friendly?
Wool is a natural material that is available in abundance, meaning it is sustainable and eco-friendly. Wool is also naturally biodegradable meaning that it breaks down and decomposes into the soil, leaving no long-term trace on the environment at the end of its life.
