The Warm Woolens Co-op was formed to provide high quality blankets made from high quality wool. The Co-op has about 15 farms. We have sent wool to MacAusland's in Prince Edward Island and were very pleased with the results. However, we voted to find a mill that was an American owned mill and now we send our washed high quality wool to a mill in Massachusetts. We are very pleased to be working with this mill. The blankets are extremely well made, and with proper care, should last for generations.
Our blankets are custom spun for us on antique looms. We use only natural colored wool that has been gently hand washed to remove the excess lanolin. No sulfuric acid has been used to dissolve vegetable matter (hay and straw). We simply pick the best parts of the wool for our blankets.
You can machine or hand wash these blankets. Personally, I prefer to machine wash them in a top loading washer. I use cold water wash, cold water rinse on the Delicate Cycle. Line dry. Do not use your dryer to dry the blanket as it will shrink it. I've never washed one in a front loading washing machine so I don't know if it works for washing these blankets.
My preferred wool washing product is Kookaburra Wool Wash. It has tea tree oil in it which is a fungicide and miticide; great for those with allergies or asthma. Runner up is Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap. Available at Walmart, many pharmacies and in the pharmacy section of some grocery stores.
