Pure & Simple Wool Blanket - featuring the Pathfinder LOGO

The long-standing tradition of wool processing at Faribault Woolen Mill is alive and well in our cherished carmel Pure & Simple wool blanket. While we take pride in the interesting patterns we create, we know nothing is more elegant than stunning colors and softness on a wool blanket.

We use a medium grade blend of wool for this “workhorse”, which makes it surprisingly soft but easy to use. It is machine washable and dryer ready, so you can get back to using it the way you want.

  • 100% wool (Medium Grade Blend)
  • Machine washable
  • Approx Weight: 6.2 lbs
  • Color: Green
  • Size: 90" x 96" - MADE IN USA

 What's So Great About Wool?

WOOL IS WATER RESISTANT.

The quality that distinguishes wool fibers from hair or fur is the presence of a hard, water-repellent outer layer that surrounds each hollow fiber, overlapping like shingles on a roof. The fiber's core absorbs up to 30% of its weight in moisture vapor without becoming damp or clammy, while the hard outer layer protects against outside liquid moisture. Water is repelled, but humidity is absorbed, and that helps with thermal regulation.

WOOL IS MOISTURE WICKING.

Besides keeping outside moisture away from the skin, wool also wicks away perspiration. When you sweat, that sweat cools your skin-which is not what you want when it's cold outside. Wool fibers absorb perspiration and wick it away from your body, thus keeping you warm and dry.

WOOL IS A WONDERFUL INSULATOR.

The crimp of the wool produces insulating air spaces that retain body heat. These warm air pockets next to the skin are kept dry while the hollow wool fibers absorb moisture vapors and the hard outer surface moves liquid moisture away from the body.

WOOL REGULATES TEMPERATURE AND IS BREATHABLE.

Wool has a very wide comfort range, essential for adapting to changing weather conditions. This unique property makes wool the perfect fiber to be used in the production of outerwear, because it has the versatile ability to warm in colder conditions and cool in warmer conditions.

WOOL BLENDS WELL.

Wool can be blended with many different natural and synthetic fibers to create a multitude of fabric options.

Quality

by Mr Travis -

Works well and is well constructed. This is a quality product that short of being abused is going to last. It's not prickly against bare skin. It's very warm but full disclosure I live in Queensland so cold to me is 15 odd degrees
<br>
<br>It does take up quite a bit of room in a bag and does weigh a bit but then you'd have to weigh that against the durability which I fully expect to be excellent.
<br>
<br>I have rigged it up as a cloak (sourced a cloak pin to do it) and it worked well.
<br>
<br>It's a bit spendy but quality costs. Buy cheap buy twice
<br>
<br>Would I buy it again? Definitely
