Merino wool blanket handwoven in loom.
Merino wool and cotton baby blanket hand-woven on a loom.
These blankets are very soft and cute. We have knitted them with natural merino wool on a soft mercerized cotton, so that the babies are warm and warm. They are very warm, while being breathable and comfortable at the same time.
They are blankets that you can use in the crib, carrycot and because of its size, a little larger than usual, you can also use it as an extra coat on the first bed. They match many styles of children's room décor.
The fabric is of high density and has a great heat capacity.
We have woven these blankets by hand with an elaborate twill variant technique, to create a textured, soft, striking and different fabric. It has no fringes, we have finished the four edges with a cotton ribbon, machine sewn with a decorative stitch, so that it is more comfortable to wear and has a better finish.
Wool is a fibre obtained from sheep's hair. There are different types of wool depending on the race of the sheep, the best quality being that of the Merino sheep. It is a very soft, flexible, breathable and warm wool that retains its colour very well.
Mercerized cotton is a fiber with a moderate shine and great resistance to wear, which is given by the mercerization treatment. It is a soft, flexible and durable fiber that allows a wide range of colors.
Fibers: 40% mercerized cotton, 60% merino wool.
Measurements: 112 cm x 117 cm.
Warp color / weft: White base woven in different colors.
Finishes: Machine overlocked the edges so that the fabric does not unravel. Hand tucked weft thread splices at the selvages. Machine-sewn ribbon on all four edges with decorative stitch. Hand washed and steam ironed for extra quality, softness and durability.
Washing: hand wash, with neutral detergent and cold water.
Laying: roll a towel around the clothesline holding it with two clips and hang the piece vertically so that it does not leave a mark and, if necessary, facilitates ironing.
Ironing: Ironing: it does not take special care, in general the temperature indicated by your iron for wool. Looks good without ironing.
Presented in a organic cotton bag to keep it always impeccable.
COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a manual wooden artisan loom, moved by our hands and feet, we weave it strand by strand, with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear or use in contact with your skin and we take care of all the details so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of high quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. It does not have knots in the warp (vertical threads) nor in the weft (horizontal threads). The weft splices are collected by hand in the selvedges with a needle, achieving a more complete and better quality finish.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing if it has it and take its final measurement, something essential for us, all the pieces woven on the artisan loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers are repositioned (This is only done in the first wash, then they do not shrink any more). And then we iron it by hand with steam so that once it is finished, you can appreciate all its qualities.
