Dimensions: Each blanket measures 180cm in length x 135cm in width. 70% Mohair 30% Wool. Wool should always be hand washed. Wool fibres have many scales/cuticle cells that protect the outer layer of the fibre, machine washing can destroy the textile’s softness. Gentle hand washing will help prevent pilling and maintain your wool textiles in the best condition.
Mohair is a fine lustrous fleece that comes from the hair of the Angora goat. Mohair is often referred to as the “diamond fibre,” as the wool is characterised by a distinct lustre and sheen. As with sheeps wool the diameter, micron, of the fibre increases with the age of the goat, and the thinner fibres from younger goats represent the finest mohair yarns. Mohair is considered one of the oldest fibres in the world, it originated in the mountains of Tibet, the original home of the Angora goat. It remains one of the most prized natural textiles.
