BACKWOODS WOOL BLANKETS | timeless patterned blankets that will give you another reason to love plaid.
HEAVY AND WARM - The Arcturus wool blanket weighs 4.5 lbs, with a density of 550 GSM (that means nice and thick). This blanket will keep you warm, period.
GREAT LOOKING, LONG LASTING - Loom-woven and hemmed on all sides with contrast lock stitching, our blanket looks right at home in the field or on your couch, while standing up to rugged use and abuse.
PLENTY OF ROOM FOR ALL - Large size (64" x 88") size will keep you and a friend cozy while camping, at a tailgate, football game, or an outdoor concert, or just as an emergency blanket in your vehicle.
80% WOOL - Wool is a time-tested natural fabric that will keep you warm, even when wet. The remainder of the blanket is composed of 20% hypoallergenic synthetic fibers for durability and washability. Wool is a naturally fire-retardant material. The blanket itself is not treated with any additional flame-retardant chemicals, making it safe for you and your family.
To keep shedding to an absolute minimum. we recommend hand washing your blanket in cold water. You may also machine wash your blanket separately in cold water on a delicate cycle. However, to maximize the life of your blanket (and to avoid unnecessary shedding), we recommend washing your blanket by hand.
To extend the life of your blanket, we also recommend line drying. Dryers are hard on clothes and blankets alike, and line drying is much gentler.
I was looking for a nice wool blanket. While not completely wool, this blanket is also not out of my price range like 100% pure wool blankets are. It's nice and large, warm, and colorful. I haven't noticed any smell whatsoever. It is a fairly heavy blanket; I bought the largest size so I could fold it over for double thickness and warmth and it certainly is. I'm considering buying another one!
I just love wool blankets but hate paying triple digits for one. Most of them are way out of my price range, but then I ran across this brand and bought the Buffalo Plaid blanket and have been using it for about seven months, inside and out. Works well.
In reaction to comments seen elsewhere: It does have a bit of a distinctive smell, but I don't find it strong or offensive. The smell remained even after a wash and multiple hangs on the clothes line. It did pill up just ever so slightly at first but has not gotten any worse. Again, this is not a problem for me.
My only wish is that they made one of a slightly heavier weight. Six pounds?
Great blanket.i can see that lasting for a long time,comfy too.
Bought 4 blankets, all different colors, for sitting outside on cool Pacific Northwest evenings. These are perfect for that; big size for adults or sharing, nice and warm, thick and cozy.
Great quality. Exactly what I needed.
