The blankets are made in the European Union from fine local wool .
In order to make sure of the quality of the blankets, they have been submitted for examination. The blankets were tested by ÉMI-TÜV SÜD’s laboratory (registration number NAH-1-1351-2015) and qualified as 1st class product. The blankets are made of 100% wool.
The yarn were colored in accordance with the REACH regulation and therefore they are FREE from any hazardous materials like Azo dyes. The blankets meet the OEKO-TEX® requirements as well. They have been tested for harmful substances and are safe from a human-ecological perspective.
Most of the wool is originating from the sheep of the Czech Republic. The fleece comes from organic farms where the sheep live in free pastures and sheared once a year. The raw materials is then selected very carefully for the weaving of blankets.
The GOTS is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria.

Decorative pillow inserts
The decorative pillow inserts are made of cotton canvas filled with siliconized polyester fiber balls.
Siliconized polyester filler is a type of batting or filler created from synthetic fiber that is treated with a silicate material. This silicate material stiffens the polyester fibers, making them more resistant to bacteria and the accumulation of dust.
The fibers help dry up the cell of the dust or bacteria as it comes in contact with the filling. Siliconized polyester filling has properties that prevent the attachment of dust mites and bacteria, therefore it is considered anti-microbial and hypoallergenic. Polyester filling resists molds and mildews and holds its shape better than cotton filler.
