Waratah All-Natural 425gsm 100-percent Australian Tasmanian Merino Wool Full/Queen Size Blanket - Merino Wool is known as Natures Best Insulator and High Performance Fabric. The wool comes from the Merino Sheep of Australia who are regarded as having the finest and softest wool of any sheep in the world. Because Merino Wool fibers are smaller in diameter and more numerous than coarser wools, it makes Merino one of the softest, most durable and dense types of wool available. The Merino Wool Blanket is constructed at Waratah Woollen Mills Founded in 1874 in Tasmania Australia which is Australia's oldest textile mill, and still operating from its original site. The benefits of the Merino Wool blanket are that it has an amazing warmth-to-weight ratio making it a perfect temperature regulating blanket that will keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The super-fine Merino Wool fibers naturally absorb and wick moisture (sweat) away from the skin keeping you drier and more comfortable. Due to its uniquely thin fibers the Waffle Weave blanket does not retain odor. Waratah Woollen Mills rigorously avoids the use of chemicals in production of our wool blankets and we make sure that all of our products are manufactured from 100-percent all-natural components making an already perfect blanket healthy. This luxurious full/queen size blanket measures 90-inch by 94-inch and includes a 2-inch satin trim on top and bottom to give it a clean crisp edge. With 425gsm (grams per square meter) of 100-percent Tasmanian Merino wool you are sure to get a top of the line blanket that will provide you many years of use and luxury. Also makes an awesome couch snuggling blanket.
