The Ultimate Gift
This is the perfect gift to give when you are completely stumped and just can't find something that they don't already have! These blankets are hard to find, as only about 325 are made each year. A project developed by The Connecticut Sheep Breeders Association Inc, the blankets are made from wool pooled together from small sheep farms throughout the state. The project begins in June with wool collection & skirting days, and ends with distribution to participating members in December. One of the great things about the blanket is that the entire project is grown in CT and produced entirely in the USA. Talk about value!

You can dry clean your wool blanket or wash at home following these simple instructions: Fill your top loading washing machine with lukewarm water and mild detergent (Woolite is good). Push the blanket into the water and let soak for about 20 minutes - DO NOT AGITATE THE WATER AS THIS WILL RUIN YOUR BLANKET - Drain and spin the blanket in the machine, them remove the blanket. Fill the washer with clear lukewarm water WHICH IS EXACTLY THE SAME TEMPERATURE AS THE WATER YOU USED TO WASH THE BLANKET. Push the blanket back in, and let soak for another 10 minutes. Drain and spin. Remove the blanket and air dry - DO NOT PUT THE BLANKET IN THE DRYER.
Why you cannot use a frontloading machine Wool felts when it is wet and rubbed together. Agitating the water in a top loader or washing in a front loading machine will cause the wool to felt and will destroy your blanket.
Why the wash water and rinse water has to be the same temperature. Changing the temperature of the water is another way to felt your blanket.
We recommend dry cleaning for the larger blankets. Washing is better for the baby and throw sizes. Many people do not wash their blankets as they prefer to put one sheet under the blanket and another sheet over the blanket on their beds which will keep the blankets clean. The blankets are aired by hanging them on a line outdoors each spring.
