Since I love wool, I was ecstatic to be sent the Pure-Rest™ Organic Wool Baby Blanket from Naturally Good. This blanket is made from o-wool, which is 100% certified organic merino soft wool grown and produced without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemicals.
Did you know that most people are NOT allergic to wool? They are actually having a painful response to the course prickly fibers. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. Why are wool fibers so course? It's because of the carbonizing required to remove excess vegetable matter from the wool. It makes the wool fibers weak and then they split, becoming prickly. Also the shorter the fibers are, the better the chance of prickle because there are more fiber ends per unit of fabric. The wool used in our products does NOT go through the carbonizing process. Only wool that is free from prickly vegetable matter is used so that no carbonizing is required. The fibers used in our products are never short! This results in a much softer wool that does not cause prickle.

Super soft and plush. Our organic wool will not itch since we do not treat it with pesticides. Keeps baby warm in winter and cool in summer by maintaining external body temperature year round. Machine wash delicate, hang dry indoors.
Wool is incredibly warm in winter and cool in the summer as it has the ability to breathe with the skin. Wool has the ability to wick away excess moisture. It can actually absorb up to 30% of its weight in water without feeling clammy or wet to touch. It can then release this moisture into the atmosphere to keep the wearer feeling warm and dry.
