This beautiful and warm blanket is made of Supersoft Lambswool yarn spun for us in Scotland. The Supersoft blanket feels soft against your horses skin and keeps your horse warm without being heavy to handle.
The Finnish Equestrian Company’s design is made to look exceptional on your horse. The blanket is hand finished with stunning elk leather edging. Nordic elk leather has a unique softness, durability and richness that makes it stand out among all other leathers.
Because of the excellent qualities of the wool it works in complete harmony with living creatures and doesn’t gather static electricity. Wool is a nurturing, natural, hollow fibre that breathes well allowing moisture to pass through its fibers. Therefore wool feels dry against the skin and smells fresh longer.
A product of the highest quality expected to last for years and years to come!
Each blanket has a unique running product number stamped on the logo plate attached to it.

WHY IS WOOL SO GOOD?
Compared to modern man-made fibers commonly used in blankets, the advantages of wool are clear. Woollen blankets are durable and have a lifespan far better than many man-made fibers can offer. Because wool is a natural fiber the blanket can be composted at the end of its long life cycle leaving no trace in the environment.
Care Instructions: Wool can be freshened up by airing and brushing. If for some reason you need to wash your blanket we recommend dry clean only. Store in dry place in room temperature.
ABOUT HORSE BLANKET NO:1
The yarn used is produced by a well-respected Scottish family business that has the reputation of stocking the world’s best lambswool qualities. They keep track of the wool as it leaves the back of the sheep up until the yarn is delivered to the mill, which guarantees the quality and transparency.
The blankets are then woven in a micro-mill in UK using traditional methods of weaving. The restrictions of the output allow exclusivity through artisanal weaving. The manufacturing facility is run by women entrepreneurs who are committed to fair working conditions and pay. They create ecological, sustainable and ethically responsible fabrics. We have chosen British manufacturers because of long traditions, profound expertise and machinery for weaving and finishing high quality blankets.
FECwool is manufactured and finished in a way that it requires less washing since it is dirt and moisture repellent. It also sustains wear better. Airing and brushing are affective ways of cleaning the woollen blanket. The traditional finishing method used is called milling. This means bettering the natural felting property of wool to give the fabric even more warmth.
