The well-known "Mantas Maragatas del Val" since time immemorial are blankets made of Pure Virgin Wool, with artisanal and traditional manufacture.

Textile crafts in Val de San Lorenzo in León has a long tradition. In the middle of the 18th century there were eighty-one cloth manufacturers in the town. Since the 17th century we have documentation about merchants who came to buy cloth in the Val, and without a doubt the blankets and covers created by the Maragato artisans in this town were the most prestigious among the entire society of the time. The main characteristic of these fabrics is the impressive degree of insulation of the sheep's wool (the only "hollow" fiber that exists), through a traditional process of obtaining and carding, thousands of natural "air chambers" are achieved to insulate the cold.

Obtaining the colors, also based on natural dyes, makes the Val blankets even more characteristic, as well as the Maragata legend "Long live my owner" with which the merchants traveled in their carts, touring Spain, sheltering themselves with the blankets of the Val. Val de San Lorenzo.

The wool is 100% pure sheep, and the manufacturing processes create a light fabric that retains heat, while being perfectly breathable.
