Maragata Blanket - Ecru with Brown Lines
The textile industry in Val de San Lorenzo in León has a long tradition. In the middle of the 18th century there were 81 cloth manufacturers in the village. There are documents that show that since the 17th century merchants came to buy cloth in Val. The merchants travelled in their cars, touring Spain, keeping themselves warm with these cosy blankets from Val.
The main characteristic of these fabrics is the impressive degree of isolation that sheep wool has, (the only "hollow" fibre that exists), thanks to a traditional process of obtaining and combing it, they can get thousands of natural "air chambers" which can insulate the cold.
The colours and natural colour tints make these blankets even more typical of the blankets from Val! The wool is 100% pure sheep wool, and by using special manufacturing techniques, a warm and breathable lightweight material is created!
