Gotland wool whose unique quality is its long soft and shiny silver-grey curls. It is renewable, moisture-proof and flame-retardant. The wool is cut twice a year and spun in spinnery to achieve the right yarn quality. The color range of the products depends on the natural color of the wool. Whether anthracite (black) or grey as in domestic Gotland sheep or white as in Leicester, Swedish Finewool and Texel they are all from sheep grazing the pastures of both island and mainland. Apart from its quality, the final structure of the wool depends on aspects like available grazing and annual shifts in the weather. Unique variations like these as well as in yarn deliveries make the weight and dimensions of the products approximate. Variation in the blankets may be caused when cutting them into batches in preparation for machine weaving.
