Extra large, extra fluffy, extra soft: this plaid is wonderfully cosy and made from an exclusive blend of materials: fine cashmere and pure new wool. The interplay of the two natural fibres results in a product that is both extra fluffy and robust. The timeless herringbone weave adds a little pattern and the light, thick twist fringes provide a pretty contrast. The material blend creates a great, cuddly feel that you also like to feel on your skin. Whether as decoration, a gentle warmer or simply to snuggle up with - with its timeless colour variations and XL size (150 x 215 cm), the plaid is a great companion for many situations in life. The classic colours can be combined in many ways. Fine lambswool and precious cashmere are used in this article. The wool fibres used come from Australia and South America and are spun and dyed in Europe. The cashmere yarn used is processed in Italy, the fibres originally come from China, where most cashmere goats live. Recycled material is also used for cashmere, as leftovers from yarn production are processed here. Production takes place exclusively in Germany and only renewable raw materials are used. In terms of material and design, the plaid is made to last and can be used for many years if cared for properly.
Cashmere herringbone plaid
Material: 50% cashmere / 50% virgin wool
Care: air from time to time, i.e. hang outside for about a day or in rooms that are not too dry and allow to "breathe"; shake out coarse dirt and brush lightly. For more serious soiling, we recommend gentle dry cleaning according to the care label.
Natural air conditioning: Products made of wool warm and breathe at the same time. The structure of the fibres in the heavily crimped wool creates many small and tiny air pockets. They store an enormous amount of air and create a pleasantly warm feeling of security when you are snuggled up tightly in a blanket or scarf. But the effect also works in reverse: just as body heat can be stored, so can cold! But this temperature barrier is permeable. A constant exchange of air is possible - nobody starts sweating unintentionally. This is also supported by the ability to store moisture in vapour form and to conduct it away from the body. This creates a healthy, dry warming effect. Natural fibres made from animal hair can store significantly more moisture than other materials (synthetics 4%, cotton 15%, bed feathers 12%) at one third of their own weight without feeling wet. In contrast, moisture in drop form, such as rain, is repelled. Natural fibres warm and insulate - a perfect air conditioner.
Crease resistance: Basically, every fibre creases under the influence of pressure, moisture and heat. However, products made of natural fibres have a naturally high crease resistance and recover quickly from the above-mentioned effects. Especially the fibre structure of wool, more precisely its spiral crimp, causes the fibre to always return to its original state. Therefore, wrinkles disappear quickly by vigorous shaking out and smoothing. This process is further supported by moisture, e.g. an overnight air bath: it is best to hang it up in a slightly damp room or outside and possibly brush it well the next day - the wrinkles have disappeared.
Safety: Everyone can feel safe in a woollen blanket from hülsta. Animal fibres such as virgin wool or cashmere are naturally flame retardant. Fireplace embers or tobacco sparks rarely cause any damage. Even if the blankets are exposed to a flame for a longer period of time, they hardly start to burn and do not melt. Thus, the temperature for self-ignition of wool is also significantly higher than that of synthetics.
