The plaid cashmere is a wonderful doubleface plaid made of the finest cashmere and cozy wool. The two plain sides are created by a double weave and allow for many decoration possibilities. Of course, it is also great for cuddling. With its fine beige twist fringes, it creates an elegant look, quite befitting of such a timeless accessory. The soft, neutral hues emphasize sustainability and blend well with modern living environments. Fine lambswool and precious cashmere are used in this item. The wool fibers used come from Australia and South America and are spun and dyed in Europe. The cashmere yarn used is processed in Italy, the fibers originally come from China, where most cashmere goats live. Recycled material is also used for cashmere, as leftovers from yarn production are processed here. The production takes place exclusively in Germany and only renewable raw materials (virgin wool and cashmere) are used. The material and design of the plaid is designed for durability and can be used for many years with proper care.
Material: 60% cashmere / 40% virgin wool
Care: air it from time to time, i.e. hang it outside or in not too dry rooms for about one day and let it "breathe"; shake out coarse dirt and brush it out lightly. For larger 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. Due to the structure of the fibers in the heavily crimped wool, many small and tiny air pockets are created. 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. However, 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 vapor form and conduct it away from the body. This creates a healthy, dry warming effect. Natural fibers made of animal hair, with one third of their own weight, can store significantly more moisture without feeling wet than other materials (synthetics 4%, cotton 15%, bed feathers 12%). In contrast, moisture is repelled in droplets, such as rain. Natural fibers warm and insulate - a perfect air conditioner.
Wrinkle resistance: Basically, every fiber wrinkles under the influence of pressure, moisture and heat. However, products made of natural fibers have naturally high wrinkle resistance and recover quickly from the above-mentioned effects. Especially the fiber structure of wool, more precisely its spiral crimp, causes the fiber 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 wool blanket from hülsta. Animal fibers such as virgin wool or cashmere are naturally flame retardant. Fireplace embers or tobacco sparks rarely cause 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.
