Gotland wool plaids and blankets

The soft wool for our plaids and blankets comes from the Gotland sheep from Scandinavia. The Gotland sheep is an old Swedish sheep breed from the island of Gotland. It's very special because the wool has a beautiful shine and luxurious appearance and feels nice and soft. The sheep are sheared twice a year to prevent the wool from felting. It is a beautiful quality wool that we use in the natural pure undyed colors for our plaids & blankets. This gives a nice rustic look in your home.

The Nordic touch
According to tradition, the Gotland sheep was created by mixing different sheep breeds that the Vikings used to take back on their raids around 800 AD until 1066. For example, there are characteristics of the Swedish Gute Fårschaap, the Leicester sheep from Great Britain and the Karakoel from central Asia, resulting in a strong sheep known for its liveliness and intelligence. An elegant sheep that, when it has just been shorn, looks a bit like a doe. The wool is strongly curled and soft with naturally blended gray and brown colors in many variations. Gotland sheep wool By Mölle plaids and blanketsWool is a unique natural product with insulating properties thanks to the special molecular structure of the fibers.
