Your high quality wool quilt will last for many years and will not lump or bunch as with regular wool quilts made with polyester resin, due to our unique, layered construction method.
The Demeter certified wool used in all Blessed Earth’ pillows quilts and toppers is from Cowobbee Pastoral Company, Oberon NSW. The superb, 400 thread count organic sateen outer covering is light and fine enough to resist wool "creep" through the fabric. We pay a premium of over 100% for the fact that these materials are certified organic. These are the finest wool bedding products in the world and they cannot be compared to cheap imports claiming to be made in Australia
Please Note: We do not recommend you wash your Organic wool quilts. Regular airing in sunshine is a great way to freshen up and sanitise your quilt. If you need to wash your quilt due to spills, etc. please contact us first so we can advise you.
A note about scouring: Scouring is the process by which wool is cleaned. The conventional process is to "carbonise" it using sulphuric acid, which dissolves all vegetable matter that might be contained in the wool. Obviously, we refuse to use that process and as a consequence there may be occasional impurities in the wool. which can show through the cover. Similarly, the covers on all our wool bedding products are unbleached organic cotton. Consequently there can be the occasional slight mark on the product which would normally be bleached out in a conventional product. Please regard these as beauty spots - further evidence of the purity of the product you are buying.
This product is proudly made in Australia.
Please note that the width measurements are to the middle of the quilt. The ends of the quilt may initially be slightly wider until the end binding softens with movement and allows the wool to conform to the correct size. We make thousands of these quilts on a fixed frame. They do not vary at all. Every now and then we receive a complaint that the quilt is too big for the quilt cover - sometimes even the Blessed Earth quilt cover. If you wish to check your quilt size, try lying it flat on the floor without any stretching and measure from middle to middle. if the measurement is within a few centimetres that is acceptable as the quilts will shrink slightly. Shrinkage will occur especially at the ends, which may bunch slightly inside the cover while the binding softens. The most common finding though is that the cover has shrunk. Any returns for supposed over-sizing must be at the customer's expense.
