Deluxe wool blanket measuring 69″x62′, cozy, warm - a must for your home, cottage or travel
Using a mixture of both lambswool and merino wool makes a more luxuriously tartan wool blanket.
Spirit of Quebec tartan owes its inspiration to the provincial coat of arms, which in turn reflects the history of the province.
Named after the province of Quebec, the colours of the tartan reflects the blue and white of the Quebec flag. The coat of arms is depicted with yellow and green for the golden lion and the three green maple leaves. The three shades of blue represent the St. Lawrence River.

Caring for your Merino wool blanket :
Since wool is naturally repellent to dirt, most wool blankets do not need regular washing. Instead, wool blankets can be shaken and brushed.
Step 1: Shake It
Take your blanket outside and shake it hard a few times.
Step 2: Get Out the Dirt
Then bring it back inside and hang it up in an area where there is air flow to let more dirt fall out.
Step 3: Brush It
After a few hours, lay the blanket flat on the ground and brush it with a soft-bristle fabric brush. Make sure to brush down the length of the blanket so the bristles are all laying in the same direction. Brushing in multiple directions will damage the fibers.
The General Rule for all pure wool blankets is to always wash in cold water and gently wring or roll. Use a wool soap such as Eucalan. A hand wash or delicate wash cycle and low-action washer spin on modern appliances can produce a good result.
