100% NATURAL NZ WOOL
Hunter Hills Woven Wool is home to a unique range of versatile wool products.
Our sheep are shorn twice a year in July and December. Each sheep yields approximately 2kgs of certified organic wool at every shear.
The wool is washed in Timaru, spun into yarn in Christchurch and returned to the farm ready for weaving.
CARING FOR YOUR WEAVE
Blankets and rugs will shed a few fibres initially but these are easily vacuumed and shedding ceases over time.
Airing and drying in the sun is the best way to keep your blankets and other woven wool products fresh.
Single blankets, throws, and rugs (1.9m x 1m sizes) may be washed inside a cotton bag in a washing machine set to the wool cycle. Make sure the cotton bag is tightly closed. After washing hang the throw on a clothesline to dry in the sun.
Larger queen and king blankets are unlikely to fit in a household washing machine, however just airing on the clothesline is a good way to freshen them up.
