What's So Great About Wool?
WOOL IS WATER RESISTANT.
The quality that distinguishes wool fibers from hair or fur is the presence of a hard, water-repellent outer layer that surrounds each hollow fiber, overlapping like shingles on a roof. The fiber's core absorbs up to 30% of its weight in moisture vapor without becoming damp or clammy, while the hard outer layer protects against outside liquid moisture. Water is repelled, but humidity is absorbed, and that helps with thermal regulation.
WOOL IS MOISTURE WICKING.
Besides keeping outside moisture away from the skin, wool also wicks away perspiration. When you sweat, that sweat cools your skin-which is not what you want when it's cold outside. Wool fibers absorb perspiration and wick it away from your body, thus keeping you warm and dry.
WOOL IS A WONDERFUL INSULATOR.
The crimp of the wool produces insulating air spaces that retain body heat. These warm air pockets next to the skin are kept dry while the hollow wool fibers absorb moisture vapors and the hard outer surface moves liquid moisture away from the body.
WOOL REGULATES TEMPERATURE AND IS BREATHABLE.
Wool has a very wide comfort range, essential for adapting to changing weather conditions. This unique property makes wool the perfect fiber to be used in the production of outerwear, because it has the versatile ability to warm in colder conditions and cool in warmer conditions.
WOOL BLENDS WELL.
Wool can be blended with many different natural and synthetic fibers to create a multitude of fabric options.

Bought 2 of these wool blankets and must say for the price they are very durable and should hold up for many years. However, if looking to use for winter camping , I would go with a 100% wool blanket. But for late spring, summer, early fall, then this might just work for you depending on how you handle the cold. Remember to test before submitting yourself to adverse conditions. Thanks to SRO for supplying reasonably priced gear for the common man.
Thin blanket which is woven tightly and it quite warm! It does smell when it arrives, reminded me of my grandfather's basement workshop. Cold wash on delicate, line dry returned it to just wool smell and softened it up. Not scratchy and always my favorite OD green color! Great value for a basic blanket.
I received it fast and was just what the boy needed. He wanted something to throw over him when he was in his stand and a lighter weight wool for spring and fall nights in the woods. God bless and thanks for all you do.
As the title says "simply awesome". I originally purchased two of these blankets. I've been using one around the house when just lounging. The other I stuffed inside my backpack. I currently have the one on my bed for a light cover for summer night sleeping. Definitely a comfortable blanket, surprising soft for being 70 % wool. I love this blanket so much I ordered two more which I recieved today. Dave, you and all those that make SRO happen please give a pat on the back and a handshake as a "thank you" for offered terrific products.
