Falu Rödfärg’s blankets and cushions are double-woven on Jacquard looms using two-ply wool warp. The fibre density and choice of wool ensures excellent quality. The weft of the woollen yarn is 14-16 picks per cm. This can be compared with standard plaids which have approximately 5 picks per cm. It is this density – the number of picks per cm – that makes all the difference to the quality of the fabric.
The wool used in our blankets and cushions comes from sheep that graze outdoors all year round in rugged weather conditions. These sheep develop thick guard hairs, the fibres of which have excellent insulation and heat-retention properties.
After weaving, our blankets and cushions are washed and napped before being dried flat. The textile is then steamed to make it as fluffy, soft and warm as possible. Finally, the products are edged by hand and the brand label is sewn on.
