100% New Zealand Made

Shear Warmth the only fully  Traceable, New Zealand company manufacturing traditional, pure wool blankets  from farm to shop currently on the market.

Wool is Easy Care

All ShearWarmth blankets are pre-shrunk and easy to wash, however they will rarely need frequent washing like other materials and a simple airing will do wonders! If you ever need to wash them just follow the care instructions on the care label using the cotton wash bag supplied with the blanket, and your ShearWarmth blankets will come up clean and looking like new.
The blankets are available in three different colours, sized as bassinet, cot or large (2500x1500mm) and with a choice of satin edge or blanket stitch.The wool is 70% lambswool, 30% hogget’s wool (the second time the lambs are shorn). Lambswool gives softness and hogget’s wool gives strength to our blankets. Only metal free dyes are used, resulting in no chemical residue. Our wool is grown in Tokirima, scoured in Hastings at Whakatu Wool Scours, spun in Levin at Woolyarns and woven and dyed in Auckland at Interweave. As a mark of the authenticity of our blankets every blanket is supplied with its own “Birth Certificate”.

Why Wool?

Wool is New Zealand's most amazing fibre! It is eco-friendly, flame retardant, non-allergenic, breathable, sun-safe, durable, easy care, multi-climatic, naturally insulating, and most of all biologically natural and renewable! What else would you want in a blanket for your bed?

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Wool is durable. One wool fibre can be twisted 20,000 times without breaking (Cotton breaks after 300 times, silk 2,000 times, and rayon breaks after only 75 twists.)
  • Wool breathes, it absorbs and releases water vapour into the atmosphere, so it keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer.
  • Wool is flame retardant up to 300 degrees Centigrade and does not produce chemically toxic fumes in a fire.
  • Wool is natural and a renewable resource; it simply grows on sheep which produce a new fleece year after year.
  • Wool is bio-degradable, taking only a few years to decompose naturally. (But who on earth would ever want to throw their beautiful blanket away.)
