We all know how wool is the best material when it comes to making blankets, but what does science have to say about this?

We’ve just found out that people who sleep with wool bedding for even one night have a lower heart rate, less sleep disturbance, and an increased duration of beneficial REM sleep. Wool is naturally resistant to mold and mildew and won’t develop any bare spots from wear. Wool also helps you stay warm in winter yet still keeps you cool during those hot summer nights.

Let’s now look at the best wool blankets.

The Benefits Of Wool

How To Care For A Wool Blanket

Lay the blanket flat on the floor and brush along its grain to remove any surface soil or stain, then smooths out its fibers with some gentle brushing up against them in different directions.

Survival Uses For Wool Blankets

It’s story-time.

Johnny was hiking alone on a day trip when he took a wrong turn. He soon realized that he wouldn’t be able to find his way back to the trailhead before dark, and so he set up camp for the night. With nothing but the blanket from his pack, he wrapped himself inside to stay warm.

When you go on a trip into the great outdoors, you should always pack along essential supplies. A wool blanket can be a useful piece of this kit.

You can use a wool blanket as a sleeping bag as Johnny did, or on its own, spread out on the ground as a thin layer of protection should you find yourself outdoors in harsh weather.
