A linen blanket creates a special microclimate during sleep. The product feels light, soft and airy, but not very lush. You can even feel the aroma of fresh herbs. Despite the small thickness, the product is warm enough, it warms well and keeps the optimum temperature.
What is a linen blanket?
The raw material is obtained from the stem of flax, a valuable crop. After harvesting, the plant is processed: soaked, dried, kneaded, ruffled and combed. As a result, thin fibers are obtained. The production process is quite time-consuming and costly.
Flax can be grayish in color from light to dark shade. The material resembles cotton, but it is 3-5 times stronger and not as elastic. Linen fiber is shiny, flexible and soft. For the manufacturing of blankets, linen is pressed by the needle-punched method. The material is completely eco-friendly and safe, since a minimum amount of pesticides is required to grow an unpretentious crop. Tintory blanket is considered a novelty in the textile market, but it has already earned the recognition of consumers and is considered elite.
