The Product:

Made in the beautiful, mountainous, pine tree-filled region of Central Mexico, Mexchic's virgin wool blankets are warm, lightweight, and made of the highest quality, softest wool, supplied by local sheep herders.  The sheep are herded in the open mountain ranges, in the traditional manner with shepherd dogs, and walk long distances every day.  The wool remains undyed and untreated, and offers beautiful neutral hues of cream, grey, and light taupe that compliment the subtle yet modern designs.  Any slight imperfections you might come across in the blankets are due to the delicate hand-processing of the wool.  

These blankets are used in Mexico traditionally as a 'sarape' or shawl in the colder mountainous regions and is also a traditional garment used by 'vaqueros' or cowboys to shield them from the cold when riding at night.

Made of 100 % virgin, all natural, unprocessed, Mexican wool
