About The Wool

Our Wool

Foxford Woollen blankets are made from a variety
of different types of wool including lambswool,
merino, mohair and cashmere.

 

the lambswool and merino are sourced from sheep.
Merino is particular breed of sheep, mainly raised
in Australia and New Zealand for their very fine
soft wool.

 

Mohair and cashmere are sourced from goats.
Mohair is fine and fluffy in texture, coming from
the angora goat. Cashmere is very soft and
luxurious, coming from the kashmir goat.
