Shepherd’s Lamb wool blankets are amazing. They are incredibly warm without being too heavy or bulky. And the fact that they are made with wool from locally raised sheep means I am participating in and contributing to an important tradition of ranching in northern New Mexico. 

I have given these wool blankets as gifts to family members as far away as upstate New York, Boulder Colorado, and southern Florida. At a time when much of what we buy comes shipped from overseas, shrink-wrapped in plastic, Shepherd’s Lamb wool blankets are a wholesome and tangible alternative to that trend.

For centuries, sheep have shared their fleeces with people around the world and helped them endure harsh weather conditions. At Shepherd's Lamb, our flock of wonderfully generous ewes continue to provide not only for their own comfort, but yours as well.

All of the wool used to make our Classic Wool Blankets comes from the flock pictured here. Read on to learn more about the blankets and discover some of the magical qualities of wool!


about our blankets

Outstandingly Soft and pliable

In addition to its natural softness and non-allergenic properties, wool retains its composition for longer than synthetic fibers. While polyester fill compresses over time, wool continually springs back into shape, retaining up to 95% of its thickness throughout decades of use.

Durable

Wool can last 20+ years, making it a superb investment. No need for expensive dry-cleaning, either – wool's naturally resilient fibers can be washed easily in the comfort of your home throughout years of use. When it's finally time to retire your blanket, you can rest easy knowing that wool is 100% biodegradable.

TEMPERATURE-REGULATING

Wool absorbs moisture, keeping a dry layer of air next to your skin that helps hold in body heat. Because it has a porous fiber core, when you air your blanket it releases moisture, refreshing it over and over again.

AMERICAN-MADE

From the northern New Mexico mountains where our sheep reside to the small New England mills where the wool is spun and woven, we are proud that our blankets are 100% Made in America.

Colors

Our blankets come in three classic colors: Grey, White, and Blue. While the White and Blue blankets are solid colors, the Grey blankets have faint herringbone stripes in yellow, red, and blue. The color of the thread on the edge of the blankets varies. If you would like a specific trim color, please inquire for availability when you order as our stock fluctuates throughout the year.

The white blankets are made from natural, undyed white wool. The gray and blue blankets are dyed exclusively with low-impact, Fibre-reactive dyes. These dyes do not contain toxic chemicals nor mordants, are highly colorfast, and are classified as eco-friendly by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, an international certification process.
