Anyone looking into getting a luxury wool blanket should know about the famous Merino wool blankets. There’s a reason why this blanket is used all over the world in fine hotels, resorts and spas where people expect the best in their bedding. The Merino sheep that originated out of Australia have dense, long, luxurious wool. The length of their wool can be compared in a way to Egyptian cotton threads-the longer the fiber you start with, the softer, stronger and more luxurious your finished Merino wool blanket will be.
