Therefore it is no surprise to us that the original Swiss Army blanket is one of the most durable blankets customers can find on the market. You can use it in a variety of ways – it could be your faithful companion on camping trips, boat rides, hiking trips, or long nights by the cabin fire.
A brief history of the original Swiss Army blanket
The production of Swiss Army blankets started at the end of the 19th century and lasted until the early sixties. Their home was in caves in the Swiss Alps, which served as military depots. The original Swiss Army blankets were handmade from pure sheep’s wool with makers’ initials signature. To this day, the Swiss Army has been using these blankets in civil defense facilities, in natural disasters, and as protection for military horses. They are durable even in the uncertain Swiss mountain environment, which is why they have started production again!
The Swiss Army blanket – 75% wool and 25% other fibers
The re-creation of these beautiful blankets started by using the original specifications – 75% of sheep wool from the Swiss Alps. Each wool fiber is a molecular coil-spring, which makes it remarkably elastic. Due to the natural elasticity of wool, the blanket is flexible and resistant to tearing. Since wool is a natural temperature regulator, you will be able to use it comfortably in all seasons. Furthermore, the blanket protects your body in both cold and warm conditions while keeping a layer of air next to your skin.
Use Swiss Army Blanket inside and outside
Keep it in your car, boat, or cabin. You can easily use it indoors or out, as a bedspread, seat cover, or a warm cover for your dog. The structure of the blanket is wool; as a result, it is highly absorbent. Therefore you can lay it down even on a moist forest ground and relax in nature.
A valid symbol of original Swiss quality
Swiss army blankets are 100% made in Switzerland. Besides, every blanket has a red band on each side with the recognizable Swiss cross in the middle. The soft and seamless craftsmanship will thrill you. However, because of wool, you should never machine wash your blanket, only dry clean.
