DESCRIPTION

What?
The pillow / blanket was designed for Ecolã, a brand from Manteigas that makes products with ecological and sustainable wool. The cushion is comfortable and decorative and saves another feature: inside, there is another pillow and a blanket. Furthermore, what initially serves as a storage compartment for the pillow and blanket, also serves to place the feet when the blanket is stretched, so that no part of the body is cold!

How?
The pillow / blanket consists of 100% wool and "burel" (wool with a specific mechanical treatment). The wool does not suffer from exposure to herbicides and fertilizers and it's washed ​​with spring water abstracted at 1400m altitude, which has not been subjected to any kind of pollution. This purity and freshness allow the washing of the wool without the use of chemicals. The pillow / blanket may be composed of natural colors or others, obtained by dyeing the fibers with natural pigments from plants.
