Which blan­ket is bet­ter — sheep or camel? It is very dif­fi­cult to answer this ques­tion unam­bigu­ous­ly. Feel­ings that arise when using each of the options can vary sig­nif­i­cant­ly. There­fore, it is worth lis­ten­ing to your own body, which will def­i­nite­ly tell you the right choice. How­ev­er, imme­di­ate­ly before buy­ing, it is worth­while to prop­er­ly under­stand what these bed­dings are, how to care for them and how durable they are with prop­er use. This will help you decide on the pur­chase with­out first “test­ing” the prod­uct.

What are the blankets?

Today, the mar­ket active­ly offers a wide vari­ety of mod­els of blan­kets and blan­kets. They can be made from both nat­ur­al fibers and syn­thet­ic fibers. The most com­mon non-nat­ur­al options are fleece (with a den­si­ty of more than 240 g / sq. M.), As well as var­i­ous heaters — from the usu­al syn­thet­ic win­ter­iz­er to more mod­ern holofiber and arti­fi­cial swan down.

The list of pop­u­lar nat­ur­al mate­ri­als includes:

  • Sheep­’s wool. It can be used both in nee­dle-punched tech­nique, when clean, dyed combed wool is lit­er­al­ly dri­ven into a dense base with many thin nee­dles, and as a filler for quilt­ed prod­ucts. Weav­ing is wide­ly prac­ticed, which gives a denser struc­ture, so the blan­ket holds its shape bet­ter and does not wear out for a long time.
  • Camel’s wool. Anoth­er pop­u­lar option for insu­la­tion. Its prop­er­ties make it pos­si­ble to obtain light, warm, envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly and safe prod­ucts. Most often, wool is laid between lay­ers of dense fab­ric and stitched with a pre-select­ed pat­tern. Blan­kets quilt­ed in this way are ide­al for those who are used to sleep­ing cov­ered, even in the warm sea­son. They per­fect­ly keep the tem­per­a­ture, allow­ing the body to breathe.
  • The most expen­sive and rare option is yak wool. Due to the lim­it­ed habi­tat of these ani­mals, such blan­kets can be quite expen­sive. They are per­formed main­ly in the tech­nique of hand weav­ing and have unique anti­sep­tic and heal­ing prop­er­ties.
  • Blan­kets made of bam­boo fiber are light, mod­er­ate­ly warm, easy to care for and inex­pen­sive mod­els. This mate­r­i­al, thanks to its struc­ture, nev­er gets lost inside the case.

The benefits of wool

As men­tioned above, nat­ur­al wool blan­kets are con­sid­ered the most com­mon options for cre­at­ing com­fort dur­ing sleep. The choice here is small, how­ev­er, even sheep wool can dif­fer sig­nif­i­cant­ly in prop­er­ties and com­po­si­tion. It all depends on the breed of ani­mals, their age, the method of pro­cess­ing the mate­r­i­al and even the time of the hair­cut. You can buy a blan­ket made of sheep wool not only in spe­cial­ized stores, but also via the Inter­net.

The gen­er­al ben­e­fits of wool include:

  • High hygro­scop­ic­i­ty, the mate­r­i­al absorbs mois­ture well, while main­tain­ing heat-insu­lat­ing prop­er­ties.
  • Bac­te­ri­ci­dal — high con­tent of lano­lin elim­i­nates the appear­ance of pathogens in the mate­r­i­al. How­ev­er, over time, the con­tent of lano­lin decreas­es, so the prod­uct must be reg­u­lar­ly aired, shak­en, and dried.
  • Excep­tion­al ther­mal prop­er­ties that allow you to main­tain the most com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture inside, regard­less of exter­nal con­di­tions.

If you want to buy a blan­ket — camel wool or sheep wool is bet­ter, it’s up to you.

Wool texture

If we com­pare the struc­ture of sheep and camel wool, then the first one has a high den­si­ty, is cov­ered with small scales and is high­ly crimped. This allows the woolen fab­ric to retain vol­ume and low ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty. In addi­tion, the scaly coat­ing of the hair pro­vides a reli­able grip with the drag, which is impor­tant when cre­at­ing felt prod­ucts. As for the sec­ond, it is incred­i­bly light due to the hol­low struc­ture of the hair. This pro­vides the low­est ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty, which is sec­ond only to that of lla­ma wool, the most expen­sive mate­r­i­al of this type.

For the man­u­fac­ture of high-qual­i­ty blan­kets, as a rule, camel down is used — under­coat. It is very hygro­scop­ic and, due to its elas­tic­i­ty, “breathes” excel­lent­ly.

Despite the dif­fer­ences, both a camel and a sheep blan­ket will be a great pur­chase and will keep you warm in any weath­er. You can buy a blan­ket made of high qual­i­ty camel wool in the Dream­catch­er online store.
