Wool Blankets Stay Dry

Wool blankets are a great choice for staying warm while camping because they tend to stay dry and if they happen to get damp, they'll dry off quickly.

Camping often means being outdoors. This can include light rain, heavy rain, and even snow. Sometimes you want to have a family night out in the backyard with a tent. No matter what environment, wool blankets are reliable and cozy.

Wool blankets contain a natural fiber and it has the unique property of being able to retain heat even when wet. This means you don't have to head back and doors even when the weather takes a turn.

Wool Blankets Are Fire-Resistant 

Fire safety is one of the most important things to keep in mind while camping. This is just as true if you're roughing it in the deep woods or in the backyard. You want to know how to stay safe when dealing with fire.

Wool blankets give you a natural advantage when it comes to fire safety. Wool does not burn the same way that synthetic fibers or cotton does. A wool blanket will smolder and smoke rather than igniting. 

Wool is great for staying warm, but it’s also great for fire safety! 

Wool Blankets Are Eco-Friendly

Wool blankets are unique since they're made from renewable resources.

If you love camping, you love spending time in nature. Part of being outdoors is taken care of from the natural environment and this includes the gear that we take camping with us. 

Getting a wool blanket is a great way to stay warm and cozy while being sustainable.

Wool Blankets Are Versatile 

Another important fact is that wool blankets are also extremely versatile. It's one of the most important tools that you can take camping with you.

Your wool blanket’s main job is going to be keeping you warm, but that's not all it can do. Wool blankets are incredibly resilient which means they're great for throwing down as a picnic blanket or just as a dry place to sit.

Wool blankets are also useful for creating a makeshift shelter even if you just need to get out of the rain while hiking.

Wool Blankets Are Easy to Clean 

Wool blankets are also surprisingly easy to clean. You might not agree right away, but these blankets can be washed like any other bedspread. 

You don't need to buy any specialty cleaners or go out of your way to clean a wool blanket. All you need to do is machine wash it on gentle with cold water. You can then easily ring dry wool blankets since they naturally dry quickly on their own. This will prevent any pilling while keeping your blanket clean for your next camping trip. 

Always Bring A Wool Blanket Camping

You shouldn't consider anything else besides a wool blanket next time you plan an outdoor adventure. Wool blankets are warm, stand up to the elements, and are naturally fire resistant.

We recommend Walden Backyard's Fireside Wool Blanket with a leather carrying strap for camping trips. It's convenient to strap onto your backpack and features all the same benefits described above.
