comes to the factory directly from the mountain shepherds. It is
cleaned and mixed for color, and made into yarn. The yarn is then put
on the looms which have some electric assist, but every stage of the
weaving process is hands-on controlled by skilled weavers.
After weaving, the blankets are
"processed" by being put into mountain river-powered washing machines.
This processing pre-shrinks the blankets as well as making them
stronger and softer. This ancient method of "puffing up" the blankets
is only one of the special ways Lebarca blankets are entirely earth-
friendly and organic.
