Our shawls are hand-knitted of yarn which was spinned of down from goats. The
shawls are very thin and light, that is why they are called pautinka
(cobweb). For centuries goat down was known as “soft gold”. It is a well deserved nick name because no other fiber is so soft, delicate, light and warm at the same time. It is a natural warmth. Goat down is naturally mold and mildew
resistant because it is natural wicking fiber. The fibers actually
allow moisture to pass through without retaining any of the moisture in
the goat down itself. Goat down contains high quantities of lanolin. It is a product of the oil glands of sheep or goat, extracted from their wool. Lanolin is as an emollient in many skin care products and cosmetics and in medicines. In the old days in villages, grannies used to wrap premature babies in goat down shawls to help their health.
Babies wrapped in a down shawl are calm and content babies.
Goat down fiber keeps a pocket of air close to baby’s body. The fibers
naturally wick excess heat and moisture from the skin and create an optimal temperature zone for a good night's sleep. In addition the natural lanolin in the down neutralizes odors.
