Recycling wool is important because it’s too precious to throw in the bin. Wool is a natural fibre that is incredibly hard to replicate – it’s a renewable resource, it is odour and stain resistant, antibacterial, lightweight, breathable and insulating.

Made in Lithuania
Made from pre-consumer textiles waste from 16 mills around Europe. Offcuts are collected off the factory floor and sent to the mill we work with in Lithuania for processing. Here, the offcuts are shredded, combed out, spun into a new yarn, ready for weaving into blankets. The mill is almost a century old and is expert at weaving luxurious woollen blankets.
Established in 2016 by sisters Sam & Karina Seljak, Seljak Brand works to accelerate the transition to a more circular economy, engaging suppliers in Australia and Europe to weave recycled wool blankets that are recyclable at the end of their useful life.
This circular model diverts waste from landfill to create luxurious and useful blankets. Seljak Brand also participates in systems innovation, and educates and advocates for the circular economy and climate action.
After your blanket has enjoyed a long, adventurous life Seljak collect it free of charge using a carbon neutral courier service. If the blanket is still usable it's donated to the ASRC’s Material Aid program. If it's beyond usable its shredded and spun into new yarn to make future blankets.
Because this is a naturally antibacterial product, the easiest way to clean your blanket is to air it out by hanging it in the sun. Spot clean dirty marks and spills with lukewarm soapy water. If necessary, machine wash at maximum 30 degrees with a wool wash and hang dry. Reducing machine washing extends your blanket’s life and reduces energy and water consumption.
