FELT // BUREL
BUREL is the name of an ancestral Portuguese felt fabric made from the wool of a sheep native to Serra da Estrela. This sheep, the bordaleira, is white, beige or chestnut, has expressive eyes and horns in both sexes. Year after year, the sheep produce the wool that is withdrawn for its benefit. The wool has a natural elasticity and has been used since the Middle Ages by shepherds to make their cloaks. The authenticity of the burel results from a sequence of operations in its manufacture. The wool, after shearing, is washed, spun and woven on the loom. It is stepped on a machine that beats and scalds it, thus transforming it into a tight, resistant and water-resistant fabric. 100% wool, flexible and natural Agro-product, hygroscopic, anti-electrostatic, fire-resistant, abrasion-resistant, does not create wool balls on the surface...
...and is very pleasant to the touch.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Burel is a fabric of easy maintenance. The fibre structure repels dirt. We recommend vacuuming periodically to remove the dirt accumulated in the folds and seams and, if any stain appears, wipe with a damp cloth with water or a neutral cleaning product.
