Fur, wool, feathers or cotton have no warmth in themselves. No matter how heavy his fur or feathers, any animal would freeze if it were not for the way Nature weaves the blanket which covers him. Tiny air cells between the fibres retain the air which keeps out the cold and keeps the blood heat in. That's the priciple used to give Nashua Woolnap Blankets their soft warmth.
