The mountains of the Alcornocales and Grazalema, in Cadiz province in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, is one of the rainiest areas in Spain. Because of the abundant pastures in the area, a particular type of merino sheep is grown here, famous for the quality of its wool. This was the basis for an industry dedicated to wool fabrics, especially blankets, which became famous between XVII to XIX centuries. It is said that between Grazalema and Benamahoma, there were more than 9,000 people engaged in the manufacture of blankets and its auxiliary industries such as dyeing, spinning, raising, etc.

Today, in the small village of Grazalema, blankets are still made, and woolen fabrics, old-fashioned, and are still valued for their lightness, warmth and waterproofing.

The Grazalema Loden is one of the most characteristic and has been traditionally used for hunting related items, including backpacks and chaps, or supplements for horseback riding. This cloth comes in two natural colours, white and brown. No dye is used, since the white wool comes from white sheep, and brown wool from this colour sheep.

The thickness of cloth (1000 g) makes it a very durable fabric. It is also extremely warm, and also breathable. Because of the natural oil wool has, call lanolin, makes this fabric waterproof, causing water to flow over it.
