Before central heating existed, wool was an excellent choice for loungewear. The 18th century gentleman would wear his wool robe at home, in his study or while welcoming guests. But even today, a wool robe is all you need to stay warm at home, and a celebration of finest craftsmanship. Discover our wide range of wool robe styles today.
Wool robes came in many different styles, featuring plaid patterns, frogging, tassels, quilting and more. You can find both bold dyed wool fabrics and checkered designs in darker shades. Colorful striped cord piping was very often used in wool robes, especially in the 1960s.
At Baturina Homewear, we draw inspiration from the past and even use our own striped cord piping, that we had custom made just for us. The navy and white striped piping adds an elegant contrast to the monochrome wool fabric. Our wool robes come in a variety of designs inspired by past decades, featuring contrast piping and quilting.

Wool and velvet are two heavy and warm fabrics, but their look and feel is the complete opposite. While velvet has a sumptuous plush texture and extremely dark colors, wool flannel has a rather matte surface and its colors are not as intense.
