The Särmä Blanket Shirt is a primitive low-tech super garment where the natural qualities of wool combined with simple and clever details make for a very functional outdoors jacket. These are made from military surplus wool blankets and other interesting materials!

The idea of the Blanket Shirt stems from ancient outdoor garments. Wool jackets with this basic form have been used from around the middle ages. In more recent times, these have gained popularity among traditionalists.

A bag of old tricks

The Särmä Blanket Shirt is a simple and functional garment that doesn't throw tried and true features away. These were good back in the day and not the least bit worse in the days to come. We didn't reinvent the wheel, just made our variation of it with practical features.

The chest pocket is large and positioned a bit higher up on the chest so as not to interfere with backpack hip belts or equipment belts worn over the shirt. Great for storage or warming your cold fingers. Inside the pocket is a smaller pocket, sewn onto the body side of the shirt. This little flat pocket is intended to store any important valuables such as mobile phones safely. Access slits on the sides to make rummaging through your trouser pockets or accessing equipment on your trouser belt easier.

The hood offers protection from wind and rain and keeps your head warm, an obvious necessity if there ever was one. The hem is way longer on the back, which will keep the crack of your arse covered in any squatting position, and it also offers protection from wet or cold surfaces when sitting. Unbemazing! From the end of 2020 onwards, the hood is less of a cultist model and more functional.

Raglan sleeves, these are an elegant solution! No seams anywhere on top of the shoulders, so there's no chafing when carrying backpacks. Mobility of the arms is better as well.

Materials and care

We used to make these for a long time under the Jämä brand from army surplus blankets and other materials we happened to find, hence the name. The availability couldn't keep up with the demand, so these are now made from purpose-sourced materials as the Särmä Blanket Shirt. The wool fabric is the same as we use on our Woolshell garments: 70% recycled wool, 30% recycled polyester, weight at least 400 g/m2, and made in Italy.

Airing out will do the garment good and this is basically the regular "cleaning" you'll do. What comes to more thorough cleaning, as the first option it's best to try just brushing off any stains or spot clean with water and mild soap. If you manage to get this dirty as hell and absolutely need to use a washing machine, try a gentle wool cycle at 30 degrees Celsius (86 F). Use wool care products while you're at it, it'll make the garment restore its natural woolly goody features. Hang dry, stretch the garment out a bit while it's drying.

Due to Circular Economy, you may find used Jämä Blanket Shirts available on this page from time to time. If you don't see any, we don't have them. If you do, act fast.

Size info

These come in three sizes with a loose fit. Each size has a recommended user height and chest circumference. Understand that the fit is not like a parade dress or in any other way or form a socially normative choice.

The main thing to consider is the chest circumference, as a too-small shirt will be difficult to don. The length is generous and if the sleeves overshoot your hands, just fold them for a tailored fit.

Hämmästyttävä vaate. Ollut toistaiseksi lähinnä kaupunki-käytössä, mutta vakuuttaa vahvasti. Alla t-paita, niin on pärjännyt juhannus säässä pienessä vesisateessakin. Eikä edes ison miehen päällä näytä mitenkään hullulta, kunhan ei laita huppua päähän. Jykevä materiaali (vihreä huopa), pitää tuulta ja pientä sadetta, kutittaa yllättävän vähän ihoa. Joskaan en ole villan kutittamiselle kovin herkkä. Tasku on yllättävän näppärä, vaikka sijoitus on hiukan epätavallinen. Iso plussa kännykkätaskusta.

Tällä käytöllä täydet 5/5, mutta tarkennan arvostelua, kunhan käyttöä tulee lisää. Varsinkin eräreissuista selviämisen testaaminen kiinnostaa ja saattaa vaikuttaa arvosanaan. Kunhan säät kylmenee. Mutta kyllä tästä tuli nopeasti luottovaate näillä sääolosuhteilla.

Edit joulukuu '17: nyt on vermettä aika paljon ulkoilutettu ja mielipide on entistä positiivisempi! Aivan täydellinen metsässä rämpimiseen. Alle tilanteen mukaan hengittäviä kerroksia ja reppuun anorakki, jos sää menee aivan onnettomaksi. Rämmin kolmatta tuntia peräkkäisiä hakkuualueita selkä märkänä, mutta pysähtyessä ei tuntunut ollenkaan pahalta, kiitos merinovillaisen aluskerraston ja villaisen päälikerraston. Toisella kurjan kostealla reissulla vedin alle peltipaidan lisäeristykseksi ja tauolla kuuskakkosen takin viimaa vastaan. Kesällä tuli muutama yökin nukuttua semisuojaisessa paikassa vain vetämällä huppu silmille ja kädet taskuun. Lintutornissa värjöttelyssä toimii myös mainiosti.

Itsenäisyyspäivän nurkilla tuulisessa pakkassäässä pääsi viima kutittelemaan helman alta, mutta huosujen vyön siirtäminen miehistövyöksi pussitti mukavasti alaosan ja taas tarkeni.

Mielessä on paljon pieniä lisäyksiä joita aion tehdä/teettää, kuten hihan kiristys pompan napeilla, kartta- tai hanskatasku selkäpuolelle, paracodista tehty lenkkikuja pikkusälälle, ja niin edelleen. Näin yksinkertaiseen vaatteeseen kun voi lisätä omaa näkemystään verrattain helposti.

In English: pretty much perfect outer layer for any strenuous activity that combines sweating with cold weather (e.g. Finland all year round). Warm and breathable, durable, not flammable and easily repaired. Highly recommend.

This is a perfect outer layer for any kind of outdoor activity. The pocket is a lot roomier than I originally thought.

Erinomainen kapistus. Ollut käytössä ihan kaupungilla hipsterivaatteena sekä puskapusakkana metsässä. Suojaa mukavasti säältä ja alle saa kerrastonkin. Loppupeleissä erittäin toimiva jokapaikan vaate.

I grabbed one of the older pattern H. R. Co. shirts and absolutely love it. It's been out on several hunting trips and is incredibly cozy in cool weather. The pocket is perfect for holding extra ammunition, packs of jerky, or a flask of your favourite warming beverage! The lengthened rear is great for preventing your ass from getting too dirty or cold when you need to take a seat in the woods. The fit is great, the colour pleasant, and the material comfy. I would recommend wearing a light layer underneath though (I wear a telnyashka), as the wool can get a little itchy and rough on certain pieces of skin.

Also huge unexpected bonus that it makes me look like an angry forest monk festooned with weaponry.

I have the Finnish wool , on the wool itchy scale I give it a solid 5. . I would say the fabric on mine was new when sewn , at least that’s how it appears to me. I ordered the XL and I’m 5’10 ,162 lbs of apathy , 40” chest. Fits perfect. This thing is WARM. I would say wear a silk weight under it as it’s a little itchy if you are sensitive to wool. I have room for another layer over the silk if need be, but I’m not sure I would need it until it got colder than my local environment. This thing has its own vibe , and it’s really cool. The transition from the hood to the garment is really well thought out as there isn’t much gaping going on, it’s not drafty. Only down side I can see is your peripheral is going to be zero when the hood is up, but if you are wearing this you are pretty much a wizard anyway. My wife thought I looked Hot with it on.. I was in fact hot.

Toivotaan että kestää koko loppuiän, varmaan joutuu haalimaan varalle yhden jos sattuu joku hyvä uusi sarka kohdalle.

Recently I wore the Finnish wool version in -27oC wind chill Canadian weather with a cotton shirt and a commercial fleece underneath. I was comfy. A better base layer and I should be set to -40o or colder. The deep front pocket is very handy, and I continue to be pleasantly surprised at how warm the hood is. I am being asked where I got my blanket shirt and I point folks to your web site. And FYI, flat rate shipping to Canada took seven days door-to-door. Great product, fair price, very good trans-Atlantic service.

If I could get my hands on some decent wool fabric at a ' soft ' price, I wouldn't mind making one myself...

Very interesting - any plans to make a version with a detachable hood and high collar - like your wool fleece jacket?
