Darla Designs Winter/Paddock combo’s have an ‘Extra Flap’ attached to the outside of the rug that lays over the Bellywrap Velcro once done up ensuring no water can slip in between the Bellywrap and Rug

Darla Designs Rugs are designed to have a shorter drop than most other rugs for number of reasons.... to stop the rug from bunching up at the elbow and lower belly area of your horse from where the Bellyband wraps around causing discomfort (and also the ‘boys to stop peeing on the rug). Another reason is to stop a ‘wind tunnel’ effect on the underneath or belly area of your horse causing them to feel colder underneath.

Darla Designs have also designed a ‘Gusset’ feature on each side of the Bellywrap to help with less bunching and more freedom of movement (and again help stop the boys from peeing on their rugs!)

There are generally three layers in any type of Doona Rug: the outer or top layer, the middle layer of batting or fill, and the fabric backing or lining of the Rug.

The middle layer is usually cotton or a polyester batting or ‘fill’ and is what determines the warmth of the Doona Rug. Batting (or fill) comes in different thicknesses depending on the purpose of the Doona. The purpose of any Doona Rug with fill is to trap air in the fibres creating a blanket effect or air pocket. Essentially the higher number in the batting/fill in gsm (grams per square meter) the bigger the surface area is to hold and create the ‘air pocket’ throughout the rug. Doona rugs are therefore not made to have other rugs or weight on top of this fill layer, any additional weight on the fill fibres will compress the air pocket causing your doona rug to be less warm than it is created to be.

-Our Binding Colours: Darla Designs Rugs has a specific binding colour for each size making it easier to identify the size of your rug for all those people that have multiple Horses to rug by just looking at the binding colour instead of looking for a worn out tag.
