The conventional blanket is the complete opposite. It is tightly woven in order to provide warmth and insulation for the body. These blankets are made with synthetic or wool fibers, ideal for those who are sensitive to cold weather. Buy this kind of blanket if you are the type of sleeper who easily feels cold during the evenings and need more warmth to be able to sleep soundly.
Today the interest in pre WW2 trade blankets is growing. They are being sought after by collectors. You can also find them in museums in almost every state in America.
As good quality wool blankets became important as a trading commodity for explorers and trappers, American companies began production of woolen trade blankets. These companies that sprung up in America with names like Racine Woolen Mills in Wisconsin, Capps in Illinois, Buell in Missouri and Oregon City Mill in Oregon began to produce these trade blankets.
Conventional blankets, on the other hand, are for those who are sensitive to the cold and need more insulation during the night. Made with synthetic or wool fibers, conventional blankets are tightly woven and provide more warmth.
The Pendleton Mills blanket became the favorite Indian trade blanket and when World War2 ended all the other American Wool Mills went out of business.
