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.
In the winter time, creature comforts are especially important. Small treasures like a hot cup of cocoa or curling up with a novel and a warm electric blanket are priceless. Blankets are more than just a necessity, they're a lifestyle choice. The type of fabric, the weight and the style can make the difference between tossing and turning or sleeping like a baby the whole night through. Moreover, the colors and patterns will accent a room to create a certain mood. There are dozens of choices, but basically you'll need to consider things like material, type, color and durability.
Fashion bedding offers blankets from designer name brands. If you're living the high life, in a whirlwind of style, culture and good fortune, then you'll want to impress guests with your sense of taste. The trick with designer bedding is that it doesn't always have to cost a fortune to look sleek and stylish.
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.
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.
