The first commercially made blankets were very simple. They were white in color with a few stripes of contrasting color. The Hudson Bay Company blanket was made in England and was used for trade by European trappers to the Blackfeet and the Northern Plains Indians.
Thermal blankets usually are woven loosely as compared to conventional blankets in order to allow air to circulate. These are best for people who do not need so much warmth during sleep. It is made with acrylic and cotton fibers.
The next criterion is the construction or weaving of the blankets. This focuses more on the warmth and insulation being provided by the blankets. If you live in areas where it is normally cold or hot, this is an important factor to look into when shopping for blankets. There are two types of weaving: thermal and conventional.
By the late 1800's most Native Americans were confined to reservations and the trading post was established. These trading posts were located on the reservations for the sole purpose of trading with the Indians for animal skins which were in high demand back east. The wool mills found a built-in market for their blankets. Needless to say, the Native Americans soon became the wool mills best customers. Being very eager to please the Native Americans, the mills would send representatives to live among the tribes to learn just which design could be used to identify one tribe from another.
Blankets made with natural fibers are durable and promote breathability when used. Most people find these more comfortable to use because of these two traits, so if you're after comfortable and breathable blankets, look for those that are made with natural fibers. Some examples of natural fiber blankets include cotton, wool, and down blankets.
