Native Americans are very much connected to the history of the blanket. Long before white settlers drove west the Indians could use their blankets made from plant fibers as trade items for food and tools. When trappers began to move west in search of animal skins, they would trade blankets to the Indians for beaver skins. Then when the settlers drove west the Native Americans could trade handmade blankets, strung beads and other items made from animal bones for commercially made wool blankets.
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.
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.
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.
Before getting ready to drive to the home depot or the department store, take some time to browse through online stores selling products for the home. You'll discover just how vast these stores are, how wide their variety of items is, and of course how cheap the prices are compared to retail prices at the mall. If you think you can analyze and visualize the items just by reading product descriptions, buying online may be the best choice for you.
