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.
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.
There are many types of coverlets and bedspreads to choose from. Luxurious bedding, like the type at the Hilton Hotel, is often referred to as "heavenly" or "fit for a king." The truth is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy a good night's sleep.

We don't use wool trade blankets today because we have a market loaded with blankets made of various materials that are a lot more comfortable than wool. They are made in many forms and materials such as cotton, fleece, cashmere, silk and chenille, and are called blankets, quilts and comforters. In my next article I will delve into the different blankets that are manufactured today and the material they are made from.
