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.
It became necessary for the Native Americans to trade for wool blankets as the white hunters moved west and slaughtered the buffalo and took the skins which were a staple for food, shelter and clothing for the Indians.
Blankets form a huge part of our home décor because they are everywhere in your house from living rooms to bed rooms. Choosing the right one becomes a difficult task even because most of the people are quite finicky about it to avoid repeating a design or even a texture. The choice of blanket is varied for all age groups. Some might like the cotton ones while others might opt for velvet.
In 1901 the introduction of the jacquard loom altered the designs dramatically allowing the mills to create different zigzag designs in contrasting colors. The Native Americans had no choice but to accept them.
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.
