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.
Then in the year 1896 the Pendleton Woolen Mill in Pendleton Oregon became the first mill founded for the sole purpose of producing trade blankets. Each of these mills had their own specific design to designate which mill it was produced in. Some of them were very similar in design, but the Oregon City blankets had a very intricate design that was different from all the rest. The plains Indians preferred the Capps simple design over all the rest.
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.
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.
Synthetic fiber blankets are much cheaper than natural fiber ones but they lack breathability due to the materials being used. Examples of synthetic fiber blankets include acrylic, fleece, and vellux. These blankets, particularly acrylic blankets, provide warmth during cold seasons and are much more affordable.
