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.
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.
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.
