Choosing a blanket also means checking out the type of construction or weave of the blanket. This has to do with the warmth and insulation the blanket provides to the user. There are two types of blankets based on weaving: thermal and conventional.
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 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.
