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.
Today the interest in pre WW2 trade blankets is growing. They are being sought after by collectors. You can also find them in museums in almost every state in America.
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.
Luxury sets include items like satin sheets, down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, memory foam, high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, damask pattern sheets and hand-embroidery. This type of bedding is recommended if you require maximum comfort and durability or if your decorating scheme is upscale modern. Frette, Bellino Fine Linens, Anichini, Peacock Alley, Pratesi and Yves Delorme are just a few of the manufacturers that offer luxury bedding.
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.
