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.
A blanket is a type of bedding, a large piece of fabric used to cover a person in or out of bed for warmth. We know that the Native Americans would cover themselves with leaves and grasses to protect them from the elements. Eventually they learned how to weave grasses and reeds into a blanket and a mat to sleep on. These types of blankets have been found with burials of ancient people all around the world.
Natural fiber blankets can be quite expensive, but they provide optimum durability and breathability because of the natural materials being used during manufacture. Most people find natural fiber blankets more comfortable to use, so if you think the comfort and health of your family is more important than price, this is the type of blanket for you.
