The first item on your criteria should be fabric content. This is going to have a big impact on your choice of blankets, so make sure that you choose wisely according to your budget and you're your personal preference. Fabrics are available in both natural and synthetic fibers, so it would depend on you which type is best for your home and for your family.
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 first commercially made blankets were very simple. They were white in color with a few stripes of contrasting color. The Hudson Bay Company blanket was made in England and was used for trade by European trappers to the Blackfeet and the Northern Plains 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.
Before getting ready to drive to the home depot or the department store, take some time to browse through online stores selling products for the home. You'll discover just how vast these stores are, how wide their variety of items is, and of course how cheap the prices are compared to retail prices at the mall. If you think you can analyze and visualize the items just by reading product descriptions, buying online may be the best choice for you.
