We don't use wool trade blankets today because we have a market loaded with blankets made of various materials that are a lot more comfortable than wool. They are made in many forms and materials such as cotton, fleece, cashmere, silk and chenille, and are called blankets, quilts and comforters. In my next article I will delve into the different blankets that are manufactured today and the material they are made from.
There are many types of coverlets and bedspreads to choose from. Luxurious bedding, like the type at the Hilton Hotel, is often referred to as "heavenly" or "fit for a king." The truth is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy a good night's sleep.
Decorating the home and the different rooms is always a fun and exciting activity. The first step, unless you already have furniture and beddings prior to moving in, is shopping for the things needed to complete the home. For the bedroom, it's always the beddings, pillows, and blankets that should be at the top of your list. If you just moved into a new home and are about to shop for beddings and blankets, this article is going to help you choose wisely among the thousands of brands and types of blankets being sold in stores nationwide. You will realize how important it is to choose wisely because both the health of your family and your overall budget will depend on your decisions.
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.
In 1901 the introduction of the jacquard loom altered the designs dramatically allowing the mills to create different zigzag designs in contrasting colors. The Native Americans had no choice but to accept them.
