In the winter time, creature comforts are especially important. Small treasures like a hot cup of cocoa or curling up with a novel and a warm electric blanket are priceless. Blankets are more than just a necessity, they're a lifestyle choice. The type of fabric, the weight and the style can make the difference between tossing and turning or sleeping like a baby the whole night through. Moreover, the colors and patterns will accent a room to create a certain mood. There are dozens of choices, but basically you'll need to consider things like material, type, color and durability.
By the late 1800's most Native Americans were confined to reservations and the trading post was established. These trading posts were located on the reservations for the sole purpose of trading with the Indians for animal skins which were in high demand back east. The wool mills found a built-in market for their blankets. Needless to say, the Native Americans soon became the wool mills best customers. Being very eager to please the Native Americans, the mills would send representatives to live among the tribes to learn just which design could be used to identify one tribe from another.
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.
