The Pendleton Mills blanket became the favorite Indian trade blanket and when World War2 ended all the other American Wool Mills went out of business.
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.
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.
Synthetic fiber blankets are much cheaper than natural fiber ones but they lack breathability due to the materials being used. Examples of synthetic fiber blankets include acrylic, fleece, and vellux. These blankets, particularly acrylic blankets, provide warmth during cold seasons and are much more affordable.
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.
