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.
Blankets form a huge part of our home décor because they are everywhere in your house from living rooms to bed rooms. Choosing the right one becomes a difficult task even because most of the people are quite finicky about it to avoid repeating a design or even a texture. The choice of blanket is varied for all age groups. Some might like the cotton ones while others might opt for velvet.
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.
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.
Thermal blankets usually are woven loosely as compared to conventional blankets in order to allow air to circulate. These are best for people who do not need so much warmth during sleep. It is made with acrylic and cotton fibers.
