Old people love wool blankets, and old people also die reasonably often, so you can find this sort of thing relatively easy at the above mentioned sorts of places.
Heat is bad down there, ask your doctor.
I think you should grab two sticks and begin knitting. You have the choice of colour, weight and materials at your finger tips. You can felt the wool too.Sent from my XT1563 using Tapatalk
...I've recommended it before, and I'll do it again - Second hand shops, Garage Sales, and the like are your friends.
[...] Speaking about blankets while summer is knocking at our door makes me sweat.
firiki, take a look at the material tag too. Many times I've seen a wool blanket advertised but it's actually made from a wool blend unless that's what you wanted.
Don't count out yard sales or second hand stores. I got this Hudson's bay 4point at a yard sale for $5.
It's 1am and 82 degrees here, I don't want to see this topic anymore.......
No need to bother the relatives. Knitting a blanket is easier than you think. You are just making little knots.....thousands of little knots.....but you get to do it with sticks!
Can you buy the material, and with a bit of seaming and edging have yourself something just the size you need?
Greek Army Blanket, gray with graphite band and yellow date, is a classic. I was sleeping on one dated 1936 and another med had a 1917.https://colemans.com/shop/camping-gear/bedding/greek-wool-blanket/We use around the house my baby blanket, an αριSτον pure virgin wool. I remember as one of my first memories, it should be made in the mid 60s and still going strong. It is a red tartan pattern and colors are still vivid. My wife loves it too.I found an old ad of it, it is the same but mine is Clan Stuart like. (Image removed from quote.)
Hard to beat the HBC blanket, prized by early traders in Canada.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudson's_Bay_point_blanketStill available too.Def
I finally picked up a HB Point blanket. Its needs cleaning and some brushing but otherwise in great shape. Its a 4 pointer and wonderful.
Nice! If it wasn't for the blue lines she would blend right in.
