Rare Icon names like Beacon, Hudson Bay, and Pendleton. Usually the fringes indicate near antique. These are wool and are made simiar to felt. They are very thick and hold up amazingly well through time. Eye catching Indian dsigns were popular with Pendleton and Beacon. Sd with the Trading Blankets of Hudson Bay. There literally were 100's of Mills making similar designs that now are all grouped under "Hudson Bay Blankets" If you see the lines jetting out from the side, those indicate how many Beaver Pelts it took to trade for the blanket. Pretty neat and quite lovely. Camp or Cabin Blankets are thinner but the use of geometric and indian patterns make them also collectable. These were found often in old cabins and hunting lodges. Carriage Blankets were used on buggy rides. Horse blankets were used under a saddle. Be weary of the new Pendleton Blankets they are either not wool or a cheap blend- it is unfortunate but quality went to poo.

 

Enjoy!
