well made: Hudson Bay point blanket

100% wool and still loomed in England for The Hudson Bay Company, Canada, these iconic multi-stripe blankets have been around since the 18th century and were originally traded with Native Americans for fur pelts. Each Bay Blanket is graded by points (thin indigo lines) stitched in to one side of the blanket to represent size and weight. Available via The Old Faithful Shop. (Mine's just arrived in time for Christmas!)
