As good quality wool blankets became important as a trading commodity for explorers and trappers, American companies began production of woolen trade blankets. These companies that sprung up in America with names like Racine Woolen Mills in Wisconsin, Capps in Illinois, Buell in Missouri and Oregon City Mill in Oregon began to produce these trade blankets.
Before getting ready to drive to the home depot or the department store, take some time to browse through online stores selling products for the home. You'll discover just how vast these stores are, how wide their variety of items is, and of course how cheap the prices are compared to retail prices at the mall. If you think you can analyze and visualize the items just by reading product descriptions, buying online may be the best choice for you.
Native Americans are very much connected to the history of the blanket. Long before white settlers drove west the Indians could use their blankets made from plant fibers as trade items for food and tools. When trappers began to move west in search of animal skins, they would trade blankets to the Indians for beaver skins. Then when the settlers drove west the Native Americans could trade handmade blankets, strung beads and other items made from animal bones for commercially made wool blankets.
