When man developed the resource to harvest animals for food they realized that the skins could be used for a bed and blanket to keep them dry and for warmth. If the skin of an animal could keep the animal warm then it made sense that it could keep man warm and also cloth him.
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.
It became necessary for the Native Americans to trade for wool blankets as the white hunters moved west and slaughtered the buffalo and took the skins which were a staple for food, shelter and clothing for the Indians.
