A navy blue 66" x 90" pure wool blanket is the key to staying warm and dry on chilly nights. The benefit of 100% wool fibers is the natural ability of the fiber to shed moisture. The same tight weave is responsible for keeping that warmth right next to your body. Wool blankets were a basic necessity in the period and can be found in records from every social class.
I had to return the item, not because there was anything wrong with the blanket, but I found out after I had ordered it that the color was not consistent with the requirements of the event for which I purchased it. We are always pleased with the items we receive from Samson's and are in fact coming to rely on them as one of our primary sources of reenactment living history clothing and accessories. Your quick turn around and really professional customer service make it a pleasure to do business with you. Bill Grant, Pvt Musket and Fife First NH Regiment
Very well made, soft and comfortable and warm.
This is heavy condensed wool not fluffy, ( the rounded corners & the white stiching on edges is different), definitely for cold weather, no smells, I am happy, Sampsons delivery top notch. Thanks.
