British Army Blanket

We are excited to be able to offer authentic reproduction British blankets, like those that were imported into the Confederacy through the blockade (but used much earlier by the British Army).  Our reproduction is woven in the USA with period correct return selvedge and is 100% wool.  It has been fulled and finished and weights approximately 3.2 pounds.  It features the narrow blue lines on each lengthwise side of the blanket.  The blanket measures 86x72.  These are available in limited numbers, so don't delay!  Also available in a separate listing as "double" blankets that have been uncut.  Note - edges have been whipped with a modern serger machine to keep them from unravelling during the fulling and finishing process.  Those threads can be cut and this removed before use by living historians.

    British Army Blanket

    Posted by Dave on 1st Apr 2021

    Although between the covid and the weather I have not yet tested this blanket in the field, there are some comments I can offer Tahe item arrived well-packaged and in a timely manner. To "test" it, I laid on the floor. I am 5' 10" and it covered me from the botton of my heels to my upper lip. Its' width was sufficient to cover me entirely with plenty left over. When folded over length-wise, it still covered me entirely with a bit to spare. This would work well as a 3-season blanket. I'm glad I bought it and reccomend it to anyone desiring to kick up the authenticity gauge a notch.
