We are excited to offer more Federal issue blankets...just when we thought there weren't going to be more! This blanket is taken from an original blanket that was used by Musician (Drummer) John O. Quimby. Quimby was a member of the 25th Maine Infantry, and served in the regiment from September 1862 through July 1863. The blanket weighs approx. 4 pounds and measures approximately 71x73.5 inches. You will receive enough black yarn for whip stitching the ends and also yarn and a template for stitching in the "US" in the center. This blanket is woven in the USA by Family Heirloom Weavers.
