About Antique Blankets

Have you ever owned an antique blanket? Antique blankets, like homes, quilts and furniture were made to last. The quality and fibers were usually the very best. People did not buy many, they had a few, and would buy or make the best that they could afford. Most 18th and 19th century blankets in New England were homespun, often taking two years for their creation. We have cotton, linen and wool, or a combination of these fibers. All antique textiles were made with natural fibers, no synthetics. Early New England blankets were made for warmth. These blankets have been organically washed by Betsey and ready for use.

B6 Homespun Blanket
B6 Homespun Blanket
19th century
74 x 87 inches
Maine
$550

Some of the most exciting fabrics for me are homespun. This is a mid 19th century homespun blanket made from wool. Selvedge to selvedge measures 37”. This was created from hand carded woolen threads and possibly hand carded linen threads. We know from looking at this piece that it has been hand dyed. Nothing was ever wasted, so when one shade was used up, they just went to the next available shade. I like character, and this blanket, which appears never to have been used, has fabulous character. Made to fit a double bed, but will also fit a twin or be used as a throw on any bed or couch. Organically washed by Betsey.

This blanket is comprised of two completely separate blankets. I have no idea how they are attached, I think it’s magic. The colors are incredible. One side is a deep rich chocolate brown. The other side is a pumpkin, indigo blue and moss green intricately woven together creating a beautiful plaid. The threads on both sides look homespun.

Very soft to the touch.
