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.

Hudson's Bay Company woolen blankets were manufactured in England and developed the reputation for being the best woven blankets.

Very soft to the touch.
