    Traded one to shnick. I loved it and was hoping no one would take that one off my hands but the wife told me i had too much wool laying around. I think i had over 150 lbs of blankets.

    I was at the local thrift store the other day. They had a Hudson bay three point for $75. Looking around I see a beautiful cream colored wool blanket the same size for six dollars. No name tag, but it is the better quality blanket. Always look past the name tag.

    I was going to say the same thing....many Hudson's bay blankets were made by Whitney

    I bought a Red 4 point whitneys blanket at the local good will for 6 bucks . I felt like I was stealing from them. Since then I have bought 8-10 other wool blankets from them. They always say as is?????? I wonder if they mean like new. People apparently no longer like durable goods.

    Thickness is not the mesurement to use,the lofter the wool the warmer the blanket.Surplus blankets are not that warm due to the compresion of the wool/material.

    A" warm " blanket is not cheap.

    I have 85+ year old 4 point HB that I sleep with every night.
    It's not nearly as thick and nice as it used to be but keeps me warm without much heat on in winter.

    If it gets really cold I have a Rob Stone 4 point blanket to end all misery.
