    25% Off Pre-Mothers' Day sale.

    They have the Banderita Blankets back in stock and in different colors, too. I would go with the Queen size for Bushcrafting purposes.

    Code: PREMOM18

    They had a 25% off pre-Valentine's Day sale then had a regular V.D. sale for 30% off. They may do something like that again.

    The best deal I've seen is 30% off.

    These blankets are a great buy--do a search on the site for reviews on it. The lighter "throw" weight blankets are excellent for the Spring and Fall. They are lightweight, super soft and quite warm for their thickness.

    I got two of the blankets last year and they are wonderful!

    This is more of a "want" than a "need" as I have several heavy mil-surp wool blankets already. But my girlfriend likes alpaca fiber so I could justify it as a gift to her primarily...which I might borrow once in a while.

    Looks like a good deal with the coupon codes, but I don't see in the product description if they specify the wool blend content. All it says is alpaca/Merino blend but they don't say what percent of each.

    So @Harper and @bobs1415 since you guys have the blankets, can I ask if yours came with a tag or something that breaks down the wool blend percents? Thanks! I can also try emailing the company to ask if there isn't a tag. I'll update here if I get the info from them directly.

    Found the info in an FAQ subpage on their website. It is a half and half blend of alpaca and Merino.

    "Which is the composition of your non-100% alpaca items?

    They are 50% alpaca-50% wool, unless they specifically state 100% alpaca as the composition."

    Can anyone state it's thickness? I have always been tempted to buy one but already have 8 blankets. How does it compare to vintage dutch blankets like the Aabe?

    Agreed! I bought one last black Friday and they're great. They're thick, warm, and soft. After owning one I'll never buy any other type of wool blanket. Definitely quality and you won't be sorry.

    It's a thick blanket. I can't compare it to a vintage Dutch blanket, but I have the twin size and it weighs 3.6 lbs. Slept in a hammock with only this blanket and I was warm all night even though it dropped to around 49 degrees.

    I don't have a Dutch blanket.

    I do have an HBC, Fairbault and some other wool blankets.

    The Alpaca is the one I have on my bed and is the only one that I use these day (I have another Alpaca one for the field).

    They are as soft as cashmere and warmer than sheep's wool.

    I hope this helps.

    For anybody wondering, shipping on a queen size blanket ended up being about $14

    I got one of the Military style ones and really like it too. That's a very good deal in my opinion.
