I’m Obsessed: Military Blankets

Military Blankets:  When it comes to Utilitarian Chic, you can’t beat a vintage military blanket…they are earthy, graphic, warm , and rich with history.

Woolrich Civil War Blankets:  Civil War blankets were made by Woolrich and supplied to troops from 1861–1865. Today, historical groups and movie studios purchase bolts of Woolrich fabric to create authentic uniforms and blankets for re-enactments of this important period of American history.

    I was just googling vintage wool blankets and I found your site. I’m loving that Italian Military Blanket. I’m thinking of recovering my mid century dining chairs with them. Have you actually seen any of them. I’m wondering about the texture. I’m obsessing right now.

      Thanks for the comment! I actually own a vintage wool blanket and to be honest, it’s a bit “scratchy.” So, for upholstery, I think you’d have to just search until you found one with the right texture…
      Good Luck!
