I know I have been going on ad nauseum about stripes in this blog but I would be remiss if I did not share my love of the Hudson Bay Iconic Stripe not only on the blanket but on all things wearable + not.
In the North American fur trade, point blankets were one of the main European items sought by native peoples in exchange for beaver pelts, buffalo robes, pemmican, moccasins, and other trade goods. They were desired because of wool's ability to hold heat even when wet, and because they were easier to sew than bison or deer skins. Read more about them on wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudson%27s_Bay_point_blanket
A blanket as a coat.....
Blanket as BFF bag....I am unabashedly inspired by the Hudson Bay Stripes.
