Disaster control blanket, surplus
Well someone must be pretty optimistic somewhere, or alternatively they're going to stuff shaken and hypthermic people into sleeping bags, like they did in the Falklands war to diarrhoea patients. Oh where were we? Yes, yes: these are pretty good blankets, not a disaster at all!
Thickish, gray, measurements 210 x 150 cm (6.8' x 5'), likely has a good percentage of wool. The edges are reinforced against fraying. For some reason these have silver and gold coloured bits of thread randomly imbued to the fabric. Nice! Don't be afraid, this is just like any regular ol' army blanket, but for a slightly less than average price.
Weight about 1,8 kg.
Note! The colour shades may vary from darker gray to lighter tones, see the pictures. We will not pick specific ones, sorry.

Not as thick as a Swedish blanket, but plenty thick despite this.
Considering the price, you're getting a damn good blanket to wear and tear for a very low price.
Washed it and aired it. Still have a slight smell, but not overwhelming.
This one will be going in the car trunk for those disaster situations.

Now they sell it for 29.99 after they were out of stock for some month. I don't know why they double the price but for 29.99 there are better options.
