History

When you decode the tags found on at least some of the blankets, you find out that at least some of these were made in a factory located in Bialystok. During the Communist Era, Polish factories weren’t given any esoteric gobbledygook names, instead, the name told you exactly what you needed to know. For example, “A Factory Located in City X that manufactures Butt Buzzers in the Name of This True Hero of Labor”.

The factory mentioned on the tag specialized in wool and wool-like textiles. It isn’t mentioned to whom these were sold but these kinds of thick blankets were often used in hotels, ships, and many other places as blankets on beds. There were no duvet covers, so you put an overly long sheet against the skin, then the blanket, and then folded the extra bit on top of the upper part of the blanket. That extra bit often had some nice embroidery. The tag also mentioned that these blankets once cost 2,500 zloty, which in the ‘70s was a few cents.

Features

In Poland, there was a thing that blankets were made super thick. Today it's almost impossible to find a good thick blanket without being filthy rich. If you can live with the fact that these come in all sorts of weird colors, here's a pretty good rag for a very reasonable price - especially since these are new old stock. The blanket measures about 150 x 200 cm (59 x 79”), but this can vary a bit from one blanket to the next. They weigh around 2 kilos (4.4 lbs) but that can vary a bit as well.

Materials and care

Made of a mixture of something and other fibers. Could be, cat hair, wool man hair, raccoon dog fur, acrylic, polyester or brick dust, hard to say. We believe these can be machine washed at 40 degrees Celsius (104 F). Hang dry.

Condition

Polish unissued surplus. Probably been stored away ever since the ‘70s or something. The details, colors, and patterns will vary in the spectrum of your imagination, as long as it follows the Socialist Norm.

Tuo ensimmäisen myyntikuvan peitteen väriskaala ja kuviointi on samaa tasoa Singaporen lentoaseman kokolattiamaton kanssa.

Kolmantena listalla kuvioissa missä oksennus ei näy tulee TAZ 83. Hyvällä tavalla.

Ensimmäisestä kahdesta ei voi tykätä selvin päin eikä viidentoista voltin humalassa.

Tämmönen kannattaa pestä nuotiossa ennen ensimmäistä käyttökertaa tai käyttää rättinä öljynvaihdossa niin tuo oranssi ei hypi niin paljoa silmille.

Tai jos haluat elämääsi jännitystä: Jos asuinkumppanisi suosii kaikkia mielisairalaanvalkoisen eri sävyjä katosta lattiaan koko asunnossa saunaa myöten niin take the leap ja mene sohvalle nukkumaan tämmösen kanssa ja odota lopputulosta kun hän tulee kotiin.

Tästäkin huolimatta kuitenkin suosittelen lämpimästi tätä yhdellä pisteellä koska onhan se nyt jumalauta. (sic)

Jos ei ole turhan tarkka värityksestä,niin huippudiili tällä hinnalla,eikä paksuja villahuopia löydä enää mistään edes kovalla hinnalla.

Varsovanliiton ja itäblokin strategiaan on näemmä kuulunut valmistaa massatuotetut varusteet täysin yksilöllisiksi. Jokainen kommunisti on aikoinaan ainakin yhdessä tuotantolaitosten tuottamassa asiassa voinut löytää juuri itseään miellyttävän yksilön.

Ostamassani huovassa ei ole villaa ollenkaan, vaan se on tuotelapun mukaan valmistettu jonkinlaisesta akryylin tapaisesta keinokuidusta (anilana) ja selluloosasta. Huopa on kyllä muhkea ja varmasti lämmin.

I can't be 100% sure on the composition but I got a nice looking, thick blanket that's pretty soft. I appreciate the honesty from Varusteleka on that front. Mine said 40% cellulose and 60% something else. Probably wool. Feels wooly but Google translate didn't quite confirm that. For the price, still a darn good deal for a 60/40 wool/synthetic blanket. There's a place stateside selling these (or at least similar) for almost 3x as much so I'm happy with what I got for the price.

Todella hyvännäköinen, paksu ja lämmin laatuhuopa halvalla. Yksi tähti pois siksi, että huopa tuoksuu Pertti-sedän Transitin sikaosastolle, missä pidetään kaikkia työkaluja ja öljytonkkia. Pesu ja tuuletus eivät tehneet mitään, joten kyseessä lienee enemmänkin ominaisuus kuin vika. Tästä johtuen tuoksuherkille suosittelu tietyin varauksin, itseäni ei haittaa. Hyvä lahjaidea esimerkiksi vaimon syntymäpäiväksi.

These blankets are the Cat's Meow. for $32CAD per blanket you can't beat the price. I ordered 2. One is a red/blue plaid and one is a red/white plaid. They are thick and soft. I have mine hanging outside for a few days to air out the Communism smell. Once aired out, one is going to be gifted to my sister in law, and one is going to be put on the back of the couch. You can't go wrong with these blankets.

Eye-popping color!
Not something one would expect for communist-block issue, but they are SO FREAKING SOFT!
Not to mention my cat will not sleep on her bed now, but that's another issue.
Great quality, still had the maker's paper tag on it. I may try my Bixby translate and see what mystical properties it contains.
I'm looking to get more when you get them back in stock!

Hyvä huopa tähän hintaan. Kerää tehokkaasti hajuja sekä säilyttää ne erittäin hyvin. Tästä johtuen tuuletus ei auttanut poistamaan niitä. Pesin villanpesuaineeella ja pyykkietikalla pesukoneessa villalle tarkoitetulla ohjelmalla. Nyt se tuoksuu miedosti pesuaineelle mitä käytin ja tämä on hyvä verrattaen alkuperäiseen tuoksuun. Ei varmaan oikean villan kanssa ole tekemistä mutta mukavan tuntuinen, kokoinen ja tosi lämmin on.
