Real US-made wool yarn blankets. Even though these have not seen field use for a very long time, they are still perfectly usable. This must be one of the nicest & comfiest blankets we've encountered - the Americans sure have the bucks to make stuff like that.

Most blankets were replaced before the Vietnam war with a poncho and liner made of synthetic materials. If you want more misery on the front lines, the blanket is for you. If wet, it weighs a ton and is definitely not as warm as most sleeping bags.

However, the blanket still has its uses. It is easier to keep clean and to air out than a sleeping bag and is a more general purpose item. You can carry stuff in it and use it as a poncho during nightly guard duty or sitting by the campfire.

Of course, it is also a stylish element for any bed. This particular blanket is a neutral grey and quite soft to touch, so you don't need to be a rough soldier to appreciate it.

Material and info

The material is 80 % wool and 20 % man-made fibres. The excellent properties of wool get to shine and care is no different from a fully woollen one: air every now and then, wash seldom if ever.

  • Length and width: approx. 210 x 165 cm (84" x 66")
  • Weight: 1.9 kg (4.2 lbs)

US surplus

High-quality surplus from the US. Used very lightly, if at all. These are proper vintage from decades ago.

Employee's comments

I don't always frown because of the taxes I pay and how they are spent. But when I do, wrapping this US made wool blanket around the shoulders embraces my freedom-craving soul as well. The blanket is relatively thin, which is a good thing for casual use indoors, and it's the least itchy wool blanket I've tried. This blanket fends off cold and protects from anxiety when socialism seems overwhelming. Pure magic.

Aina kun luen palkkakuitista maksamieni verojen määrän ja lehdistä mihin ne verorahat menevät, alkaa sosialismin vanne kiristää vapautta kaipaavan sieluni päätä. Silloin ei auta kääriytyä ihan mihin hyvänsä huopaan, vaan moreenia kohottaa vain Yhdysvalloissa valmistettu tuotos.

Huopa on arkiseen sisäkäyttöön sopivasti melko ohut ja pistelevyys vähäisintä, mihin olen huovissa törmännyt. Tämän kankaan sisällä tuntee vapaan maailman viimeisen linnakkeen syleilyn ja olo on turvallinen kuin äidin kohdussa.

Hyvä huopa. Olisi tietysti parempi, jos olisi villaa kokonaan.
