Here’s some cold Friday, heritage news. Woolrich, providing wool blankets from PA since 1830 celebrates their history and the legacy of supplying troops from 1861-65 with Civil War blankets. To be fair, we weren’t really expecting any Sesquicentennial tie-in product (honestly, this probably has nothing to do with that American history milestone), but appreciate direct nods to actual garment/life synergy. Woolrich has been making blankets for reenactors for decades, so we can also happily report that these blankets aren’t just specifically prepared for the urban woodsmen set. That’s the nice thing about the quartet of Civil War blankets really – handsome colors make for near universal appeal.
