The point blanket from Hudson Bay Co. is the quintessential Canadian blanket, with hundreds of years of history. Old Faithful Shop has just taken stock of the multi-colour and monochromatic version, both are perfect for this time of year. Made in England of 100% Wool, these queen sized blankets have six points stitched to one side to signify it's size.
"The Hudson Bay Point Blanket is a Canadian Icon - as early as 1780 Europeans were trading these wool blankets for furs, pelts and pemmican hunted by the First Nations. The First Nations appreciated the wool blankets for their incredible warmth in all weather conditions - they were also a cinch to sew when compared with tough caribou hide.
Each Hudson Bay Blanket is still woven in England using thick pure wool: the Bay Point Blankets come with points stitched in to one side of the blanket - These points represent the size and weight of the blanket: our queen sized blankets have six points."
