Warm Winter Blankets

Updated on September 20, 2014

Blankets With Attitude

Remember the days when you used to curl up by the fire wrapped in a warm woolly blanket? Somehow down quilts aren't really the same and micro-fibre doesn't hold the warmth in quite the same way as wool.

Blankets come soft and fluffy, thick and snuggly or in heavy duty outdoor weaves. I also love what I like to think of as 'blankets with attitude'. These are the historic Hudson's Bay Co. blankets that have been around in various colors and designs since the 18th century, or the Pendleton National Park blankets that come with distinctive motifs commemorating the features of some of America's great national parklands.

Pendleton also has a colorful history. They've been weaving Indian-style blankets since the days of the fur traders. These national treasures make wonderful throws that add great color interest to your living spaces. There are many others to choose from.

Then there are the straight out 'Picture Blankets and Throws' that have character and style that's just their own. Check out a few of these styles below.

Whether folded at the foot of your bed or thrown across a seat by the fireside winter is definitely going to be more snug with a warm blanket.

Warm Blankets With Attitude

Here's a summary of my favorites from Amazon.

These winter blankets are both functional and heart-warming and they come in great traditional and modern styles.

  • Pendleton traditional Indian style blankets
  • Pendleton National Park blankets
  • Hudson's Bay blankets that have been around since 1870
  • Modern picture blankets with color and style to suit your character

How to Choose

Traditional or Modern - It's Your choice!

If you're a traditionalist you'll love the romance of the Indian trade blankets, or perhaps you might prefer to be reminded of the great outdoors by the blankets designed specially for the US National Parks.

On the other hand if you want something more modern to decorate a teenager's room or perhaps express your own particular style you can choose from the range of picture blankets shown here.

Consider the following:

  • Indian trade blankets come in brilliant colors and great designs that will add a touch of romance and history to your decor.
  • Indian trade blankets can be used as throws to liven up your living space or even hung on the wall as a decorative feature
  • Pendleton National park blankets are 100% virgin wool and come labelled with the park name and image of a natural feature
  • The Hudson's Bay Point Blankets with their distinctive stripes are to be treasured for their rich history and brilliant color contrast
  • Picture blankets appeal to your sense of fun and let you express your character through your choice of a unique design

Winter warmth or brilliant decor - or both! Many blankets in the traditional range are now collector's items and can be treasured for years to come.
