opportunity to pick one up reasonably.
Blankets For Sale - Woodburn
While my current project to reproduce an ID'd blanket from ILL. is
underway, I have recieved a short run of about 40 blankets. They were
produced by a mill at someone else's request to be an Abraham Thomas
knockoff. Because they didn't turn out exactly like a Thomas and some
didn't have one edge selvedged, they weren't purchased and sat in a
mill warehouse for about two years. Here are the details: 80" x 72"
(they're very wide, good for rolling up in), color is very similar to
the first run Thomas tan color with very small amounts of black shod
bits, brown woven end stripes, weight is a little less/little thinner
than a Thomas or my previous run of Woodburn-Mount blankets. I'll
supply brown yarn and two "US" templates (three line and serif) for
you to sew in if you choose. The price is $75 plus $8 shipping in the
continental US. For the blankets with one edge not selvedged (meaning
one side is fuzzy) they are $65 plus $8 shipping. As always, full
refund if you're not satisfied. Somebody else's mistake means good
savings to you for a pretty good blanket (not a Woodburn-Mount, but
I'm partial). These are in stock for immediate shipment. If you have
a group and want them on the roll for issue, I can do that for you.
We issued them at Fort Granger this way and it was a nice touch to a
garrison living history. Thanks to the first customers Matt Caldwell,
Eric Emde and Justin Raines. For more information and ordering, email
me at RMWoodburn@... Mention the Authentic Campaigner website and
I'll donate $5 for each order to Paul Calloway to keep our website
