Are You a History Buff? Would You Love to Own Something Made Since the Civil War?

Woolrich: The Last Company Still Making Blankets in Their Mills Since the Civil War!

~ Large Blankets to Keep You Warm Just Like the Soldiers ~
Review by Mama Luvs Books:
We are huge history buffs in our household. My husband has a goal to visit every Civil War battlefield in the US, and I used to want to work as a Colonial Girl in Williamsburg (which never happened). History is so intriguing and interesting to learn about. If we don’t look and see how we’ve done things in the past, then we will never learn how to better ourselves as a culture in the future. 

When I was given the chance to review a blanket from Woolrich I was super excited. These blankets are made just the same as they were in the Civil War, and in the same working mill that they were made in during that time. How cool is that? The company provides many of their materials to Hollywood for making outfits and props for that era, but you can order one just for you too! 

You can choose a blanket from Gettysburg, Fort Sumter, the Cavalry or Artillery. See them on their site.   
Description from their site:
Civil War blankets were made by Woolrich and supplied to troops from 1861-1865. Today, historical groups and movie studios purchase bolts of Woolrich fabric to create authentic uniforms and blankets for re-enactments of this important period of American history.

We’ve created these Civil War Blankets in commemoration of that historic period. Ready to use and enjoy, they are a unique chance to own and enjoy a blanket made in the same Woolrich mill that created the originals.


  • 80% reprocessed wool/20% nylon
  • Hand wash or dry clean
  • 60″ x 84″

    Make sure to check out Woolrich online! They have men’s clothes, women’s clothes, home goods, sporting goods, etc.

    23. This is really cool. My parents are history buffs and would love these.

    24. I like the blankets but I wouldn’t be able to use it because its wool.

    25. My father had his blankets from the 2WW,and even when the duvet blanket became fashion he sit used his war blankets.

    26. Gettysburg blanket for me. I’ve actually been to Gettysburg with friends and it really is an amazing place. We mainly went for ghost hunt at night but during the day it was an emotional place to walk through thinking about all the men/boys who died fighting there.

    27. I think it’s neat how they order bolts of fabric from Woolrich to make authentic dress.

    28. My sister has one of these blankets…great quality

    29. Fort Sumter

    38. My grandfather and father were both in the Navy, and we had these blankets around the house when I was a kid! I remember them as being VERY WARM, but also VERY SCRATCHY when next to your skin! So we would put a sheet under the blanket, and when we ran out of heating oil in the winter, these blankets kept us warm and toasty! I think my mother still has one of these blankets floating around somewhere! Thanks for this awesome review! It sure brought back a lot of fond memories! (=
