Swiss Army Style Heavyweight 80% Wool Blanket

The original Swiss Army blankets are unique and in very limited supply. They were produced from the end of the 19th century up to the early sixties and stored in caves in the Swiss Alps, which served as military depots. The blankets were signed with the initials of the maker and the year of origin. Some are dated 1907, over 100 years old!

These are the very best quality heavy weight reproduction Swiss Army blankets  and they come in various shades of grey-brown with a red band on either side, one being adorned with the instantly recognisable Swiss Cross.  Stitched through the blanket in one corner is the letter 'W' and the number '68'.

These Swiss Army blankets are typical of genuine Swiss quality, in combination with great charm and timeless beauty.  Perfect for camping, garden, outdoor events or as a throw for a bed or that old leather chair. Also great for making your own bushcraft clothing such as smocks.

Lovely blanket that will last me a lifetime. It reminds me of the US army blanket that I got from my granddad and that is still as good as new after 80+ years.

Original Swiss army blankets are like hens teeth so I took a punt on this reproduction blanket and was pleasantly surprised. It has a simulacrum of the red stripes woven into each end, the white cross and a makers mark and year, and they are an adequate representation without becoming an out and out forgery. The blanket itself is a brown-grey colour and has a good thickness and loft to the material and I can see this becoming a treasured companion on camping trips in the future.

As a football Mom I spend many hours standing on the side lines supporting my kids in all weather conditions. I have spent hundreds of pounds on coats that are supposed to keep you warm but have you to find one that does. I purchased this blanket to wrap around me on the cold football mornings and guess what? I was very warm indeed. Would highly recommend purchasing one of these if you feel the cold. It is a good size, good price and NOT itchy at all. I received my blanket 3 days after purchasing which was just in time to test out at football. My first purchase from Woodland Ways has been very satisfactory and efficient. Definitely use them again.
