About Wool Army Blankets
You have piled on blanket after blanket, but you still feel as cold as a penguin sitting on an ice cube. It is time to pull out the wool Army blankets. Whether you are covering up at home on a chilly evening or camping out under the stars, these blankets are some of the warmest you will ever find. Made of 100 percent wool, they provide excellent insulation. The government issue green wool Army blankets are 60 inches wide and 156 inches long, perfect for snuggling in front of a warm fire. Although the US Army wool blankets are large, they are lightweight, weighing only 5.5 pounds. They are fire retardant and make great blankets to spread out for a picnic, parade, or other outdoor event on chilly days. The blankets can be machine washed in cold water with a wool-safe detergent and air dried. When not in use, store your wool Army blankets in air-tight bags with sheets of tissue paper between the folds. Place a few cedar chips in the bag to prevent moth damage. You can find a vast inventory of wool Army blankets on eBay.
