Vintage Hudson Bay Point Blankets
Suzanne Elusorr
Price:  $50 large H.B. blanket; $40 smaller H.B. blanket; $35 Orlaskan blanket

Two vintage Hudson Bay "Point" Blankets.   One is 4 points (82" x 64") in very good condition.  The other is 3 1/2 points (76" x 64") - has a few small stains and one tiny moth hole.   The "point system" in Hudson Bay Blankets was a traditional way to know the size of the blanket without having to unfold it. 

Also available is another vintage blanket, and "Orlaskan", size 81"x 72" in very good condition except for a repair about 4" long on one edge.  The Orlanskan blankets were made by the Orr Felt and Blanket Company in Piqua, Ohio (essentially a competitor of the Hudson Bay Co.)  All blankets are 100% wool. 

These would all be wonderful for anyone who is making custom clothing and then felting the garments.  Please email with any questions and/or for more photos.
