Most soldiers in the French Army raved about this blanket as it was one of the nicest army blankets that was ever fielded by the French and helped keep hundreds of thousands of soldiers warm.

The French OD Wool Blanket is an authentic French army wool blanket that is in excellent condition. We have had many wool blankets in the past, none have been quite as nice as this newest blanket we've imported from France. The wool is less of the "itchy" type and more of the soft, comfortable, and warm that you would find on a commercial wool blanket. When the French army produced these blankets, someone in the production chain clearly wanted the French soldiers to be not just warm but also quite comfortable.

Wool blankets have always been in demand due to the versatility of wool when compared to synthetic fabrics. Wool tends to be very warm, even when wet, so that when used in tough climates you can count on it performing. You can also use a wool blanket to make a makeshift shelter, carry gear in it by folding it into a knapsack, or turn it into a poncho or cape for additional uses other than a blanket.

Features:
  • Authentic French Army Wool Blanket
  • Olive Drab Green Color
  • Huge  84" x 62" Dimensions

Amazing wool blanket that is heavy without being too much. Unbelievably warm with a tight knit and pretty soft. No "mothball" smell. Buy at least one for each vehicle Review by Jody (Posted on 11/4/2016)
Beats those other supposed "military" wool blankets on the market - by far!

If you're like me, you've gotten suckered by other companies claiming to have "real" military surplus wool blankets like the ones you were issued when you were in the military, only to be seriously disappointed when they arrive and you find that they are cheapo crap made in India that smell like dog farts and fall apart after a washing or two. Well, you can rest assured that the blankets sold by KS are NOT those pieces of junk! These are real wool-polyester blend blankets, high-quality stuff, large and well-made, and worth every penny. Based on the reviews here, I bought two, one for each of my vehicles, and was very pleased when I received them. No funky smell, no danger of these falling apart in the wash. I will buy more of these soon. Thumbs up, KS! Review by Scott in Atlanta (Posted on 10/26/2016)

This is my 2nd French OD wool blanket I ordered at Keepshooting.com. I also have the orange colored disaster blanket, as well as US Army wool and Polish wool blankets. These French are the biggest, softest of them all. Color is more pine forest than Olive Drab.
The quality is outstanding.29 dollars is a steal.

I ordered 2 (one for each vehicle) for emergency use over the winter.
Both were in good, used but useable condition and without defects.
One did have a sewn on boarder while the other didn't.
No mothballs smell but they did have a warehouse smell.
They were not as large (6" each way) as listed, probably from being laundered after use.
It might sound like I am unhappy, I'm quite happy.
They are thick, soft and a large blanket that should serve me well for years!

I bought two and one is with-out flaw and is clean and bundled with two straps. I took the other one to have a hem repaired, about two feet of stitching was loose, hopefully it will be as good as new when I get it back without an over-charge. Review by Duncan (Posted on 12/24/2015)

I agree with all the other reviewers, who are glowing over this high-value product. I'm glad I bought two. That way, one can serve as a blanket and the other can be transformed into an article of winter clothing. Review by Raphael (Posted on 11/16/2015)

Same quality(no joke) as a $200 LL Bean blanket. Thick, comfortable (on my bare legs) and well made. I am 6'2" and it wrapped me up like a burrito. I could not believe it. I have ordered a second blanket just in case a blood relative steals this one! Review by Jim (Posted on 10/18/2015)

I have received several of these blankets. Most are more of a forest green, only one was closer to olive. Also, there is some variation in size. One was slightly smaller than the described dimensions, the others were slightly larger. Most appear to be near-new. Those that show wear (tags have obviously been washed multiple times) are still in very good to excellent condition. All are thick with lots of insulating loft. While they have some weight to them, given their size and thickness, it isn't bad.. I think these are the best current value in the world of surplus goods. I may part with some of them as Christmas gifts... but it will be difficult to let them go! Review by W. Crow (Posted on 10/10/2015)

I read the reviews on these wool blankets and decided to pull the trigger and get one. I was going to purchase a US Army Surplus wool blanket, but got this one instead. I am very happy I did. The blanket arrived in perfect condition, sealed in plastic. It appeared unused and had no odors. As the other reviewers have stated the blanket is thick and large, easily fitting a queen size bed. It is a rich dark pine color. I could not be happier with the quality of this blanket. I also bought another one before they sold out! A Super deal! Review by James (Posted on 10/6/2015)

Got my 2nd French blanket and it looks to be unissued. This is a great blanket and great deal! This one had the the letters CM in one corner and number 87 in the other corner my 1st blanket was just OD green with no lettering. These are plush and big and not scratchy at all. I have already placed another order for more these are wonderful blankets. Thanks KS Review by Philip (Posted on 9/29/2015)

I have been waiting for KS to get another quality wool blanket in stock. This blanket fits the bill. It is very sizable-large. It is VERY thick. The color OD is perfect. Mine came in perfect condition. It appears unissued. There was no rough odor to this blanket either. I didn't even wash it, nor did I have to "air it out". I am extremely pleased with this blanket. Unbeatable quality for the price. Order yourself some of the camo straps to keep it rolled up for storage. Great product. Review by Justin (Posted on 9/21/2015)

I purchased one of these blankets, and was so happy with the quality I immediately purchased another. Both blankets appear to be new, are made of soft and nicely thick wool, and are large in size. The wool is not as soft and itch free as merino wool, but it is still softer than other surplus wool items I've owned.

One blanket had "88" embroidered on to one corner in red, and the other was clean. Both smelled like typical surplus items, but after a wash on gentle and an air dry, they are good to go. Highly recommended!

Super nice heavy weight wool
Value
Quality

These blankets are super soft and heavy weight, over five pounds. Some have markings of "CM", "BC" and "81". In researching them I found they may have been produced in 60s-70s time frame. The two I bought do not appear to be used at all. These are much better than the old US military itchy scratchy blankets I had in the Navy. Great to throw in the trunk or even on the bed under the spread this winter. Price is great, I plan on ordering a few more before they are sold out. Can't go wrong with natural wool!

So, the blanket I received is brand new, still has tags on it. Made in France 1998. The edges of mine are covered in a nylon webbing sewn over to keep the wool from unraveling. Gonna have plenty of uses for this thick comfy blanket!

Washed it once in Woolite and fabric softener, then laid out to dry.
