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.
