These blankets were produced over 50 years ago by Swiss craftsmen and later stored in the Alps in military depot mountain cave systems. The result is the blankets when sold to us were in as good of a condition today as they were when they were finished by the original manufacturer.
There was such pride taken in the construction of these Swiss wool blankets that the craftsman who made the blanket sews their initials and year and manufacturer into each blanket. Taking a look at how the Swiss Cross was added on top of each of the red bands, you will see the white cross was felted into the wool, a time consuming method that provides a superior look and feel. You will not find this level of skill or care in any other military wool blanket.

The blanket is soft (as soft as wool can be). 10 of 10
The size is just ok. 8 of 10 (I'm 5' 10" 200#)

Unused condition w/ 68W on a corner. 10 of 10
My issue is, it's not very thick so it's not very warm. 5 of 10
I like my green french blanket (from Keepshooting) much more because of it's size and weight. If the Swiss had used the same quality and materials with the size and thickness of the French...
THAT would easily be a blanket worth the $60 I spent.
I wouldn't return it if I could. It is interesting and nice looking. It's just not a piece I would ever say "That was $60 well spent!".
