If you’re celebrating 180 years of service as a perennial favorite, you must be doing something right. Woolrich’s combination of quality, great customer service and unique products keep us coming back for more and this time it’s for their Civil War Cavalry Blanket ($120). Woolrich supplied these same blankets to the troops from 1861-1865 and they are made in the same factory today as the original blankets. In fact, the fabric is so authentic that it is not uncommon to have movie studios use it to make uniforms and props for films of that time. The blanket is a unique piece of history updated (used loosely) for modern-day use. At 66” by 80” it’s just the right size to be useful without being overwhelming.
