Default Low cost %100 wool blanket?

Been looking around and Pendleton Wool seems to have the least expensive wool blanket with any sort of real reputation.


Anyone have experience between say --Hudson Bay--, --Pendleton--, --Faribaultmill--?

If Pendleton is lowest cost, is it really lowest quality. I here Hudson Bay is the raining king, but how much below if at all is Pendleton?

Pendleton is the only one I'm familiar with. They have had an excellent reputation for years and years.

All three have been very good quality. I suppose there might be differences in the thickness of the wool today. But I'm allergic to wool, so I haven't looked at any in stores lately. I just know about the blankets we have in our family.

I am familar with Pendelton and the Fabrio...
I have a blanket made by Fabrio that is washable and light weight that I love. They are all three great products I think.

Woolrich is another good brand for wool products.

Hudson Bay and Pendleton are both top of the line for wool blankets... I would not consider them to be low cost. I have blankets made by both companies , and have been in use for 40 years and will go another 40 as they both look like the day I got them. If you are looking to use for a quilt batting , its a cheaper option to buy wool batting.

I live near a Pendleton factory and go snag some of their mill ends often. I'm very happy with the quality. I'm surprised to find that anyone thinks of Pendleton as low quality.

I promised myself that when I have my own house I would buy a Hudson Bay Blanket. I have a house 5 years now, but kids are little, dogs are crazy and I just do not have that much money right now, BUT if I did, I would buy the Bay blanket. It's a classic! However, every time we go back home to Canada, I go to the local Bay and admire them. One of these days I am going to snap and buy one. Good luck choosing!
