A blanket is a large piece of soft cloth. The item is typically used to keep warm, while sleeping or lying down. A blanket traps the radiant heat from the user's body; instead of dissipating into the air, it warms the user. It also protects against heat being lost by the processes of convection.

    Value of a Witney Point wool blanket?

    I've had this for a few years now, and have not used it outside one cold camping trip....before I got some better down filled bags for winter.... It is a 4 point blanket, bigger than a Queen, smaller than a King, at least I think it's smaller than a King lol. Pictures taken at my apartment's...

    Favorite Emergency Blankets?

    I've been going through my emergency kits and I've run into my old olive green GI wool blankets. It made me wonder what everybody else keeps in their kits. Do you guys use blankets and sleeping bags, just one of the two, or something else? Any favorite materials other than down or wool?
