    • Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing, blankets and throws for over 180 years. The company got its start in 1830 when John Rich, an immigrant from England, built his first woolen mill in Plum Run, Pennsylvania. Rich would visit the lumber camps that dotted the area and sell his woolen fabric, socks , coverlets, and yarn from a mule cart. By 1845, he built a new mill a couple of miles up the road next to Chatham Run, which provided a steadier source of water. That building exists today as part of the group of buildings, homes, and community establishments that have become Woolrich, Pennsylvania. Rich could certainly not have imagined that his little woolen mill (created not long after the Revolutionary War) would go on to experience the Civil War, the Great Depression, two world wars, and the end of the Cold War. It would witness the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in America, the amazing growth of American cities, and the telecommunications revolution. Legend has it that Woolrich was the first company to use a zipper in men's trousers. Technological developments, new production methods, and changing American lifestyles led to new products for all types of outdoor activities--all-wool bathing suits and wool golf knickers joined rugged coats for hunters and trappers. As America took to the roads in the early 1930's, Woolrich added automobile robes and steamer rugs for the more mobile society. Woolrich was contracted by the government to outfit Admiral Byrd's expedition to Antarctica in 1939, 1940, and 1941. Eventually, the introduction of new high-tech materials allowed Woolrich to enhance the performance of its outdoor wear, meeting the needs of a new generation of enthusiasts. Traditional fabrics like wool and cotton teamed up with man-made fibers to create clothing that our customers could rely on for everything from a backpacking trip to a leisurely stroll. Today the little village of Woolrich is still headquarters for the company, but the business has grown to a worldwide lifestyle company.The company that provided blankets to the Union soldiers in the Civil War today keeps folks warm under its wonderful throws as they cuddle up by the fireplace. What has not changed in all those years is Woolrich's commitment to quality. Civil War blankets were made by Woolrich and supplied to troops from 1861 to 1865. Today, historical groups and movie studios purchase bolts of Woolrich fabric to create authentic uniforms and blankets for re-enactments. Woven in the same Woolrich Mill that created the originals, these Civil War blankets are a unique chance to own and enjoy a piece of American history. They boast selvage sides and over-seamed ends.

      If you're looking at a Woolrich blanket called the "Gettysburg," you're obviously a serious traditionalist. The Gettysburg makes no apologies for being a solid, scratchy wool blanket evocative of the Civil War era. I don't know if it's quite big enough to keep your horse warm on a cold winter night, but it's tasteful in appearance and feels just fine as a throw on our sofa.

      Overstock.com used to offer discount prices but this same blanket is the same price at Woolrich. There is not any added value in purchasing it from Overstock.com.
