  • 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.

    Well, okay, I wondered when I opened the package, How can it be warm when it's this light and comfortable? I suppose there were magical creatures involved in making my blanket, but I bet the quality has more to do with the craftsmanship of those who fleeced the lambs and wove their wool into a companion with which I will never part. Thanks, Woolrich!

    This is a beautifully made thick, wool blanket. It has a traditional army blanket look, but with a much softer feel. Love that it's made from recycled wool. Definitely recommend this blanket!
