In the late 1700s, wool blankets were so important to comfort and survival that they were used as a form of currency in trading between trappers and Native Americans. Beaver pelts were exchanged for blankets through the Hudson's Bay Company and its outposts throughout Northern Canada.

Today Woolrich offers Hudson's Bay Point Blankets under the official license of the historic Hudson's Bay Company. Our Hudson's Bay Point Blankets retain the authentic 100% wool quality that has made these blankets legendary. Like those sold in the 18th century, today's blankets are made in England with wool blended from sources in England, Wales, New Zealand, and India. Each type of wool is selected for qualities that help create a water-resistant, soft, warm, and strong final product. The wool is dyed before it is spun and then air- and sun-dried to brighten the colors. These blankets warm the interior of any home, cabin, or cottage. They will keep you and your guests warm and cozy on the coldest nights, just like they've kept generations of trappers, hunters, fur traders, and Native Americans warm and comfortable. 100% wool. Imported. Dry clean. 42" x 70".

History of the Authentic Hudson Bay Point Blanket:

A Hudson's Bay point blanket is a type of wool blanket traded by the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) in western British North America and the United States during the 18th century and 19th century. The blankets were typically traded to First Nations and Native Americans in exchange for beaver pelts.

In the point system, a blanket of higher point value would supposedly be larger and warmer. A common misconception is that each point indicated a quantity of beaver pelts or Hudson's Bay Company money. Blankets varied in color and design. 

The current Hudson Bay Point Blanket seal is shown above and has been the seal "label" since May 2002.  The seal has been on the Hudson Bay Point Blankets since 1890, at that time other companies and competitors started producing similar wool blankets.  The Hudson Bay Blanket seal is helpful for collectors in determining the age of a Hudson Bay Blanket.
