    I can get used/surplus army green and gray heavy wool blankets for about 20 bucks each here in Fayetteville, and I still need to send you a boss any way

    Dave let me have your mailing address and I'll send you some cash for a couple or maybe three of those blankets. Thank you most kindly, sir!

    Green and grey are fine, if there were any blue blankets that would be a major plus....But green and grey are fine

    If you aren't set on 100% wool, and have a Harbor Freight nearby, they have some wool polyester blend blankets.

    Another place to look is fabric.com for bolts of wool.
    I like swords.

    I'm not in any big rush, my main project is an 11th century tunic I've been wanting to *try* to replicate from the Bayeux embroidery. It will not be 100% authentic but I want to get close....Someone once told me that wool blankets were a good source of material for this.
