Whitney blankets are probably not what you want m8, proper ones are worth a fortune to fur trade era types.

Try your local charity shop, if you ask very nicely they should be able to save them for you (instead of dumping them as they don't seem to think there is a market for them).

However they will be the wrong sort of wool, so unless you are looking for second-hand wool for ethical reasons spend £20 with one of the merchants and get something more appropriate.

Oh crikey, some else that quotes Pam Ayres!!! I can't pass a flit gun without saying:

'My mother 'ad a flit gun, it was not devoid of charm...A bit o' flit, flew out of it, the rest shot up er arm!'

ahem....re blanketing, I'm sure Bernie had some nice thick blanketing, have you tried him? (oh and from us WW2 types, please don't cut up the CC41 utility one either!!!)
