I am working with a woolen mill (Faribault Woolen Mill) on another project, and they told me about a project they took on a few years ago at the request of the veteran community: "Can you re-make the blanket that I was issued when I was in the hospital?" Apparently the veterans remembered those crème wool blankets they were issued when recovering, and wanted a new one to take home.

With this blanket in production, they were told by other veterans "my blanket was green, not white - what about us?" So they dusted off the specs (yes, they were a supplier in WWI and WWI) and here is the green Medical Corps blanket.

These are probably in the area of "reproduction" items, but when made by the original maker to the original spec, it may fall onto it's own class of a "re-issued" item. These are not cheap, but appear to be a very high quality product with the proper markings. I have suggested that they add the proper QM oilcloth tag to the blanket, and that change is under consideration.
I thought the Forum members might want to be aware of this item - while not a WWII dated, this can offer an original pattern blanket that you can use without fear of ruining an original artifact. I'm ordering a crème one to wrap up in front of the fireplace on these cold Colorado nights...
