My father purchased three wool blankets from a salesperson selling blankets made at Minnesota Woolen Mills. One white with stripes of different colors, one red with black stripes, one, orange with light orange stripes. I was about seven at the time. Still use the orange on our spare bed in the guest room.

I was one of four children.

The white was for my parents, the red for my two brothers, the orange for my sister and myself.
