"Blanketing the Country
Nashua Woolnap Blankets have gone into millions of homes. You have probably slept under many a pair and noted their soft warmth without realizing that they were the Nashua Mfz. Co.'s Woolnap Blankets. The deep, springy nap is woven by the Nashua process so that each crinkly cotton thread holds in the bodily heat within tiny spaces of imprisioned air. This is adopting Nature's own way of keeping her little people warm; for wool, fur, feathers, cotton have no warmth in themselves. They are containers for tiny air cells which hold in the bodily heat and keep the animals from freezing.
