"Nashua Woolnap Blankets
of Pure Cotton
Keep You Warm

Setting-Up Exercises

A goo night's sleep is the foundation of health. To sleep well, one must have warm bed-covering. Nashua Woolnap Blankets supply this need. They are very warm, with every cotton fibre crinckled so that the soft nap has countless tiny spaces of imprisoned air, holding in the bodily heat and holding out the cold. That is exactly the same principle which Nature uses to keep her children of the field and forest from freezing. Their blankets of fur or feathers would have no warmth without the imprisoned air confined between feathers or furry fibres.

Nashua Woolnap Blankets are strong. Moths will not touch them. They come in attractive patters, in sizes to fit any bed, and at a price which will please you. Identify by the woven label and printed ticket.

'Nature's Blankets' (free upon request) tells how blankets keep you warm and how to wash and care for blankets. The doll blanket shown in the illustration, size 16 x 20 inches, sent for 20 cents in stamps or coin, white with pink or blue borders, or blue plaid as preferred."
