"Grandmother has learned the service that Nashua Woolnap Blankets give. She has tested these pure cotton blankets under every condition. She knows they are strong; they are durable; they wash well; moths will not touch them; they possess heat-retaining qualities equal to any blanket. And all this at a reasonable price.
Nashua Woolnap Blankets
of Pure Cotton
Keep You Warm
Nashua Woolnap Blankets are warm because they are woven of Nature's principles. Nature covers her little people with blankets of fur or feathers to protect them from cold and storm. These blankets have no warmth in themselves. It is the tiny imprisoned air-cells between the fibers which bodily heat in and keep cold out.
So Nashua Woolnap Blankets are woven with the long, straight fibre of cotton crinkled to give a deep cushioned nap. This soft nap is filled with the same countless air-cells necessary to hold in the warmth and keep the cold out.
There is a Nashua Woolnap for every use and kind of bed - including regular plain blankets, decorative plaids, and durable tans and grays for the boys or for camping. For double beds we recommend 72 by 84 inch size; for three-quarter and twin beds we suggest 66 by 84, or 66 by 80 inches. The crib blankets are 36 by 50 inches.
Nashua Woolnap Blankets are thoroughly inspected throughout every process of manufacture. Individually wrapped, they reach you in perfect condition. They may be washed at home with perfect satisfaction. However, we recommend that you save time, labor and coal by sending them to a well-equipped, up-to-date laundry.
