This military surplus wool blanket is oversized, heavy and very warm even when wet. Perfect for hunting camps, cabins, emergencies, and at home!

We believe it is 100% wool but there is no fiber content label to verify. We hear that over the years, these blankets ranged from 100% virgin wool to a blend of virgin and reprocessed wool. Needless to say, the East German soldiers got what they got and didn’t ask questions like we do today!

Half the fun of owning military surplus is the history behind it. The ‘BWB-Bruckmuhl’ on the main label is short for ‘Bayrische Wolldeckenfabrik Bruckmühl’ which is German for ‘Bavarian Wool Blanket Factory Bruckmühl’. The ‘Mitin’ on another tag is the chemical used in the wool’s dye bath making the blanket “dauernd mottenecht” or “permanently mothproof”.

Here is an auto-generated translation of the wool blanket factory’s history in the town of Bruckmühl, Germany:

Wool Blanket Factory Bruckmühl
In 1898, a mill at Heufeld became the Loden and Wolldeckenfabrik. A lively construction activity began on the site, the business flourished. Since 1913, the area has been called Bavarian Wool Blanket Factory Bruckmühl. The largest industrial company in the community developed; over 800 people found after the 2nd World War work there. The good development of the factory contributed decisively to the growth of Bruckmühl. In 1983, the plant had to be closed.
