I'm making a blanket but what do I use?

Alright so now that we all know which clan we belong to, who we're supposed to enemies with, and who that lucky lady or gent will be; lets make an actual blanket! What you will need to make a blanket depends on what you want to use. Before colonial contact with the Russians in the 1700-1800s Native (button blankets) "robes were made of mountain goat wool and cedar warps." After colonial contact Native Americans traded with the Hudson Bay Company. During the fur trade; in exchange for sea otter fur; the natives would receive blankets, glass beads and Mother-of-pearl, dentalium and abalone shells.
