Swiss Army Blanket


Three Pixie Lane

I have been looking for a Swiss Army Blanket for a display.  Unfortunately, they are in high demand and are costly.  The lowest price I have found for an original blanket is $140 at the European Market.   Sundance has them for $298.  You can also find them at etsy and on eBay.  Some have used their blankets to make pillows, backpacks or other accessories.

After some searching, I ordered a reproduction Swiss Army Blanket from Gr8gear.com for $21.99!  That's right...$21.99.  It is a new 100% wool blanket with the exact red stripe and cross as the original!  I like nice things, but I also like nice prices!  Sometimes, saving for an original is worth it, but in this case, the repro will do just fine!

Stay tuned to see what I do with my Swiss Army Blanket!


Thanks for stopping by!

We had those when I was growing up and I'm so bummed we got rid of them. I looked for one when I was doing my son's room and I couldn't believe how expensive they are now!

I can't wait to see what you do with it! I love deals like the one you just got. Don't you want to just stick your tongue out and say "Neener, neener, neener!" to the person that was trying to sell theres for so much more? With yours being a reproduction and new it will probably be in better shape anyway.

Love your site! Great ideas and photos. As the owner of EuropeanMarket.US, just want to let your followers know that our Swiss Army blankets are the real deal. Woven in Switzerland and actually used by the Swiss military. Ours are vintage—all made in the 1930s-early '50s. One cool feature is they showcase the initials of the weaver and the year made. Several also sport the metal disc from the Swiss Army. All in excellent condition. If you know the Swiss or have been to Switzerland, they make things to last. Last month, I was in a Swiss friend's home that was built in 1710. They don't cut corners. So, if you want an authentic Swiss Army blanket, we'd love for you to take a look.
