This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

The world's coziest blankies. Often imitated, never duplicated.

Perfect for the cottage, the cabin and the spare bedroom.

Available with red, green, gold, indigo or cream sheets.

Singles and Doubles each have the proper number of points on the side.

**EDIT #2**

These seem to have struck a sentimental note. So I've done some sofas to go with them:

Awsome. Now if somebody would make the coat that is made from that blanket we could have Alaskan sims or some 16/1700's explorer sims.

I think they are great. I am curious about the side, just above the stripes...is that suppose to be a logo?

Those are their points - each size blanket has an associated number of "points". (Blanket size only - not the rumoured "Value in beaver pelts").

Those interested in the history of the blankets might like to take a boo at:

And if you'd like sofas to go with your bedding, I just uploaded a bunch here:

Thank you infamy! These bring back the sweetest memories. My grandfather used to get them on fishing trips to Canada. They are the best blankets - herloons, actually. I'm downloading two

Oops! Heirlooms....er...not "herloons" ...(I just blew a mouthful of coffee at the screen trying to grock that one - female birds maybe? Ok, it's 6:00 in the morning, I was up late playing the Sims,...)

Wonderful...will be great for my boy sims that want a more mature bedroom than spaceships or primary colors!

Thank you so much for creating these blankets. They're going to look great in a log cabin that I built for my game. I'm excited about the fact that I have curtains that pick up the textures of all the bedding that I have. Now I'll have matching curtains to these woobies!

I have a real Hudson Bay blanket that was kept at my family's cottage for many years. I believe it's at least 60 years old.

Thanks again!

Awww and just when I pulled my old Hudsons out for the season.
Mine date back to the 40's and 50's and are still hanging in there.
Thankfully my sims don't have to wash theirs ever.
I get to enjoy next weekend hand washing mine and laying them out in the sun room to dry. But I love them so!
