A lightweight, non-woven blanket engineered by a South Carolina company is keeping disaster victims dry and warm from the Gulf Coast to the mountains of Pakistan to the tsunami-ravaged areas of Southeast Asia.
The blanket developed by the Polymer Group is warmer than traditional blankets woven of cotton or wool. One side is soft and provides comfort next to the body; the other has a backing to provide a barrier from moisture, dirt and debris.Oops--spoke too soon. A great survival product that we can't have:
The Polymer Group itself has donated tens of thousands of the blankets, which are not for sale to the general public.
Charity is a great thing, but would you sell us some, please? Pretty please?
