Vintage horsefly blanket
To anyone who has been around horses (or horseflies), the image speaks for itself.
Modern versions seem to be made of plastic or fabric. I found a vintage one for sale on eBay made of leather. This one appeared to be made of coarse string or yarn. In the pre-plastic era this would probably be cooler than a fabric blanket.
