Many people are led to believe that the points stood for the number of beaver pelts that were required to obtain the blanket. Points ranged from 1 to 6, increasing by halves depending upon the size and weight of the blanket.
A 4 Point required 4 pelts where as an 8 Point required 8 pelts. Each blanket was graded as to weight and size using a point system. The number of points represented the overall finished size of the blanket, not its value in terms of beaver pelts. A 4 Point is a Twin, a 6 Point is a Queen, and an 8 Point is a King Size.
