As described by Genesee River

A four point Witney wool blanket. These “pointed blankets,” first produced in Witney, Oxfordshire, were hugely popular with the Native Americans. During the mid-1700s French weavers developed a “point” system to indicate the final size of the blanket. These were traded in a range of one to four points, in increments of half-points. A common misconception is that each point indicated a quantity of beaver pelts. The number of points represented the overall finished size of the blanket.
