Just finished this today. I had bought a four-point Whitney blanket a while back it had some moth holes in it so it was pretty cheap and I didn't mind cutting it up. It's a Hawken length at right about 46 inches. I gave it a 12 piece of leather on the muzzle end for protection and a 2 1/2 cuff on the open end. I think I can get two more out of the blanket. I have a couple of friends that have asked for some I did tell then however I get the one with the goodies on it, the label, and the points.

Some folks complain that wool holds moisture and will rust your gun but I’ve used mine in all sorts of weather closer to fifty then forty years with out trouble
I suppose any scabbard or case will cause a gun to rust if they're left in too long.
To be honest these scabbards are as much for show as they are for protection.
If I use this scabbard for hunting it would get left in the truck when I get to my spot.
I have an oilcloth one that I use when I'm hunting the islands on the Mississippi river and I'm going in by canoe.
