Blankets

It is important to choose the right fabric for your blankets to get the most comfort and warmth. The fabric you choose should be based on your preferences including your sleeping requirements, your preferred material, and allergy concerns. 

  • Choose the right fabric for your blanket
    • Cotton
      Cotton can be lightweight enough to use for summer sleep or heavy enough for winter use. The best qualities of cotton are its breathability and softness which enhances your comfort.

    • Wool
      Wool is often used to provide warmth and insulate, especially during the colder winter months. Wool can also be lightweight and be used in the summer months as it helps dissipate moisture throughout the night. Some wool can be itchy, but most modern wool blankets are smooth, lightweight and a good option for year-round comfort.

    • Fleece
      Fleece is made from polyester, so it’s affordable and easy to wash. Cosy and not too heavy, a fleece blanket adds a fluffy layer of warmth to your bed. 

    • Mink Blankets
      Mink blankets are plush, luxurious and silky soft. The typical make-up of a mink blanket is 85% acrylic and 15% polyester. Not only are mink blankets the softest on the market, but they are of the highest quality and they keep their softness and vibrancy through the years of use and laundering.

    • Acrylic
      Acrylic blankets are made from synthetic fibres made from a polymer. They are lightweight, soft and warm with a wool-like feel. Acrylic fibres are resilient and long lasting. They also don’t accumulate dust mites and other allergy irritants, making them suitable for people who suffer from allergies. 

  • What about the weave of your blanket?

    Along with different fabrics, blankets also have different weaves that provide various levels of warmth and weight.

    • Thermal
      Generally found in cotton blankets, a thermal weave is loose, letting air circulate easily. These lightweight blankets are good for the summer months.

    • Knit
      Cosy knit blankets are heavy and warm. You’ll usually find these made from wool or synthetic materials. They are suitable for the colder winter months.

    • Quilted
      Down blankets are typically quilted to keep the down or down substitute from shifting inside the blanket. This provides great insulation and maximum warmth.

    • Conventional
      The typical blanket weave is very tight and close, creating excellent insulation for body heat.
  • Taking care of your blanket

    It is important to take good care of your blanket to maintain its colour and texture. 

    • Before you wash your blankets
      Shake the blanket outside to remove excess dust and loose dirt. 

    • Washing blankets
      While most cotton blankets and those made from synthetics can be washed in the machine; it is still important to check the labels to be sure.
