Poly cotton blend blankets offer a durable blanket that can keep you warm in the cold months, but can still breathe to allow air to flow through in the warm months. The blend of fibers will prevent shrinkage and pilling when washed and it will still maintain its shape. Poly cotton blankets are very reasonable as far as cost.

We will start with cotton blankets. Cotton has been around for thousands of years and is a major player in all bedding. Using cotton alone for a blanket really didn't work well because it will not stand up to frequent washings. When synthetics were discovered it was decided to blend them with the cotton to add strength and durability for a better blanket. Fibers like polyester and acrylic will improve a cotton blanket, especially if you are looking for a blanket that will not wrinkle very much and can be washed quite often. But if you have allergies or sensitive skin a 100% cotton blanket would be better for you. For a heavier cotton blanket you should look for a woven cotton blanket in a herringbone mesh pattern or a basket weave pattern to keep you warm and will still be breathable and soft.

Finally the electric blanket is great for those very cold months. You can adjust the temperature to any level of warmth that you need. The new electric blankets are very light in weight and have conductive tape for a more even heat instead of wires. The larger electric blankets have duel controls for either side to provide comfort for two people. They are washable, but you must follow the washing instructions very carefully.

A fleece blanket is environmentally friendly and is blended with polyester. The polyester used for this blend is made from PET "polyethylene terephthalate". PET is a resin that is recycled from soda bottles and used to make synthetic fibers. The fleece blanket is very soft and will keep you warm. Fleece also works just like wool when it comes to wicking away moisture from your body.

Swaddling blankets are designed to wrap babies tightly, making them feel like they are still in mother's tummy. These blankets are quite similar to security blankets in the terms of functionality, with the only difference that they come with Velcro fasteners that help you swaddle your newborn quickly and easily.

The custom blanket comes in 3 different sizes - the small blanket is perfect for cots and small beds, the medium ideal for use as a travel blanket or a lap blanket to keep warm and comfortable while watching TV. The large custom blanket is especially beneficial for use on beds and offers the greatest printing options because it can include a photo montage consisting of virtually any number of photos and other elements.

Down blankets or down comforters are made with layers of fine feathers from ducks and geese. Down has an excellent thermal quality and is light-weight. The density of down will determine the amount of warmth. Some down comforters claim that they are washable, but the feathers can clump together when exposed to moisture and are susceptible to mildew. The feathers can also retain odors. It is highly recommended that you have the comforter professionally cleaned.
