Silk blankets usually have a satin outer shell and are filled with high quality silk fibers. They are very fluffy, soft, smooth and comfortable. These blankets are elegant and are commonly used as baby blankets. They are a great choice to give as a present to a friend who just had a baby. If you are looking for one that is washable then look for 100% mulberry silk floss. You can also purchase a silk quilt. This product should be puffy, odor free and quite durable.
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.
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.
Parents treasure presents personalized in the name of the baby for a long period of time. The baby tends to keep the present forever as well. For just a few extra dollars, the present becomes a souvenir item that can`t be parted with easily. You don`t have to wonder why most people try to personalize the presents given one way or another.
Chenille blankets are made from rayon, cotton, acrylic and a number of other materials. Chenille refers to the way the fabric is woven. Small lengths of filament are bound into two or more pieces of strong yarn. The short pieces give the chenille a soft and luxurious pile. It is recommended that you have this blanket professionally cleaned. If hand or machine washed and want to machine dry, use low heat or lay flat to prevent stretching because it is a heavy material.
