Evonna. Blanket. June 09th , 2017.
Usually made of a lightweight and eco-friendly material such as organic cotton, fleece, flannel, muslin and bamboo, receiving blankets have either a square or rectangular shape and are mostly used in hospitals. Being quite thin, they can also be layered with other kinds of blanket. Needless to say, these all-purpose blankets are a staple in a newborn`s world.
And to add to that, their blankets are not even subject to basic hygiene, some blankets sent for testing have been discovered to have everything from mucus, teardrops, and lipstick to bodily fluids that I will allow you to imagine on your own. Given this would you really like to use the airline blanket offered anyway? I guess not!
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.
The most important aspect to factor in: what will you use the blanket for? Are you looking for a waterproof picnic blanket, a blanket for your dog or are you going out camping and hiking for a long period of time? Some waterproof blankets are specifically made to cover yourself. Which means they will have soft outer layers on both sides while other blankets are made for activities such as a picnic, for people to sit on. Those blankets will have a waterproof layer on the bottom side. Waterproof blankets made for camping will often be heavier as they require more durable and warmer materials, such as fleece or down.
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.
