Evonna. Blanket. June 09th , 2017.
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.
There are snuggle blankets for children which comes in small sizes. They are usually softer because of the materials used. Amongst the most famous blanket in the market today is the Korean blanket. They are made from very soft fabric which is perfect for small kids. It is so soft that a lot of people think it is made from the spin fur of mink. However, those are just fiction. In reality, the fabric of Korean blanket is synthetic acrylic cloth. What makes it soft is the thread count and superior craftsmanship.
You need to know how big the blanket has to be. A picnic with the whole family and kids will have to be bigger than a blanket you`re bringing outdoors with you to read a book by yourself. This matters for any other situation where you can have different sizes (for example, camping and sleeping alone or with a partner, a blanket for your pet,...). Just like the thickness of a blanket, the size will have an impact on its weight, space and how easy it is to fold.
While a high thread count may matter in the softness of a snuggle blanket, it is not really the key aspect you would be looking for in a quality blanket. It is true, though, that soft blanket do have high thread count. But what really matters is that the sheets are made out of superior materials. Cotton, wool, and other fabric are being rolled into yearn before they are created into blankets. Basically, quality yarn is what you should look for to make sure that the blanket is supple.
I have spent my entire adult life in a career of service, helping people in difficult life situations. As a licensed psychologist, I`ve worked with thousands of individuals over the years. I am a seasoned alternative healer as well, primarily in shamanic practices, having received formal training and intense individual instruction from powerful medicine people. I teach shamanic classes on death and dying. I`m a certified Reiki master and have been actively merging my shamanic training with Reiki disciplines for ten years. Yet none of this extensive experience had fully prepared me for this time when I would be called to usher my own family through the gates.
