Evonna. Blanket. June 06th , 2017.
In my own heart, I knew how much my father had always dreaded death and his ultimate passage into unknown realms. Once this inevitable moment was upon him, it was impossible for Dad to conceal his terror any longer. I felt certain what we`d seen on my father`s face was simply a lifetime of fear at last releasing itself; though realizing this brought little solace. I, too, felt overwhelmed at this moment, imagining what the future would be like as I struggled to make peace with this final horrific scene, and somehow bring comfort to my family in the days and years ahead.
A duvet is a form of comforter usually filled with feathers, but can also be fiber filled. A duvet can be thicker than most blankets and can be used instead of a blanket. A duvet will usually come with a cover which can add to the cost. This cover is recommended because it can be removed and washed on a weekly basis with your bed sheets. These covers are available in many colors and designs to match the décor of your bedroom.
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.
Another thing to consider when purchasing a snuggle blanket is its material. Today, organic materials are available in the market. One of the popular ones would be Egyptian cotton, known to have a superb cotton quality. Most blankets use cotton, but there are also other fabric used just like wool. Wool can also produce a soft blanket which is made from quality animal hair. One snuggle blanket that stands out is the Mohair blanket which uses the material of spun Angora goats hair. However, it should only be washed by dry cleaners and should never be washed by hand or washing machine.
The Transition Blanket proved to be the generous purveyor of the strength and comfort we all needed to find. Its miraculous powers soon transformed our family`s experience from one of tragedy and suffering into an experience of profound healing and peaceful acceptance. Yet this miracle, like this very special blanket, took a while to unfold... Our ultimate opening to the inevitable death process may represent one of life`s richest experiences.
