Receiving blankets are definitely the most versatile type of baby blanket because they are highly multi-functional and can be used for almost any purpose, including a play mat, burp cloth, swaddling blanket, breastfeeding cover and more. However, they are designed specifically to receive the baby at his birth.
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.
There are a wide range of blankets on the market today. The most common ones are wool, cotton, poly cotton blend and fleece. There are also a number of luxury blankets available and they are silk, cashmere and chenille. We learned quite a lot about wool blankets in my last article. Now I will explain the composition of other blankets available in the marketplace today and help you in your search for a blanket or blankets that will satisfy all your bedroom needs.
You can personalize these blankets in a lot of ways. If you want to keep it simple, you can monogram or embroider the baby`s name on the blanket. You can also include a message if you want to. For instance, you can add a message like `You`re such a blessing`. At times, people don`t like putting a long message on the blanket. In this case, the baby`s name or a descriptive word can be used. It`s common to find blankets having a message like `Naughty Amanda` or `Pretty Jean` or `Sweet Krista`.
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.
