Evonna. Blanket. June 09th , 2017.
Unfortunately, "pat" religious dogma that often preempts personal questioning and introspection can never substitute for a gentle, truly meaningful, and deeply explored experience when the end of life draws near. Unsupported by ancient beliefs, the powerful death rituals and ceremonies that once safely guided our forbears into the afterlife, how might we better prepare our "modern" selves for this inevitable end-of-life experience? What can we expect and what should we believe? Where is our roadmap? Perhaps the Transition Blanket had come to show us the way...
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.
Unlike receiving blankets, swaddling blankets are often made of muslin, larger in size and have a square shape. Not only they help your little one stay calm and relaxed but also they prevent him from scratching face with his little nails. Some varieties of swaddling blankets even allow you to change diapers without fully un-wrapping the baby.
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`.
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.
