Evonna. Blanket. June 06th , 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
