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.
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.
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.
