Silk blankets usually have a satin outer shell and are filled with high quality silk fibers. They are very fluffy, soft, smooth and comfortable. These blankets are elegant and are commonly used as baby blankets. They are a great choice to give as a present to a friend who just had a baby. If you are looking for one that is washable then look for 100% mulberry silk floss. You can also purchase a silk quilt. This product should be puffy, odor free and quite durable.
Cashmere blankets are derived from the wool of domesticated cashmere goats. The wool is especially soft and is a light weight downy fabric. Cashmere blankets will keep you very warm but require special care. It is recommended that you have them professionally cleaned. This blanket is very luxurious and can be worth the time and care you put into it, and is on the high side as far as cost.
Swaddling blankets are designed to wrap babies tightly, making them feel like they are still in mother`s tummy. These blankets are quite similar to security blankets in the terms of functionality, with the only difference that they come with Velcro fasteners that help you swaddle your newborn quickly and easily.
Ideally, the snuggle blanket you would be looking for is of a soft kind. If this is your first time to shop for a blanket, then you might want to visit your local store first. It is important that you feel the material first so you will know just how soft and comfortable it is. Otherwise, you might end up having a stiff blanket to snuggle on.
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.
