Evonna. Blanket. June 07th , 2017.
You would think with all the added stress you have to go through when traveling, that by the time you got to your seat that you could just lower your seat and relax. Ahh! but then the cabin is too chilly and when you ask for an airline blanket, you have to rent it?
My own father was one of these lost and terrified people now, facing the most profound, unknown experience of his life. Like so many others, Dad`s natural fear of the unknown was magnified because he had so little real knowledge about where he was going or how he was supposed to get there.
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.
While a high thread count may matter in the softness of a snuggle blanket, it is not really the key aspect you would be looking for in a quality blanket. It is true, though, that soft blanket do have high thread count. But what really matters is that the sheets are made out of superior materials. Cotton, wool, and other fabric are being rolled into yearn before they are created into blankets. Basically, quality yarn is what you should look for to make sure that the blanket is supple.
And to add to that, their blankets are not even subject to basic hygiene, some blankets sent for testing have been discovered to have everything from mucus, teardrops, and lipstick to bodily fluids that I will allow you to imagine on your own. Given this would you really like to use the airline blanket offered anyway? I guess not!
