A blanket is a type of bedding, a large piece of fabric used to cover a person in or out of bed for warmth. We know that the Native Americans would cover themselves with leaves and grasses to protect them from the elements. Eventually they learned how to weave grasses and reeds into a blanket and a mat to sleep on. These types of blankets have been found with burials of ancient people all around the world.
There are many types of coverlets and bedspreads to choose from. Luxurious bedding, like the type at the Hilton Hotel, is often referred to as "heavenly" or "fit for a king." The truth is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy a good night's sleep.
In the winter time, creature comforts are especially important. Small treasures like a hot cup of cocoa or curling up with a novel and a warm electric blanket are priceless. Blankets are more than just a necessity, they're a lifestyle choice. The type of fabric, the weight and the style can make the difference between tossing and turning or sleeping like a baby the whole night through. Moreover, the colors and patterns will accent a room to create a certain mood. There are dozens of choices, but basically you'll need to consider things like material, type, color and durability.
Blankets made with synthetic fibers, on the other hand, prioritize warmth and are much cheaper as compared to those made naturally. The only downside to this type is that they lack breathability and can be uncomfortable during hotter seasons. Popular examples of synthetic fiber blankets include acrylic, fleece, and vellux blankets. Acrylic blankets are especially cheaper than natural fiber blankets plus they provide warmth, are soft to the touch, and are hypo-allergenic.
Blankets made with natural fibers are durable and promote breathability when used. Most people find these more comfortable to use because of these two traits, so if you're after comfortable and breathable blankets, look for those that are made with natural fibers. Some examples of natural fiber blankets include cotton, wool, and down blankets.
