Thermal blankets usually are woven loosely as compared to conventional blankets in order to allow air to circulate. These are best for people who do not need so much warmth during sleep. It is made with acrylic and cotton fibers.
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.
Thermal blankets are typical for those who are "warm sleepers". They are loosely woven and made with acrylic or cotton fibers that allow the smooth circulation of air during sleep. Body heat escapes easily with this type of blanket, so buy this if you normally feel warm during the evenings.
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.
We don't use wool trade blankets today because we have a market loaded with blankets made of various materials that are a lot more comfortable than wool. They are made in many forms and materials such as cotton, fleece, cashmere, silk and chenille, and are called blankets, quilts and comforters. In my next article I will delve into the different blankets that are manufactured today and the material they are made from.
