The first item on your criteria should be fabric content. This is going to have a big impact on your choice of blankets, so make sure that you choose wisely according to your budget and you're your personal preference. Fabrics are available in both natural and synthetic fibers, so it would depend on you which type is best for your home and for your family.
Synthetic fiber blankets are much cheaper than natural fiber ones but they lack breathability due to the materials being used. Examples of synthetic fiber blankets include acrylic, fleece, and vellux. These blankets, particularly acrylic blankets, provide warmth during cold seasons and are much more affordable.
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.
Today the interest in pre WW2 trade blankets is growing. They are being sought after by collectors. You can also find them in museums in almost every state in America.
Conventional blankets, on the other hand, are for those who are sensitive to the cold and need more insulation during the night. Made with synthetic or wool fibers, conventional blankets are tightly woven and provide more warmth.
