Natural fiber blankets can be quite expensive, but they provide optimum durability and breathability because of the natural materials being used during manufacture. Most people find natural fiber blankets more comfortable to use, so if you think the comfort and health of your family is more important than price, this is the type of blanket for you.
As good quality wool blankets became important as a trading commodity for explorers and trappers, American companies began production of woolen trade blankets. These companies that sprung up in America with names like Racine Woolen Mills in Wisconsin, Capps in Illinois, Buell in Missouri and Oregon City Mill in Oregon began to produce these trade blankets.
It became necessary for the Native Americans to trade for wool blankets as the white hunters moved west and slaughtered the buffalo and took the skins which were a staple for food, shelter and clothing for the Indians.
Luxury sets include items like satin sheets, down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, memory foam, high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, damask pattern sheets and hand-embroidery. This type of bedding is recommended if you require maximum comfort and durability or if your decorating scheme is upscale modern. Frette, Bellino Fine Linens, Anichini, Peacock Alley, Pratesi and Yves Delorme are just a few of the manufacturers that offer luxury bedding.
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.
