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.
Native Americans are very much connected to the history of the blanket. Long before white settlers drove west the Indians could use their blankets made from plant fibers as trade items for food and tools. When trappers began to move west in search of animal skins, they would trade blankets to the Indians for beaver skins. Then when the settlers drove west the Native Americans could trade handmade blankets, strung beads and other items made from animal bones for commercially made wool blankets.
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.
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.
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.
