How To Care For Blankets? – A blanket’s qualities are warmth, weight and durability. Absorbency is less of an issue because you do not normally sleep with a blanket next to your skin. Layered as they are between the sheet and the bedspread, blankets need laundering less frequently than sheets.
Blankets are generally made from wool, cotton or a synthetic fibre. Wool blankets, which range from plain old lambswool to merino wool to cashmere, are warm and luxurious. They tend to be heavier than other blankets and suit those who like sleeping under a bit of weight. They are warm in cold weather. They can sometimes be machine-washed, but often have to be dry- cleaned.Tags: blankets, how to clean
