Tips to Choose Blankets Suitable For All Seasons

To achieve a comfortable sleep or to just cosy up at the end of a hectic day, one needs a comfortable blanket. We all have our preferences, and without a proper good night's sleep, one cannot function optimally the next day. Choosing a blanket that helps relax, lounge and sleep are essential to get that ideal sleep pattern. It also depends on one's comfort level regarding the type of favourite fabric or heaviness desired in the blanket.

Here are some tips to help in selecting a blanket variety that will help you not just choose but make you happy when you buy it and look forward to cuddling up in it. There are a variety of snuggly duvets that you can opt for according to the season. Explore, choose, buy and snug down in the best blanket variety for the perfect slumber. 

What Do You Need in the Perfect Blanket Variety?

When you are in the mood to have movie marathons by lounging on the bed or couch, what better to hold on to other than a snuggly blanket? A perfect blanket must be a blanket variety that has a welcoming quality in all seasons and situations. One may just want to unwind and relax with a favourite edition of the latest thriller book or watch that exciting sports finale. Regardless of what you do whilst de-stressing, having blankets that will unfurl that tiredness away is essential daily. Several options out there will make you wonder and may even confuse you in selecting a blanket type that you may like. Before buying the ideal blanket, some points are listed below to be comfortable at all times of the year.

Expert Tips to Order the Best Blanket Variety

1) The Most Comfortable Fabric Type

An essential quality to consider in the desired  duvets  is the suitable fabric for every person. Despite considering the upsides and downsides of every fabric variety due to the ongoing season, one may still choose comfort over logic. This will not always work out for the best as you may end up perspiring in a woollen blanket in the summers or with a scratchy body in the monsoons. 

  • Cotton: is available in a range of thicknesses, weave patterns and blends. It suits all seasons and is best suited for allergy-prone individuals. 
  • Fleece: offers a lot of warmth and does not absorb much moisture.
  • Cashmere: though pricey, it is incredibly light and soft.
  • Wool: is great in colder weather as it offers superior warmth with a heavy feel. It may not suit those with wool allergies.
  • Down: though delicate, keep warm at all times. Less aerated due to the layers of feathers and fabric, therefore causing sweating. It is ideal for those who do not sweat a lot. 
  • Synthetic fabrics: are not pricey as fabrics like  polyester  and acrylic are used in making them. But are to be avoided by those who do not like a static feeling. 

2) Velvety Smooth Feel

When it comes to a blanket, it  should provide enough aeration  and not be too clingy. It lends a breathable feeling throughout the time you snuggle within. If you do not feel comfortable in the blanket because of the feel of the fabric, then it is pointless to go for it. The weave style affects the feel of the blanket and how it clings to the body. When you choose the desired fabric, it is time to choose the weave pattern. Different weave styles to consider are listed below.

  • Thermal: type of weave gives a loosely flowing variety best suited for hot weather conditions. 
  • Quilt weave: a threading pattern between the blanket's entire length. It does not get crumpled, especially in down fabrics. It keeps warm but is quite bulky for those who prefer flimsy varieties.
  • Knitted: the woollen threads are either machine interwoven or hand knitted. The closely knit patterns offer good warmth but not much aeration. 
  • Regular: is the widely used weaving pattern that produces a tightly woven blanket. It gives medium warmth and is suitable for those who prefer non-clingy blanket varieties. 

3) Appropriate Size

The right size for the preferred blanket is essential if one wants to stay cosy. Snuggling in  blankets  that are too short for one's height will prove to be uncomfortable as you will not be able to stretch out yourself fully. Sleeping in the correct positions is vital to getting complete sleep. Too long a blanket, on the other hand, will be too warm and not let enough aeration take place, which will again cause sleep disturbances. Some standard sizes to consider are listed below. These sizes can be customised anytime with a tailor according to one's need.

King size: measures about 90" X 110"

Queen size: measures about 90" X 90"

Full size: measures about 90" X 85"

Twin size: measures about 90" X 65"

4) Other Accentuated Fabrics

Those who prefer a fabric feel of superior varieties have options such as faux fur or Turkish cotton. These have improved threading patterns and offer a softer feeling in bed. Some options to choose from are a blend of cotton with other synthetic varieties, such as polycotton, cotton with wool, polyester with cashmere, etc.

5) Change is Key

A collection of blanket varieties that will suit most seasons is the key to getting a complete slumber. While extreme temperatures may require utterly different blanket varieties, one can use a similar blanket during the other easy-going seasons.
