A blanket is a type of bedding, a large piece of fabric used to cover a person in or out of bed for warmth. We know that the Native Americans would cover themselves with leaves and grasses to protect them from the elements. Eventually they learned how to weave grasses and reeds into a blanket and a mat to sleep on. These types of blankets have been found with burials of ancient people all around the world.
Thermal blankets usually are woven loosely as compared to conventional blankets in order to allow air to circulate. These are best for people who do not need so much warmth during sleep. It is made with acrylic and cotton fibers.
Blankets made with synthetic fibers, on the other hand, prioritize warmth and are much cheaper as compared to those made naturally. The only downside to this type is that they lack breathability and can be uncomfortable during hotter seasons. Popular examples of synthetic fiber blankets include acrylic, fleece, and vellux blankets. Acrylic blankets are especially cheaper than natural fiber blankets plus they provide warmth, are soft to the touch, and are hypo-allergenic.
We don't use wool trade blankets today because we have a market loaded with blankets made of various materials that are a lot more comfortable than wool. They are made in many forms and materials such as cotton, fleece, cashmere, silk and chenille, and are called blankets, quilts and comforters. In my next article I will delve into the different blankets that are manufactured today and the material they are made from.
