A blan­ket made of euca­lyp­tus or bam­boo, holofiber, swan’s down or wool — a vari­ety of options puts us in front of a very dif­fi­cult choice. A blan­ket is one of the impor­tant con­di­tions for a healthy rest­ful sleep. The choice of such a nec­es­sary item depends on the indi­vid­ual pref­er­ences of the user. There are lovers of light, but volu­mi­nous and large blan­kets, there are those who pre­fer warm and dense options, and some appre­ci­ate nat­u­ral­ness and envi­ron­men­tal friend­li­ness, pre­fer­ring to buy a blan­ket made of euca­lyp­tus instead of syn­thet­ics. Today the mar­ket offers many dif­fer­ent mod­els and for the right choice you need to be aware of all the nuances.

Variety of blankets: what are they?

All avail­able options avail­able for free sale can be divid­ed into groups, depend­ing on:

  • Com­po­si­tion. It can be syn­thet­ic fillers, as well as a bam­boo or sheep blan­ket. For peo­ple prone to aller­gies, there are spe­cial hypoal­ler­genic mod­els.
  • The lev­el of mois­ture absorp­tion or hygro­scop­ic­i­ty.
  • Degrees of breatha­bil­i­ty that pro­vide long-last­ing com­fort and opti­mal ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty.
  • Sur­face tis­sue and its char­ac­ter­is­tics. It is bet­ter to choose nat­ur­al mate­ri­als such as satin, coarse cal­i­co, linen. Although mod­ern high-qual­i­ty syn­thet­ic fab­rics are in many ways not infe­ri­or to nat­ur­al coun­ter­parts.
  • Dif­fi­cul­ties in main­tain­ing the prod­uct. Con­sid­er the impos­si­bil­i­ty of wash­ing or chem­i­cal treat­ment of some prod­ucts.
  • size. Every­thing is stan­dard here: chil­dren’s, one and a half, dou­ble and euro. The most impor­tant thing is to remem­ber the exact dimen­sions of the blan­ket in order not to make a mis­take when buy­ing bed­ding in the future.

What is inside the blanket and how to make the right choice?

There are many fillers for blan­kets. For exam­ple, a blan­ket “bam­boo” or “euca­lyp­tus”, mod­els made of camel and sheep wool, options with syn­thet­ic fibers and arti­fi­cial swan down. Each of them has its own advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages.

Fillers can be natural…

  1. A duvet is a clas­sic option for a harsh Russ­ian win­ter. They are soft, light and very warm. But fluff is not suit­able for the rest of the year. Too hot under­neath. Down absorbs mois­ture well. The only draw­back is that it can become damp, fall off and become a com­fort­able envi­ron­ment for the devel­op­ment of a colony of dust mites. For peo­ple prone to aller­gies, fluff is con­traindi­cat­ed.
  2. Wool prod­ucts are a great choice for those who love warmth. The advan­tage of this mate­r­i­al is the pres­ence in its com­po­si­tion of nat­ur­al lano­lin, which is use­ful for the skin and joints. Wool is rec­om­mend­ed for those who suf­fer from arthri­tis, con­vul­sions and hypoten­sion. The most pop­u­lar are camel wool — light, hygro­scop­ic, resilient and safe, meri­no — durable and easy to use, sheep — afford­able and prac­ti­cal. Our cat­a­log of sheep wool blan­kets is pre­sent­ed in a vari­ety of mod­els and col­ors. Dust per­me­abil­i­ty is con­sid­ered a small minus of wool, so this blan­ket is not suit­able for every­one. If we com­pare a blan­ket — bam­boo or sheep wool, then the first option is more suit­able for aller­gy suf­fer­ers.
  3. Veg­etable fillers have recent­ly become very pop­u­lar. Cot­ton and linen have low ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty, eas­i­ly absorb excess mois­ture, and are suit­able for those who are prone to aller­gies. Also, plant fillers include bam­boo, euca­lyp­tus and buck­wheat. Bam­boo blan­kets can be bought inex­pen­sive­ly via the Inter­net, they have bac­te­ri­ci­dal prop­er­ties, a mas­sage effect, and are nat­ur­al immunos­tim­u­lants. Prod­ucts with veg­etable fillers are per­fect­ly erased, serve for a long time, are con­ve­nient and com­fort­able to use.

… And synthetic

Blan­kets with arti­fi­cial fillers are afford­able and unpre­ten­tious. Low hygro­scop­ic­i­ty is com­pen­sat­ed by envi­ron­men­tal friend­li­ness, hypoal­ler­genic­i­ty and light­ness. These fillers include:

Arti­fi­cial bat­ting. Warm and durable mate­r­i­al. How­ev­er, it is quite dif­fi­cult to take care of him. Dry clean­ing leaves stains, wash­ing is pro­hib­it­ed. The only way out is a vac­u­um clean­er and knock­ing out the prod­uct. For chil­dren of preschool and ado­les­cence, such mate­r­i­al is not rec­om­mend­ed, since over time it can fall off, com­pact and accu­mu­late dust.

Sin­tepon, swan down and holofiber are time-test­ed mate­ri­als. They are eas­i­ly erased, do not accu­mu­late sta­t­ic elec­tric­i­ty, do not cake and do not fade. You can buy a blan­ket made of swan down in almost any spe­cial­ized store. At the same time, each of them absorbs mois­ture rather poor­ly and does not pro­vide suf­fi­cient air access. Choose a warm blan­ket: swan down or bam­boo is the most suit­able option for the off-sea­son.


If we com­pare all known fillers, we can come to an obvi­ous con­clu­sion — bam­boo filler is the most opti­mal. The com­bi­na­tion of its pos­i­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics and the almost com­plete absence of short­com­ings make the mate­r­i­al the most suit­able for use at any time of the year and under any con­di­tions. In addi­tion, bam­boo itself is con­sid­ered an eas­i­ly renew­able nat­ur­al resource, the indus­tri­al use of which does not harm the envi­ron­ment. Which blan­ket to choose — bam­boo or holofiber, wool or nat­ur­al fluff — is a per­son­al mat­ter for every­one, the main thing is that the choice is com­fort­able, and sleep is healthy and sound.
