Which blan­ket to choose is a fair­ly com­mon ques­tion. The domes­tic tex­tile and light indus­try keeps pace with progress and replen­ish­es the mar­ket with new prod­ucts almost every year. Every time, pil­lows, blan­kets, blan­kets with high-qual­i­ty, envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly and nat­ur­al fillers appear on the shelves and in store cat­a­logs. And of course, there comes a moment when we are at a loss, decid­ing what to choose from this. Below is a brief descrip­tion of the most famous mate­ri­als. You just have to com­pare and choose the best option for your­self.

What material is better to buy a blanket?

The warmest are blan­kets with nat­ur­al fillers made of down and wool. Their only draw­back is aller­genic­i­ty. There­fore, they often need to be treat­ed against ticks, ven­ti­lat­ed in the open air and dried.

Silk and bam­boo blan­kets are a great alter­na­tive, but not suit­able for cold weath­er. Here, euca­lyp­tus, linen, cot­ton and hemp fillers will be a good sub­sti­tute.

Mate­ri­als made of syn­thet­ic fibers today are infe­ri­or only in one thing — a low rate of mois­ture exchange.

Down and feathers

So, how not to make a mis­take with the choice and find the very soft, airy, warm blan­ket that will give us sweet dreams? In addi­tion to fab­ric, the main thing in this mat­ter is the choice of filler. In this case, the ques­tion is pure­ly indi­vid­ual. There­fore, it is worth study­ing the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the most pop­u­lar mate­ri­als today:

    Bird (goose) down is the most popular filler used since the time of our great-grandfathers. The advantages of goose down include, first of all, its naturalness, lightness, excellent thermoregulation, elasticity, antistatic, the ability to retain heat, let air through, maintain and restore the shape of the product, and long service life. A duvet can keep you warm at night for 20 years.
    However, despite such advantages, goose down has a number of such serious drawbacks as allergenicity, the ability to absorb moisture and create a favorable environment for the reproduction of microbes. In addition, duvets are not practical: they are expensive, and they are picky in care.
    Another version of bird down is swan down and its artificial counterpart is thinsulate. Thinsulate is hypoallergenic, harmless, does not cake and retains its shape, does not allow harmful microbes to develop, keeps heat for a long time and is very light — an “adult” blanket weighs only half a kilogram.

Wool fillers

    Of the natural woolen fillers, the leader is camel wool, which is gradually conquering Europe. Its quality is undeniable: if your family members often catch a cold or suffer from pain in muscles and joints, then when choosing which blanket is better to buy for a child, pay attention to the camel filler. The quality of this material is undeniable: it keeps heat and shape for a long time, is lightweight, does not create a greenhouse effect, does not electrify, and can last up to 30 years. Even allergy sufferers and people with hypersensitive skin can buy a camel blanket, however, it is better to first consult with specialists. The dubious “plus” of this option is a rather high cost.
    The next equally popular natural filler is sheep’s wool. The main advantage of such a filler is the therapeutic effect. Especially recommended for those who suffer from muscle spasms and osteochondrosis. In addition, sheepskin perfectly transmits heat, does not retain and evaporate moisture, neutralizes static electricity, and provides dry warmth in wet and cold weather. Well, the most important thing is affordability: sheep blankets are even cheaper than some synthetic ones.

The dis­ad­van­tages include, alas, the same aller­genic­i­ty. Sheep­skin is not able to retain its orig­i­nal shape for a long time, it is quite heavy in weight and requires spe­cial care.

vegetable variant

Bam­boo fiber, or rather cel­lu­lose regen­er­at­ed from bam­boo, is con­sid­ered the most envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly of veg­etable fillers. It is hypoal­ler­genic, has excel­lent ther­moreg­u­la­tion, and “breathes” well. Blan­kets “on bam­boo” are very light and easy to care for. By the way, you can buy a bam­boo blan­ket with­out leav­ing your home in the Dream­catch­er online store.

    Lyocell, tenzel is another version of a plant-natural filler based on eucalyptus fiber. If you can’t decide which blanket is better to buy for a newborn, then eucalyptus filler is the best option. Firstly, it is indicated for allergy sufferers, such a product keeps heat and shape for a long time, perfectly passes air and moisture, and does not become electrified. The eucalyptus blanket is unpretentious in care (calmly endures numerous washes in a machine) and can keep your baby warm for 10 years. The only drawback of this filler is the price.
    Previously, the role of cotton filler was performed by ordinary cotton wool, but the development of industry has made this material more practical, hypoallergenic, warm and affordable. But it still absorbs a lot of moisture, is heavier than others, and less durable.
    Fillers made of hemp and linen fibers have made serious competition to expensive silk. They are safe for allergy sufferers, perfectly pass moisture and air, are durable, do not create an environment favorable for microbes, and are easy to care for.
    Fluffy fibers of natural silk are leading in all respects, except for price and thermal conductivity. This filler does not cause allergies, absorbs moisture, allows air to pass through, is easy to use and durable (10–12 years a silk blanket will delight and warm you at night).

As you can see, there are many options.

IMPORTANT! The main thing when buy­ing pro­ceed from your own indi­vid­ual char­ac­ter­is­tics and pref­er­ences. Care­ful­ly read the char­ac­ter­is­tics, ask your friends. The right choice will guar­an­tee a sweet, healthy sleep.
