A good blanket is a prerequisite for a healthy, restful and comfortable sleep. Every buyer always has an idea about the convenience of bedding. Reflecting on how to choose a blanket, it is useful to heed the advice of experts. With their help, it is easier to understand the variety of the range and find a really high-quality product that meets individual requirements and wishes.
Bedding - not those things that you can choose from the photo in online stores. Before buying you need to think in advance about all the basic qualities of the product: size, sewing technology, material, filler, warming properties. With the first characteristic, everything is more or less clear: the size can be single, one-and-a-half or double. When choosing it, you need to take into account only personal preferences and the possibility of selecting suitable bed linen.
For coating used woven materials - coarse, satin, polyester. As for the sewing technology, according to this parameter, all products are divided into quilted, kostepnye and cassette. Quilt is made with a special quilting, which secures the filler. In kostepnyh products, the filler is held by stitching Cassette models have separate sections with a filler inside each. They are considered the most wear-resistant and easy-to-care, as they best hold the filler, preventing it from rolling into lumps.
The warmest for the winter and other cold periods of the year should be chosen among the models with high-quality filler, which has sufficient ability to retain heat. The degree of heat transfer of the product is indicated on the label to the product in the form of points. They can be from one to five. The more points, the warmer the model. Keep in mind that the best materials include:
natural and artificial down;
camel and sheep wool;
thick cotton blankets warm up well in the cold season.
The bamboo product is soft and light, keeps its shape for a long time, is unable to cause allergies, it is simply washed, it dries quickly. It is not warm enough for winter, and in summer, spring or early autumn it is very comfortable to sleep under it. However, before choosing a bamboo blanket as the main option for the warm season, it is worth assessing the humidity conditions of the climate in which you live. Bamboo fiber absorbs moisture very well, so it will be difficult to dry it at high humidity.
The synthetic blanket is warm, light, but it does not pass moisture well enough. It is recommended to wash it infrequently, because this way the product can quickly lose its shape. How to choose a good blanket with padding? When buying you need to make sure that the product filler is elastic and moderately voluminous. Too loose, fluffy material - this is the so-called glued synthetic winterizer. Like other species, it is a specially treated polyester fiber, but its production uses toxic glue, emitting harmful substances.
Cashmere products are distinguished by high prices, but they are very warm, light, and durable. Unlike other woolen products, cashmere blankets are suitable for allergies. With proper care, they are able to maintain their valuable properties and good appearance for many years. It is believed that cashmere is a capricious material that requires constant access to dry cleaning services. However, quality items are allowed to be washed in typewriters. To ensure a cashmere product as long as possible life, you need to use a gentle wash mode.
