If you are buying a blanket for your bed, you need one large enough to cover the mattress with a few extra inches to tuck in around the sides and bottom. Though exact sizes vary, typical blanket sizes (length by width) are
- Twin size: Ninety by sixty-five inches.
- Full-size: Ninety by eighty-five inches
- Queen size: Ninety by ninety inches
- King size: Ninety by one hundred and ten inches
The softest blankets are usually made from synthetic materials like acrylic, nylon, or polyester. This includes fleece and Sherpa blankets. High-quality fleece blankets can be made to feel as soft as plush or faux fur, which makes them incredibly comfortable against the skin.
If the softness is your primary concern, choose one made from cotton, cashmere, or plush, which tend to be the most comfortable blanket materials as per our experience. For more fabric queries, kindly contact us.
Thicker blankets like wool blankets, cotton fleece blankets, and cashmere blankets are the warmest. The spaces between the fibres in a napped or fuzzy blanket trap warm air, keeping you warmer for a long time.
