Blankets keep you warm and comfortable on a winter night and help you get good sleep so that you wake up fresh for the grind of a new day the next morning. Some people are so used to blankets that it becomes something like a comforter for them, and even on summer nights they cannot sleep without covering themselves with one. Such people would need a light blanket, because a thick woolen one would serve the opposite purpose of making you sweat and feel uncomfortable. But that is just an exception. In a majority of the cases, blankets are meant to keep you warm during winter nights, and in cold countries they are used almost throughout the year. Military personnel, who usually have to spend many nights together outdoors, are probably the largest consumers of blankets. But military blankets, in keeping with their circumstances, tend to be a little coarse. Domestic blankets, on the other hand, tend to be soft and comfortable. Blankets, which are also sometimes called quilts or duvets, are made of different materials and you can choose one depending on your requirement.
Cotton blankets: These blankets are made pf pure cotton, and although they may not be really warm as woolen blankets, they are eminently desirable during mildly cold weather conditions. Being made of a natural fabric, cotton blankets are also very soothing to the skin, especially if you have allergies to other kinds of synthetic materials. They are also ideal for babies who have very sensitive skins. Even during summers, people use these lightweight cotton blankets as comforters as they help in getting good sleep.
Woolen blankets: It is during extremely cold conditions that you would need a proper woolen blanket to keep you warm at night. The woolen fabric of the blanket keeps you insulated from outside cold, and also does not let your body heat escape. Another advantage of a woolen blanket is that it is resistant to fire, so you can easily use it without risk even if you have a fireplace in the room.
Fleece blankets: For people who have an allergy to wool, a fleece blanket would be ideal as it is very soft, comfortable and keeps you equally warm. Fleeces is also much lighter than wool and easier to maintain, as you can wash and dry them as normal clothes.
