Cotton Blanket For Cold Spell
THE dry harmattan spell is a time people love to cover up properly in bed because of the accompanying cold. Cotton blankets come handy at this period for a restful sleep.
Cotton blankets are perfect for sleep through all seasons. With a search in bed linen stores, one can make a purchase of the right one.
Blankets are either woven from natural fibres like cotton or wool or synthetic fibres such as acrylic and nylon. Some of the fibres are used in combination in producing them.
Cotton blankets are widely used because of the versatility in look, styling and colour that is available. They are excellent as a layering piece to enhance the bed or to use alone.
Qualities and advantages
Cotton blankets are soft and comfortable. These types of blankets are breathable and absorbent. They are durable and long-lasting. Cotton fibres will not peel or shed.
The two enemies of cotton are colour fading and shrinking – taking a bit of care can prevent both. Cotton is machine washable and dry-able but high temperatures will cause it to fade or shrink. Always wash cotton in cold or cool water on a gentle cycle. Machine drying (no high heat) is recommended to help cotton blankets retain their shape.
For a smart room or bed look, matching the colour of these bed linens with existing décor will make for a luxurious and liveable space.
