Choosing the best blankets for your log cabin
Whether tossed on the arm of a sofa, hung from the back of a lounge chair, or laid along the end of a bed, the right blanket can bring color, style, and comfort to your cabin. See our buying guide below.
Find the Right Size
When buying a blanket for your cabin, you need one that is perfectly sized for your intended purpose. For instance, if you want to use it on your bed, it should be enough to cover the mattress, leaving a few extra inches to tuck in around the sides.
Select the Right Fabric
Picking the right fabric is a bit tricky. There are several standard blanket fabrics, and each one of them has its benefits. It is, therefore, best to research well and choose the one that best suits your needs. If you need a heavy warm blanket, you can go for wool which offers great insulation while allowing significant moisture evaporation.
What about weave?
Besides fabrics, blankets also come in different weaves, which offer varying levels of warmth and weight. For instance, a thermal weave is loose, and it lets air circulate easily, while cozy knit weaves are heavy and warm. The latter are usually made from wool or synthetic material.
