How to choose a blanket?
Choosing a blanket, pay attention to the marking of goods and packaging, filler, heat, firmware method, cover material.
- The product label should be good to read the manufacturer, its address and telephone. Information on the form of filler, material case, weight and size of blankets, density, caring for it, storage conditions. Packaging without damage. Manufacturers who care about their products carefully relate to such trifles.
- Filler. It can be natural and artificial.
Natural attacks include Pooh waterfowl – goose, duck, Swan, Gagachi (chicken is not suitable, as it quickly loses the shape and comes into disrepair) + wool (camel, sheep, lamas, mountain goats) + vegetable fibers (cotton, bamboo, eucalyptus , seaweed) + threads of a tute silkworm. Such a filler misses the air well, absorbs moisture. Sometimes manufacturers add synthetic threads to natural. This is indicated on the product label. The presence of a natural component should be at least 50%.
Selecting the product with a flock, look carefully for it to be soft and easy to touch, when pressing abdicated in 20 seconds. Pooh and pen must be distributed evenly and not sticking out of the fabric cover. Their combination 75/25. Check out: The presence of smell indicates a bad product quality. Increased requirements are placed: it is dense, but not heavy. These blankets are the warmest. Do not like elevated air humidity. Ticks sometimes come in them.
Under woolen is always warm and cozy (camel wool is considered the warmest). Possesses therapeutic effect in diseases of the joints, rheumatism. It is easy to ventilate from foreign odors. Subject to damage to moth larvae. With high humidity rejection.
A blanket from silk fibers is lightweight, has a zipper in a case that allows you to see the contents. Silk white or slightly yellowish, odorless.
If the smell is present, or the fibers have a view of a spiral – poor quality products.
Operated in summer and winter. Refers to expensive models.
Bamboo, Eucalyptus in filler composition provide a bactericidal effect. But the price of such products is too high. Unfair manufacturers add to natural artificial fiber.
Novelty among the fillers were marine algae. Leaves of laminary dried, wave, laid into the case. Such material is short-lived in operation.
Artificial filler is a synthetone, silicone, hollofiber, tensulite. The last material is the best artificial. Synthetic blankets are easy, undemanding in care, do not absorb odors. Of the minuses noted the absence of air exchange. Moisture do not absorb, subject to static electricity accumulation, can lose the form during operation.
People prone to allergies should be chosen with silicone filler blankets, vegetable fibers (cotton, bamboo, eucalyptus), silk.
Wool, cotton, bamboo and silicone products can be washed.
- Degree of heat. It is noted on packaging in the form of points:
If the point is one, a blanket for summer, thin, filler is more often synthetic+
2 – Easy, inside contains lightweight wool, fluff+
3 – for all seasons+
4 – for winter, late autumn, early spring, warm+
5 points – the most warm, only for winter.
In this case, it is not always the thickness determines the degree of conservation of heat. Pay attention to the density. If it is 150-220 g / kV. m – blanket for summer. Demi-season – 280-300. The greatest density of 420 g / kV. M. Such a product is used cold in winter.
Summer blankets contain lightweight wool, bamboo fiber, silk, synthetic cloth. Winter is made of wool and fluff. Demi-season exploited all year round, the filling may be the most different. To secure a comfortable sleep all year, you should stock up a few kinds of blankets for different seasons. You can find blankets-sleeves on sale (transformers). They consist of two parts – warm and cold, interconnected buttons, velcro, lightning.
- Firmware method. In Steghan, the seams pass in parallel, the contents with time are shot down along the strip, the service life decreases, to wash it undesirable. When firmware, the kaoscap filler is placed in the case, the line goes from above in the form of a picture. Pay attention to the symmetry of the lines, otherwise the blanket will quickly lose the form. The cassette method is the most reliable. Thanks to the small symmetric sectors, in which the filler is placed separately, it is well fixed inside. The sectors are made in the form of rhombuses, squares, other figures. Patchwork blankets are rare on sale.
Carelessly completed seams, sticking threads become the cause of fast loss of the product shape and reduce operation time.
- The fabric of the cover must necessarily be made of natural materials: Tika, Boszy, Flax, Satina, Cotton Combines 80% and Polyester 20%. They absorb moisture well and paste air. Dear models have a silk case. For blankets, which are hidden by children, the best cloth for the case – Perkal. For synthetic fillers, manufacturers sew polyester covers, it is pre-treated with a special bactericidal impregnation. Material color is desirable neutral: white, beige, gentle pink. It is necessary so that it does not shine through the light shade of bed linen. In the edge of the product of the stitched bay, it serves to maintain the form.
Buying a blanket, remember that high-quality products can not cost cheap.
