Let’s stop more on the advantages and disadvantages of cotton blankets.
Pros and cons
Wattin’s blanket is a practical and thick product. It is used to cover the body during day or night rest. The filler consists of one hundred percent cleaned cotton cotton wool, and a coherent is used as a cover, sitez, satin, as well as atlas or microfiber. In stores you can find products based on blended filling, combining cotton and artificial fibers – depending on the manufacturer, they may have a different percentage ratio.
In the Soviet years, Wattin’s blankets were widespread, our moms and dads slept mainly under such. But at the end of the last century, more modern and, accordingly, more expensive materials came to replace them. But today people remembered the old good blankets from Wattin.
After all, their merits are obvious.
Heavy weight. Studies have long confirmed that under a heavy blanket people sleep tight.
Antistatic. Such blankets are well preserved heat, not electrified. This is especially true today, when residential buildings are overflowed with household appliances creating static electricity. This leads to insomnia, migraines and decline, sleep under a cotton blanket minimizes these negative impacts.
Safety. Ward blankets are made exclusively from natural materials, they do not pose a threat to the health of children and adults.
Hypoallergenicity. Watin is optimal for people having skin and respiratory diseases, as well as allergies.
Comfort. Watina-based textiles are pleasant to the touch, gives comfort and warm.
Uniform distribution of filler. High quality shot guarantees that the bedspread will not be knocked down with lumps.
Practicality. With careful circulation, such blankets can serve up to 3 decades.
A pleasant bonus will be a democratic price – a cotton blanket is worth an order of magnitude cheaper blankets with any other fillers.
There are also disadvantages.
Cat filler is folded for manual cleaning due to its severity. In addition, such blankets can not be emitted in the machine. Even after dry cleaning, there are inesthetical divorces.
Wool often absorbs extraneous odors.
Natural cotton fibers become a favorable medium for the appearance of dust ticks, bedbugs and other parasites.
Vata absorbs moisture well, but it dismisses it badly. Such blankets require beating and regular drying – no less often in a quarter.
Depending on the technique of sewing, there are several varieties of cotton blankets.
Stegian – These are products in which the cotton filler is attached to the cover with a stitching. Such models are most in demand, as they ensure uniformity of the redistribution of batting throughout the area. Even with low air temperature, quilted blankets give comfort and surround with warmth.
Karoscpe – These blankets are manually manufactured. They are distinguished by a complex pattern. They stylishly look and have good thermal insulation. However, if the pattern is large, then over time, cotton begins to be knocked out and distributed unevenly.
Cassette – the most expensive products, they consist of several separate blocks. Each of them is filled with cotton. The creation of partitions contributes to the holding of the filler in one place, not letting it shift.
Wattin blankets differ in such parameters as the structure and composition of fibers, their density, as well as thickness and color. The filler itself can be produced both from fully natural and blended raw materials.
Sizes and weight
Watin blankets are made in several sizes.
Children’s models, for children of younger – 110×140 cm.
1.5 bedroom – 140×205 cm. They are relevant to teenagers and adults who prefer to sleep alone.

Euro – 200×225 or 220×240 cm. Designed for the couple, which does not go to bed approaching each other.
Cotton blankets are very hard. Their final mass depends on the parameters of the product – its length, height, width, as well as density (that is, the specific weight of each volume unit).
For example, for a blanket with parameters 140×205 cm with a density of 500 g / m2, a standard mass is 1.5 kg.
Cotton filler can have white, yellow or grayish color. If the blanket is made from the apparatus yarn, it has coloring in multi-colored shades. Nowadays a lot of color solutions are presented. Blankets are blue, green, red and multicolored, so you can always use cotton products without a duvette. Covers are usually embraced from natural matter. In stores you can find both monophonic products and products with abstract ornament.
In a situation where the blanket is used without a ductile, it is desirable to pick it up with the general stylist of the bedroom. It may be the same shade as the whole finish. Or maybe, on the contrary, give a contrast accent.
Very effectively look cotton blankets with a satin surface, they are often used as stylish plaids.
