Summer Bedding Thoughts: The Differences between our Organic Cotton Blankets
With summer here, the thought of the ideal summer blanket comes to mind. A blanket just light and airy enough to fit perfectly with the hot weather without emphasizing how hot the weather actually is. Summer is different for different locations and different house styles. An ideal blanket at one location, may not be ideal at another. With this in mind, we feel it’s time to explain the differences between our organic blankets. Hopefully this information will allow the opportunity to pick the right organic summer (or other season) blanket for your home.
Organized by lightest weight to heaviest weight, we’ll discuss the differences about each one.
Organic Cotton Large Waffle Weave Blanket
This blanket is the most aerated and lightest weight. It’s great for summer time as a result of this and can also be a good light weight layering blanket. Its weave is playful and slightly plush. This blanket is soft with optimal give due to its wider style weave.
Organic Cotton Waffle Weave Blanket
This blanket also gets good aeration and is light weight, though slightly heavier in weight and less aerated than the large waffle weave blanket. This blanket is soft and also good for summer and spring weather. The weave is homey and simple, and also works nicely as a layering blanket.
Organic Cotton Crepe Weave Blanket
This blanket has a tighter weave and less aeration, but is still light weight. Some also find this blanket can work nicely being used in the patio or sun room in dryer areas. The weave is more sophisticated than the waffle weaves. Like the others, this blanket is also soft, but is also more streamlined in feel. This blanket will work nicely in summer, late spring, and certain fall weather.
Organic Cotton Chenille Stripe Blanket
This soft blanket has a tighter weave with some extra aeration due to the stripe stitch. It is medium weight and good for all seasons. With its elegant yet relaxed weave it makes a very appealing bedspread. This blanket is also more plush than our other options.
Chenille Herringbone (Colorgrown Brown & Undyed Natural)
The organic cotton chenille herringbone blanket has one of the tightest weaves of our blankets. An elegant design with a heavier medium weight, this blanket is ideal for a bedspread. This blanket can be used all season, though it would work especially well in fall and winter in combination with one of our light weight wool comforters. This blanket has minimal aeration and is soft with a slight plush texture. The colorgrown brown is slightly lighter in weight and less thick naturally.
We also have a twin size organic cotton double layer 8oz flannel blanket and a twin size organic cotton knit blanket. Both have travel size capabilities and are very soft and comfortable. The flannel would be ideal for cooler weather, while the knit would be ideal for warmer weather.
We hope this information on our organic cotton blankets is helpful. Please feel free to post in the comments your ideas for the next blog post!
