The Best Blankets

The best blankets offer a blend of comfort, quality, and functionality. They should cater to different needs and preferences, ranging from warmth to weight and material. Our selection meets these needs.

California Design Den All Season Bed Blanket

First on our list of best cotton blankets, the soft cotton blanket redefines all-season comfort with its premium material. Made from ethically sourced, pure cotton, it is the ideal choice for those seeking a natural and sustainable option.

The blanket promotes air circulation, keeping you comfortable regardless of the season. The breathability of the material also means that it is suitable for a range of climates and personal heat preferences. This makes it the best blanket for night sweats we have on our shelves!

We offer three sizes (king, queen/full, and twin/twin XL) for every bed size. Boasting all the benefits of cotton, like moisture-wicking, durability, and easy maintenance, this blanket is an investment in quality sleep.

California Design Den Hand-Knitted Weighted Blanket

Our hand-knitted weighted blanket takes comfort to the next level. Its chunky design makes it a boon during the colder months (and a worthy mention as the best blanket for winter).

Weighted blankets have gained popularity for their therapeutic benefits, reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality. Our hand-knitted version amplifies these benefits by incorporating quality craftsmanship with functionality.

The absence of fillers means that the weight remains evenly distributed, providing a gentle, comforting pressure across your body.

This blanket comes in three weights and sizes (12 lb - 40 x 72, 15 lb - 44 x 72, 10 lb - 40 x 64), allowing you to choose the perfect one for your personal comfort.

Suitable for both hot and cold sleepers, this breathable weighted blanket is machine washable for easy care and maintenance.

Care & Maintenance

Based on our observations, regular cleaning and proper storage can extend the life of your blankets. We recommend washing your blankets in lukewarm water with a mild detergent to prevent damage. Avoid harsh chemicals where possible.

It's best to tumble dry on a low setting or air dry your blankets to preserve the fabric's natural qualities, like softness.

Store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and deterioration. For weighted blankets, make certain to lay them out evenly to avoid bunching of the internal material.

What To Look For In The Best Blankets

When selecting a blanket, consider the material, weight, size, and care requirements. The material of the blanket determines its feel, warmth, and longevity. Cotton, for example, is breathable and suitable for all seasons.

Size matters for adequate coverage and comfort, so ensure the blanket fits your bed properly. Our research indicates that a blanket that is larger than your bed may be prone to falling off the side or trapping air and causing overheating.

A high-quality blanket should be easy to maintain, machine washable, and retain its shape and softness after washing. These qualities make it a convenience rather than a hindrance to your daily routine.

How Often Should You Wash a Blanket?

The frequency of washing a blanket depends on how often you use it and its material makeup. Our findings show that you should wash your blankets every two to three months.

Blankets that are used daily may require more frequent washing to remove dirt, sweat, and allergens, especially if you have pets that shed. Once or twice a month should suffice.

Where on the Bed Should You Place the Blanket?

For warmth, you can place it between the top sheet and the comforter or duvet. For decoration, fold the blanket at the foot of the bed for a clean finish.
