Types Of Blankets That You Should Consider In the winter time, creature comforts are especially important. Small treasures like a hot cup of cocoa or curling up with a novel and a warm electric blanket are priceless. Blankets are more than just a necessity, they're a lifestyle choice. The type of fabric, the weight and the style can make the difference between tossing and turning or sleeping like a baby the whole night through. Moreover, the colors and patterns will accent a room to create a certain mood. There are dozens of choices, but basically you'll need to consider things like material, type, color and durability. There are many types of coverlets and bedspreads to choose from. Luxurious bedding, like the type at the Hilton Hotel, is often referred to as "heavenly" or "fit for a king." The truth is, you don't have to be royalty to enjoy a good night's sleep. Luxury sets include items like satin sheets, down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, memory foam, high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, damask pattern sheets and hand-embroidery. This type of bedding is recommended if you require maximum comfort and durability or if your decorating scheme is upscale modern. Frette, Bellino Fine Linens, Anichini, Peacock Alley, Pratesi and Yves Delorme are just a few of the manufacturers that offer luxury bedding. Fashion bedding offers blankets from designer name brands. If you're living the high life, in a whirlwind of style, culture and good fortune, then you'll want to impress guests with your sense of taste. The trick with designer bedding is that it doesn't always have to cost a fortune to look sleek and stylish. You can browse name brands like Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Missoni, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Signoria de Firenze for the most cutting edge and remarkable products. Colors, prints and fabrics from these designers will be exclusive, so you'll be a cut above the rest. Once you decide upon a style for your blankets, you'll need to choose a fabric. Egyptian cotton with a high thread count is considered to be one of the best materials you can buy. It's made from the soft fibers of Gossypium barbadense plants grown along the Nile and can be purchased through "Sferra Linens" for $215. Similarly, Pima cotton sheets by Thomas Lee come from the same plant material but are homegrown in the Southwest, retailing at $265 at "Thomas Leeltd". Flannel cotton is another type of fabric to consider, which has super soft fibers and can be purchased through "Llbean" for $32. Silk sheets by Kumi Kookoon offer high class luxury bedding for $338 at "Kumikoon". Another reliable blanket to consider is the "Under the Nile Cotton Blanket," which is made by the makers of soft baby clothes and sells for $190 at "Under The Nile". Sferra Linens
