1. Designer wool blanket or bedspread: from classic to unusual

Woolen blankets or bedspreads

Whether bedspread, cuddly blanket or couch blanket - high-quality blankets set stylish accents in your home and provide "that certain something" especially in a minimalist environment. There are endless design possibilities thanks to the wide variety of designs: from simple blankets in uni (1) and striking geometric patterns (2) to models with abstract motifs (3) or in the classic chequered design (4) to the blanket design with curved lines (5) has the right thing for every taste. A special variation are also plain coloured blankets with multi-coloured yarn, which captivate with their mottled look.

2. Finding the right size for your design blanket

Depending on what you want to use the blanket for, you should also choose the appropriate size. You can use the following standard shapes as a guide:

  • Bedspreads are usually almost square and therefore also suitable to cover king-size beds completely.
  • Classical blankets and also woolen blankets usually come in the typical rectangular format. Therefore, they are just the right size to warm yourself on the sofa or armchair while reading or watching TV. On a bed, they can at most be used as a scarf or throw.
  • Baby day blankets or woolen blankets usually have a square format and a maximum diameter of 100 cm.

3. Material and feel

Blankets can be made of a wide variety of materials and can have numerous haptics due to the various weaves. However, if quality and durability are important to you, choose a blanket made of natural material or a blanket with a material mix of natural and synthetic fibres.

Besides cotton and linen blankets, which are growing in popularity due to their casual look, high-quality woollen blankets are above all temperature-regulating and, with the right care, extremely durable. They can be made of different types of wool, namely

  • Sheep wool
  • Merino Wool
  • Alpaca wool
  • Cashmere Wool
  • Lamb Wool

The special thing about blankets in a material mix of natural and synthetic fibres is that they combine the advantages of both materials in equal measure and are therefore both robust and easy to clean.

Depending on the material and weave, each type of blanket has its own advantages: Bedspreads with fillings (1) are firm and soft at the same time due to the light padding, similar to a quilt. Knitted blankets (2) radiate cosiness and warmth through their structure. Blankets with fringes or tassels (3) look casual and emphasize a relaxed look - whether with waffle embossing or classic motifs. Cotton and linen blankets with a crinkle look (4) also exude a casual charm and are very soft and cuddly.

4. Care tips for woollen blankets, bedspreads & Co.

Regardless of which type of blanket you use - always follow the product instructions or care label before cleaning, as designer wool blankets can be damaged quickly by incorrect care.

Frequently, shaking out is sufficient to remove dust, fabric fringes and small dirt particles. You can also make matted pile soft and supple again with a gentle brush.

When washing a wool blanket, wool detergent should be used and the cold wash cycle should be set at a low spin speed. In addition, wool blankets should never be tumble-dried, but always dried in the fresh air - preferably spread out so that they neither lose their shape nor develop unsightly creases. Direct sunlight should be avoided if possible to prevent the colours from fading.

5. Conclusion - this is what you should consider when buying designer blankets

  • Whether as a cuddly blanket, living room blanket or couch blanket - their designs are as varied as the possible uses of blankets. One thing is certain, however, and that is that they will always add a special accent to your home.
  • The right size or shape of a blanket should always be considered when buying: While bedspreads are usually almost square, classic blankets and also woollen blankets are usually found in the typical rectangular format.
  • There are also many different blanket designs in terms of material and feel, each with its own advantages and providing different styles. For example, knitted blankets and blankets with fringes or tassels look particularly casual, while woollen blankets and bedspreads look very cosy and cuddly.
  • Whichever blanket design you choose, it is important that you take proper care of your blanket to ensure that you will enjoy it for a long time. Therefore, always follow the care instructions and only wash your blanket when absolutely necessary. Often, just a tap is enough.
