How to Choose a Throw-Blanket in the Philippines – Buying Guide

There are many types of throw-blankets. With blanket-like throw-blankets to handmade, cute ones, etc. and different materials such as wool, cotton, microfiber, etc., it’s so confusing to choose the one perfect for you, isn’t it?
Today we will introduce the purchasing points to consider for throw-blankets. Read on to see which points suit you and which are not a priority for you.

How is a Throw-Blanket different from a Blanket?

How is a Throw-Blanket different from a Blanket?
A blanket is used to protect the body from the cold. A throw-blanket is also used to protect the body from the cold. So, how are they different?
Simply, a blanket is a sleeping tool. It covers the entire body. The primary objective is to provide its users sleep, undisturbed by the cold.
A throw-blanket is not a sleeping tool and only covers parts of the body. The throw-blanket protects the user from the cold while he/she is continuing an activity such as using a computer, watching tv or talking to friends at a cafe.
A blanket is a personal private item. One which is generally limited to use at home. A throw-blanket can be a public item, used in the home or out in public.

Check the Material

A very important purchasing point to consider is the material of the throw-blanket. There are many different types available on the market today.
If your purpose is to protect yourself from feeling cold, it is said the following materials are suitable in retaining heat: wool, acrylic, polyester. However, if you would like a throw-blanket which can be used in warmer temperatures or for babies, cotton or linen is recommended.
Let us look closely at the different materials and explore the pros and cons of each type!

Sheep Wool: High Heat Retention

Sheep Wool:  High Heat Retention
Often used in blankets, sweaters and winter related items is the fur of a sheep (wool). The wool of the Australian, New Zealand and France Merino sheep are particularly famous.
Pros
  • Heat retention
  • Highly absorbent

Cons
  • May shrink during wash

Acrylic: Easy to retain the shape

Acrylic: Easy to retain the shape
Acrylic is a synthetic fabric made from polyacrylonitrile. Among the synthetic fibers, acrylic is the most similar in texture as sheep wool. Acrylic is used in many sweaters, scarves, and other winter-related items.
Pros
  • Soft and cuddly
  • Wrinkle free
  • Bug-proof material
  • Keeps shape after washing

Cons
  • Lacks moisture absorbency and water absorbability
  • Easily causes static electricity and fuzz balls

Polyester: High Durability

Polyester: High Durability
Polyester is the easiest material to handle among the synthetic materials. Therefore, polyester or its blends is used in many products such as fleece materials.
Pros
  • High Durability
  • Wrinkle free
  • Dries quickly
  • Reasonably priced products

Cons
  • Easily causes static electricity and fuzz balls

Cotton: Feels nice and has High Water Absorbability

Cotton: Feels nice and has High Water Absorbability
Cotton is used in products which need to absorb water such as towels and T-shirts. Organic cotton is especially popular among people who want to use products made with safe ingredients. They are often used in baby-related items, baby blankets and baby towels to name a few.
Pros
  • Breathable material
  • Feels nice
  • Recommended when likely to get sweaty due to High Water Absorbability
  • Light weight material making it easy to carry around

Cons
  • Pillings produced by friction
  • May shrink during wash

Check the Size

Check the Size
Usually, a throw-blanket is half the size of a normal blanket at about 100 cm x 140 cm. This size is recommended for people who use the throw-blanket outside the house, like in the car or at work.
However, if you plan to use your throw-blanket at home, it is recommended to have a larger size. At home, you may be lounging on the sofa, stretching out your legs. In this case, a larger sized throw-blanket, similar to a blanket size, is better to cover yourself from the waist down.
Consider the location and purpose of using the throw-blanket in relation to the size (big or half size) as a purchasing point.
