With the cold weather upon us, keeping warm and comfortable at night is a major priority. To stay toasty warm throughout the night, cover yourself up with a good quality silk edge fleece blanket. To keep your fleece blankets clean throughout the years, remember to wash them only in cold or lukewarm water with your washing machine on the gentle cycle. And don’t use bleach or fabric softeners as these may damage the blanket over time. You can however use a dryer sheet for static purposes.

When you first buy a fleece blanket you might be surprised as to how thin the fabric feels. But when you wrap it around yourself, that first impression will surely fade given that they are very warm and quite soft to the touch. Whether you use your fleece blanket as a bed sheet, a convenient throw, or when traveling by car, train or plane, you’ll appreciate the warmth and comfort it provides.

You can buy fleece blankets for under ten dollars, but if you are in the market for a cheap fleece blanket, make sure you are not expecting too much. What you are likely to get for that amount of money is a very thin throw. This may be fine for certain uses, but not for others. Try to buy in person rather than on the internet, that way you’ll know exactly what you are getting.

The great advantage of polyester fleece is its weight. Indeed, it can provide warmth and softness while still remaining lightweight. A perfect solution if you don’t like heavy blankets, but still like to keep warm on cold winter nights. To get the best deals on blankets look for sales off-season when prices are lowest.
