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 options thanks to the wide variety of designs: from simple blankets in plain (1) and eye-catching geometric patterns (2) to models with abstract motifs (3) or in classic checkered design (4) to blanket designs with curved lines (5), there is something to suit every taste. Plain blankets with multi-colored yarn, which impress with their mottled look, are also a special variant.

2. Finding the right size for your designer blanket

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

  • Bedspreads are usually almost square and therefore also suitable for completely covering king-size beds.
  • Classic blankets and also wool blankets usually come in the typical rectangular format. They are therefore just the right size to keep you warm while reading or watching TV on the sofa or in an armchair. On a bed, they can at most be used as a scarf or throw.
  • Baby blankets usually have a square format and are a maximum of 100 cm in diameter.

3. Material and feel

Bedspreads can be made from a wide variety of materials and have numerous different feels thanks to the many different weaves. However, if quality and durability are important to you, opt for a blanket made of natural material or a blanket with a mix of natural and synthetic fibers.
In addition to cotton and linen blankets, which are growing in popularity due to their casual look, high-quality wool blankets are above all temperature-regulating and, with the right care, extremely durable. They can be made from different types of wool, namely:

  • Sheep's wool
  • Merino wool
  • alpaca wool
  • Cashmere wool
  • Lamb wool
    The special thing about blankets made from a mix of natural and synthetic fibers is that they combine the advantages of both materials and are therefore robust and easy to care for at the same time.

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

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

Regardless of the type of blanket, always follow the product instructions or the care label before cleaning, as designer wool blankets can quickly become damaged if cared for incorrectly.

Shaking out is often enough 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, it is essential to use wool detergent and to use the cold wash cycle with a low spin setting. In addition, wool blankets should never be dried in the dryer, but always in the open air - preferably spread out so that they do not lose their shape or create unsightly creases. However, you should avoid direct sunlight as much as possible to prevent the colors from fading.

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

  • Whether as a cuddly blanket, living blanket or sofa blanket - the designs of blankets are as varied as their possible uses. What is certain, however, is that they always add a special accent to your home.
  • The right size or shape of blanket should always be considered when buying one: While bedspreads are usually almost square, classic blankets and wool blankets are usually found in the typical rectangular format.
  • There are also many different blanket designs in terms of material and feel, each of which has its own advantages and creates different styles. Knitted blankets and blankets with fringes or tassels look particularly casual, while woollen blankets and bedspreads look very cozy and cuddly.
  • Whichever blanket design you choose, it is very important to look after your blanket properly so that you can enjoy it for a long time. Therefore, always follow the care instructions and only wash your blanket when absolutely necessary. It is often enough to pat it out.
