Blankets: An essential item for every home

In simple terms, a blanket is a large piece of woven cloth that is basically used for the purpose of keeping the user warm while he/she is sleeping or lying down. A common material in every household during winter or in places with cold climates, blankets are a necessity today for all members of a family. Blankets work by not letting the radiant heat from the user's body escape, thus keeping him/her warm, irrespective of how cold the outside weather it. Over the last few years, blankets have gone through a huge transformation. Along with keeping the user warm, these are also used as a home decor item today, with people going to great lengths to buy blankets that give their rooms a novel and alluring look. Another important point to note here is that people are increasingly willing to experiment as regards to their blankets and thus are consistently choosing blankets with colorful and unique designs and patterns.
