Why cellular blankets?
Cellular blankets are woven with cell-like holes in the pattern. They are commonly woven from cotton, polyester, acrylic or wool. The cells or holes in the blanket allow air to move into the fibres, which heat up with the warmth of the body and the warm air becomes trapped inside the layers. Above all, this causes the blanket to warm up more quickly than one with a non-cellular weave.
In Winter months or when you are feeling a chill, it is recommended that you wrap up in many of these blankets for the most effective warm-up.
The lightweight, breathable design of blanket is also useful in Summer months, especially the cotton ones, as they can keep a breeze out without overheating. For instance, hospital maternity wards and private birth centres rely on these blankets all year round to keep newborn babies warm in cribs and cots.
Likewise, nursing homes use these single bed size blankets to keep residents warm without getting overheated.
