Fabric Types

Cotton Blankets & Throws

Known for their softness, durability and natural comfort. A high thread count alone is not a perfect indicator of quality, as many other factors including the kind of fibers, type of weave and finish have an impact on softness and durability.

Down Blankets & Throws

Down is the light, fluffy coating clustered beneath the feathers of waterfowl that protect them from the elements and keep them warm. Down products are efficient insulators, warm yet light.

Plush Blankets & Throws

Made with extremely soft polyester, which provides great warmth.

Fleece Blankets & Throws

Fleece is a synthetic fiber made from acrylic that’s soft and durable.

Chenille Blankets & Throws

Chenille is manufactured by placing short lengths of yarn between two yarns and twisting them together. This technique gives chenille its softness and look.

Down-Alternative Blankets & Throws

Made with synthetic fiber that’s light, strong and durable.

Lightweight, soft and warm material with a wool-like feel.
