Full Answer

A wool blend, a combination of wool and other materials, offers the warmth of natural wool without the roughness. Additional blanket materials that provide warmth and comfort are cotton, fleece, cashmere and chenille. Cotton is a breathable fabric that is excellent for multiple purposes and levels of cold weather. Fleece is a synthetic material that is often used for warm blankets. Chenille and cashmere are more expensive but finer fabrics for blankets.
