benefits of cotton blankets

Cotton is the most popular choice for blankets and other bedding for good reason. Cotton bed blankets are widely available, come in variety of colors, weaves and styles and they're affordable when compared to blankets made from other natural fibers such as wool. Blankets made from 100% cotton and those from a cotton blend are soft, comfortable, durable and beautiful.

Other benefits include:

Luxury Supima Cotton Blanket

Private Essential Cotton Blanket
  • - Cotton blankets are more lightweight than wool but still offer warmth, especially when layered. People who fluctuate between hot and cold while they're sleeping can use two or three light cotton blankets on their bed and peel them off as needed.

  • - Cotton is extremely durable. A well-made blanket can be expected to last for decades, and cotton products tend to become softer and cozier with each washing.

  • - Because of its natural absorbency, cotton is easy to dye and maintains a vibrant color wash after wash. This also means cotton blankets are available in more colors and designs than offered by other fabrics.

  • - No other type of bedding washes as well or as easily as cotton. Cotton blankets are washer and dryer safe and never need ironing. Because it can be washed in hot water, you can rest assured your bedding is clean and sanitary no matter what life throws at it.

  • - Cotton is king when it comes to comfort. As a natural fiber cotton breathes, helping to regulate your body temperature as you sleep. Cotton blankets are soft to the touch and comfortable during all seasons.

  • - The versatility of cotton allows for many different types of weaves, such as a waffle weave, herringbone, matelasse, chevron or diamond weave. These means cotton blankets can be beautiful even in the subtle and neutral shades most people prefer.




buying a cotton blanket

Not all cotton blankets are created equal. Egyptian cotton and SupimaŽ cotton are considered the standard for luxury blankets. Egyptian and SupimaŽ cotton contain extra-long fibers, also known as staples, and that extra length allows for a softer, more velvety material that's also more durable.


Gram weight is another important factor when selecting a cotton blanket. Lightweight blankets weigh 200-240 grams per yard, medium weight is 320-380 grams per yard and heavyweight blankets weigh in at 400 grams or more per yard. Heavy is not always better, depending on your personal preference. But when comparing products it's important to also compare weight, not just price or cotton type.


Choose cotton blankets like the Easy Elegance from LinenSource when you need a basic blanket for warm-weather use. Light blankets like Easy Elegance are also perfect for layering when extra warmth or versatility is needed. For a touch of elegance, consider the Luxury Supima which weighs in at a whopping 420 grams and boasts a beautiful matalesse design you'll be proud to share with guests or give as a gift.
