Modern electric blankets today are used widely because they have enhanced features that make them safe. An electric plug is inserted into a wall outlet that powers the whole appliance. The heat is generated by wires inside the blanket. A thermostat controls the temperature, although other brands use rheostats to more effectively control temperature and prevent hotspots. The use of safer, more durable, and non-flammable carbon fiber wires also enhances safety. Heat is circulated either through wires or hot fluid that flows inside the blanket. Outside, an electric warmer looks no different from an ordinary blanket. A full electric blanket is big enough to cover the entire bed, while sheets are also available that is good for only one person.
Folded blankets are easy to keep in the linen closet. They take up very little space and are always ready when you need them. If you have extra unexpected guests, a down throw blanket laid on the couch with another to use as a cover is a quick and very comfortable bed.
Down is nature's perfect insulator. Nothing beats the cozy comfort of a down filled blanket or comforter. The soft undercoat of feathers found on ducks and geese has been used for centuries as a filler in blankets, quilts and mattresses to provide extreme comfort, softness and warmth.
A knitter can make a patchwork quilt out of colored squares. She can make small swatches using the basic knit stitch until she has enough to constitute the size of a blanket. Once she has reached that point, she only has to sew the squares together by hand to create a hand-made quilt. She can alternate squares in the recipient's college colors or choose shades that coordinate with the decor of the room in which it will be placed. Lace, fringe or some other kind of trim can be sewn around the edges on both sides of the blanket.
