A definite perk of owning a silk throw is the durability of the material. Bedding made of pure silk will last for a long time. Synthetic or satin silk is not as strong as the silk grown specifically for use in bedding products, so opt for 100% silk blankets to ensure that it will last a long while. Another benefit is that silk can keep away dust mites and other things that collect on blankets and sheets. This is great for those that tend to suffer from allergies throughout the year.
An existing blanket can be upcycled and still be a meaningful gift. A plain blanket is a good foundation for colorful embroidery and appliques. A favorite quote can be sewn onto the blanket in fancy script. A talented artist can paint an original piece of art on the blanket using acrylic paints. An old patchwork quilt can be repaired by sewing new patches over torn or faded ones. Covering worn patches with fabric in contemporary colors makes the whole quilt look new, especially if the crafter is careful to maintain the original shape of the pattern. She might want to combine personalization techniques by painting small pictures on some of the patches. She could also embroider secret messages on them.
