10 Uses of a Wool Blanket in Your Life or Home

1. Sleep better

The classic use of a wool blanket is of course on top of your bed. Wool is a breathable fiber that provides instant warmth unlike synthetic materials. It regulates itself to the individual body temperature and really is warm in winter whilst cool in summer.

2. Stay cozy on your sofa

Another classic use of a wool blanket is of course also the sofa. It is just pure comfort and coziness to cuddle under a blanket while watching a movie or tv. Always good to have more than one wool blanket around your sofa to offer also to your guests.

3. Decorate your home

While a blanket is wonderful to keep warm and comfortable it is also a very decorative element in your home. Just look at any interior magazines or type into pinterest living room or bedroom and you will spot a (wool) blanket in majority of the images. Similar to decorative pillows, wool blankets also add that extra splash of colour and style.

4. Keep one in your car

Every car owner should also always keep a wool blanket in their car for two reasons. First, a wool blanket can be a life saver if you ever get stuck in your car during cold temperatures or snow. The wool blanket will help you stay warm while you need to wait for longer periods in your car. If you ever need to assist in a car accident it can also be vital for anyone injured to be protected from the cold with a blanket.

5. Enjoy a picnic

Enjoying a nice picnic or BBQ outside is always a lot of fun and a wool blanket should not be missing on this occasion. The insulation properties of wool are perfect to keep any cold temperatures or moisture from the ground away from you. If you happen to spill any food or liquid onto the blanket, you will be surprised how easy it is to quickly wipe away the liquid before it can get absorbed. Any food stains that do occur will easily come out with a damp cloth.

6. Keep your baby comfortable

A wool blanket has also many flexible uses for a baby. A wool blanket will keep any baby snuggly warm in its pushchair or stroller. It can be used as a blanket on the floor to play inside or outside the house. The advantage of a wool blanket is that it does not catch fire, burn or melt which makes it very safe for a baby.

7. Cats and dogs also love them

Since I have my own dog, I was amazed to see how much dogs also love wool. Wherever there is a chance to snuggle onto or under a blanket, my dog goes for it. 

8. Wrap yourself

Some cultures like the people from Lesotho wear wool blankets as part of their traditional outfit which looks stunning. Nowadays you see many wool blanket manufacturers show their wool blankets also as an item to wear. A wool blanket can be an interesting addition to your fashion outfit that will also keep you comfortably warm and if needed can be easily taken off again.

9. Travel around the world

Take a little piece of home with you.  Blankets are handy on long flights as it often gets chilly and use them in your hotel for some extra warmth on top of what is provided or as a lighter option on its own if the duvet is too heavy. A blanket is a nice comforter, while also being very practical during a long trip away from home.

10. As a gift

Wool blankets are also a perfect and easy gift as you cannot go wrong with the size and they are helpful for so many purposes. Unless you choose a very bold design they also fit into everyone’s home and style.
