Cotton blankets have a number of desirable traits.
They are hypoallergenic and soft- perfect for babies, people who suffer from allergies, or anyone who has sensitive skin.
They also tend to be more breathable than other materials, which makes them a good option in the summer to help regulate your temperature and keep you cool when it’s hot out.
A blanket made of silk or satin has a very soft and rich feel. It’s light enough to help you sleep during hot summer nights, and won’t absorb body sweat like cotton will.
Unlike other materials that are made from plants, silk is made by an insect known as a silkworm. Silkworms made cocoons that are spun into fibers.
Eventually, the material becomes a silk satin (1). It is often preferred over straight satin because of the way it feels.
As a bast fiber, linen fibers vary from 25 to 150 mm in length.

Bamboo is a material made of bamboo grass.
It does not require pesticides to grow, which makes it a sustainable and chemical-free product that is loved by anyone with sensitive skin.
Bamboo is made of rayon. It is created by dissolving bamboo pulp into its cellulose component. Then it is spun into fibers where it lasts even longer than other forms of fabric.
Because of this, a bamboo blanket may last longer than other forms of materials. The bamboo plant is highly absorbent, which makes it a good option for a summer blanket.
