Choosing yarn for a blanket

Handmade blankets come in many different sizes, so you can choose anything from making a baby blanket to crafting a blanket for a double bed. However, size is far from the only important decision you need to make; you also have to choose the type of yarn. The quality of the yarn has a significant impact on the final result, so it's a choice that should be carefully considered.

Wool blankets are very warm, making them perfect for winter chill. They can be used indoors for cozying up on the sofa, and if you knit or crochet a baby blanket in wool yarn, it will also be perfect for cold days when the baby sleeps outside in the stroller.

In comparison, a cotton blanket will not be as warm but will have a certain weight to it. This makes cotton blankets great for summer use, especially suitable for young children who may find the weight of the blanket comforting. Cotton blankets also have the great advantage of being machine washable at high temperatures, which is beneficial for hygiene, especially for baby blankets.

Last but not least, you can also consider making a blanket using a yarn quality that is a blend of wool and cotton. Here you get good qualities from both materials, which can be the right choice if you want a blanket that can be used all year round.
