I need a new blanket
May 1, 2016 9:51am CST
Well, I don't need exactly, but I want a new blanket. I need something that has more weight than a sheet does, but less than a winter heavy blanket. I can't sleep well without something with a little weight, but what I have is way to hot! It doesn't help that the dogs feel as though they must pile on me, and at least one will dig at the covers if you don't let him under them. I wake up and finding him scrabbling at them, like he is trying to dig to China, the spoiled little monster. Any suggestions? Surely someone out there has discovered the ultimate in summer bedding materials.

I do not exactly know the blanket kind my kids we're using we are in a tropical country and during the night we turn on the air con for us to sleep well. The blanket they are using we're more like of that of the flanell cloth but a bit thicker but still smooth. Not too heavy and breathable.

I have just gone through the same.... I took my duvet off a month or so ago... and put a lightweight fleece blanket on ... which was perfect... it was nice and light... but gave me a lovely warm snug feeling... the last three nights ... I have even kicked that aside during the night.....

My mother used to have flannel blankets. They're lightweight, definitely not heavy and sounds like just what you're looking for. The trick is do they still have them. I haven't looked for blankets lately, but I don't recall seeing them since I left home at the tender age of 18. Next time I go to Wal-Mart I'll take a look to see if they have them.

Can you knit or crochet? I've made bedspreads in everything from very fine yard to very bulky and heavy yarn and the weight really does depend on the yarn I use. But those things last forever! I have one that I made about 30 years ago and it's still getting the job done and looks great! And I made it in pieces so I didn't have to sit with something heavy on me, especially in summer! :)
