The blanket is a commonly used bedding, which has the function of keeping warm and is thinner than a quilt, and its raw materials are mostly animal fibers. The quality of the blanket is related to the density, weight, and twisting method of the plush fiber in addition to the characteristics and processing of the fiber. The denser and thicker the pile, the heavier the pile weight per unit area, the better the texture and appearance of the blanket can be maintained, and basically, the short and densely woven blanket is more durable.
There are two main ways to check the density and elasticity of general short wool blankets. First of all, you can use your thumb to press on the blanket, and it will quickly return to its original shape after pressing, indicating that the weaving density and elasticity are good: or the blanket can be bent. The harder it is to see the bottom pad, it means that the plush is more densely woven and more durable. As for the importance of the plush, you can see the instructions on the label.
Identification of the composition of blankets Many people think that cashmere is fine wool, but it is not. Cashmere is different from wool. Cashmere is grown on goats, wool is grown on sheep.
As for the difference between cashmere and wool, we can also confirm in these ways.
The scale arrangement of wool is denser and thicker than that of cashmere, and its shrinkage is greater than that of cashmere. Cashmere fiber has small and smooth scales on the outside, and there is an air layer in the middle of the fiber, so it is light in weight and feels smooth and waxy.
The crimp degree of wool is smaller than that of cashmere, and the number of crimps, the crimp rate, and the crimp recovery rate of cashmere fibers is all larger. Reduction characteristics, especially in the aspects of no shrinkage after washing and good shape retention. Because cashmere has a high natural crimp, it is closely arranged in spinning and weaving and has good cohesion, so it has good heat retention, which is 1.5 times to 2 times that of wool.
