How to estimate the warmth of a blanket?

Warmth of a blanket is mainly determined by its density. The higher the density, the warmer a plaid or blanket is. You can see the exact density under the “Details” tab. For clarity, we indicate this with the balls.

201 – 300g/ m2
These are the lightest throws, such as cashmere baby throw blankets.

301 – 400g/m2
This category includes, for example, Merino/Cashmere blend throws. This is a good option for people with sensitive skin, for whom it is important that the plaid is very soft and light.

401 – 500g/m2
Most our throws have this density. They are definitely warm enough to wrap around on the sofa or at the computer in the evening.

401 – 500g/m2  
In the warmer time of year, a four ball blanket (see New Zealand wool blankets) is enough for most people to sleep comfortably under. It wraps smoothly around the body and retains natural warmth well.
This warmth category also includes the summer duvet. A 300 g/m2 woollen layer enveloped by a double layer of cotton, increasing the overall insulation value.
A slightly warmer option is the merino blanket Vanilla. This is woven in such a way that it looks like a coat. Over time, the airiness decreases slightly, but the warmth remains the same.

501g/m2 >
If you want an even warmer blanket – go for Merino wool blanket. This is about a third thicker than the New Zealand blanket. In the cold season, these blankets are also great to use as an additional warm layer on top of your duvet.
Warmte wordt vooral bepaald door de dichtheid. Hoe hoger is de dichtheid, hoe warmer een plaid of deken is. De exacte dichtheid kunt u onder de tab “Details” zien. Voor de duidelijkheid geven we dit aan met de balletjes.

The type of wool also affects the feeling of warmth. You can read more about the types of wool here.
