Blanket Cloth

Blanket Cloth is a plain or twill weave fabric, made from soft feeling yarns, creating a fabric that is heavily napped on both sides. It is often dyed at the yarn stage and then woven into stripe, check or jacquard patterns and is generally reversible. This fabric is both strong and durable, as well as being warm and soft to touch. The yarns are usually brushed before being woven to increase these properties. Blanket Cloth is used primarily for blankets, as its name suggests and can now be found to be made in various weights whilst still retaining their warmth. Blanket Cloth can also have many other characteristics such as high-tensile strength, durability and flame-resistance depending on the finishes used.
