What's in This Guide?
Fall is here, and that means cooler weather is on the horizon. Unfortunately, that also means bedtime is drawing near as well. If you’re like most people, you probably want to wrap yourself up in a warm blanket at night. However, if you’re trying to keep your bed cool without using any extra energy, a throw blanket may not be the best option. Throw blankets are designed to be lightweight and airy, which makes them great for covering up during the day but terrible at keeping your bed cool at night. To layer your throw blanket and achieve the perfect temperature for sleeping, follow these tips.
What You’ll Need
What You’ll Need:
-A throw blanket
-A bed sheet
-Twine or cord
1. Lay the throw blanket on your bed and unfold it.
2. Spread the bed sheet over the blanket, making sure the edges of the sheet overlap the edges of the blanket.
3. Place your pillowcase over the top of the bed sheet, making sure that it covers all of the blanket.
4. Take a piece of twine or cord and knot it around one corner of the pillowcase so that it forms a loop. Make sure to tuck in any excess fabric so that there is no visible seam when you are done.
How to Do It
When it comes to bedding, it’s all about convenience. You want something that you can quickly throw on in your sleep and get up feeling refreshed and ready for the day. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by layering a blanket on top of another blanket.
To layer a blanket, start by putting a light blanket on the bottom of your bed. This will help to keep you warm while you sleep. Onto this, add a heavier blanket to create warmth and comfort. You can use any combination of blankets you like, so feel free to experiment until you find what works best for you.
Another benefit of layering blankets is that they will trap heat. This means that even when it’s cold outside, you’ll be able to stay warm indoors thanks to the layers of fabric trapping heat. So why not try layering a blanket today and see how it makes your bed feel?
What to Look for in a Throw Blanket
Throw blankets are versatile pieces of bedding that can be used in a variety of ways. They are perfect for use as a regular blanket on the bed, or as a cover to put over your sleeping bag when camping or hiking. There are different types of throw blankets available on the market, so it is important to know what to look for when selecting one.
The most important factor to consider when selecting a throw blanket is its weight and size. A heavy blanket will be warmer than a light one, but a large blanket will take up more space and be less versatile. Generally, the heavier the blanket, the softer it will be and the better it will insulate.
Another important factor to consider is the fabric. A fleece fabric is warm but lightweight, while cotton is soft but less insulation-rich. Polyester blankets are also popular because they are both warm and lightweight, but they may not last as long as other fabrics due to their low resistance to stains and wear.
What to Do If It’s Too Warm Outside
If it’s too hot outside to sleep in your PJs, there are some things you can do to keep comfortable. One way is to layer a blanket on top of your pajamas. This will help keep you warm without having to wear as many clothes. You can also use a fan to circulate the air and make it cooler outside. If that doesn’t work, consider going outside for a short while. The cool air will help you wake up and start the day refreshed.
