Fleece Blanket Comparison: How We Make the Best Fleece Blankets
Sure, there are hundreds of fleece blankets on the market today. You can find them at every retailer across the country ranging from ten dollars to hundreds of dollars. But how are these blankets made and what kind of quality can you expect to find in these fleece blankets? Before you buy a fleece blanket, we suggest you compare some of the fleece blankets in the market today. Specifically, blanket quality, pride of craftsmanship, fleece blanket materials and whether or not the blankets carry a guarantee.
We're convinced our blankets, throws and baby blankets are the best blankets on the market today, we guarantee our blankets for life, under our Soft Blanket Guarantee.
When we set out, our goal was simple: Make the best fleece blankets in America. In order to do this, however, we had to understand what was wrong with all the other fleece blankets on the market today. We compared fleece blankets from dozens of top-brand stores around the country across several key categories: Quality of fleece fabrics, yarn counts, knit construction, blanket pricing, fleece blanket sizes and overall blanket quality and craftsmanship. Review after review, we found customers dissatisfied with the quality of their blankets.
Turns out that in order to make the best blankets, we had to make a blanket that is warm yet light weight; a blanket that won't shed or pill or hold pet hair. We had to make a blanket that is easy to care for, so it had to be a machine washable blanket that looked as good wash after wash as they do when they're a brand new blanket. Of course we'd have to make a soft blanket because everyone wants a soft blanket, so we aimed further, to create the softest blanket possible. A plush blanket was important too, because we wanted to make a blanket that not only felt good under the covers, but a blanket that looked beautiful as a decorative, luxury throw blanket. And to ensure our blankets met our impeccable standards, we decided to make our blankets right here in Fall River, Massachusetts so we could truly be involved in the blanket making process.
We encourage our customers to compare blankets on the market today. We did, and it's made all the difference.
Fleece Blanket Materials
The American Blanket Company difference starts with the quality of the materials we use to make our blankets. We search the world for the finest blanket materials and fabrics as we know this is the foundation to building a high quality blanket. We use only the finest 288 filament polyester yarns and softest fleece fabrics available in the world today. These fine, micro-denier fibers create ultra soft, warm and durable materials. Very few fabrics go through the painstaking processes applied to our fabrics. All of our fleece blanket fabrics go through multiple brushing and shearing steps to create our non-pilling and non-shedding blankets.
Fleece Blanket Shearing
Our fabrics are brushed and sheared on both the face and the back of each blanket 6 times to achieve a smooth, non-pilling finish. The quality of our fleece, and the meticulous care we take to make our blankets are what differentiate us from the rest of the fleece and pile blankets in the market. It takes more time and attention, but it is the only way we know our blankets will be the best blankets available today.
Fleece Blanket Stitching
Our stitching process is done using a multi-needle top and bottom cover stitch machine. This machine uses 5 cones of thread and creates an added level of durability while providing a nice decorative stitch around the hem of the blanket. We prefer to use a self-fabric hem as apposed to satin binding. Satin binding tends to break down and fray after multiple washings. Our fabric hem is much more durable (and softer!) than the satin binding and prolongs the life of our blankets.
Blankets are our Business
Our business model doesn't revolve around sourcing lower cost fibers and fabrics to hit a price point, but is designed to craft the best blanket we can and provide great value to our customers. We invest more into each product but ultimately you have the best we can create. We focus on the essential details necessary to make a product that makes customers feel good. We encourage everyone on our team to use their best judgment, and we ask ourselves every day, “Is this the best we can do and will our customers be happy with their purchase?”
