Types of Moving Blankets
There are a few different kinds of moving blankets, but two main categories of Thick Moving Blankets and Thin Moving Blankets, with some in-between.
Thick Moving Blankets may also be referred to as quilted, professional, or heavy duty. The main feature of these high quality blankets is their thickness. These blankets are often made of woven fabric and are heavier when comparing weight.
Thin Moving Blankets may also be referred to as cheap, economy, or felt. The main feature of these lower quality blankets is their price. They are usually made with a non-woven material that is pressed and are lighter when comparing weight.
Some blankets may be made of micro fiber, wool, or burlap, but most moving blankets are made out of a durable polyester/cotton blend. They can also come in a variety of colors and patterns such as black or camouflage, but the most popular type is solid blue. Almost all moving blankets measure 72” x 80”. Also, most moving blankets are made in China, but there are still some that are made in the United States.
