What makes Waffle Weave a Classic Blanket for your Home?
What is Waffle Weave?
Waffle fabric, or honeycomb fabric, has raised threads forming little rectangles. It can be made by knitting or weaving. Waffle weave produces a structural effect. The warp and weft threads are interlaced and floating, creating small square ridges and hollows in the fabric in a regular pattern that looks like a waffle, hence the name.
What is the purpose of a waffle blanket?
Waffle weave blankets are typically used as a lightweight and breathable bedding layer for warmth and comfort. The distinctive waffle texture allows air to circulate through the blanket, which helps regulate body temperature and prevent overheating. Luxurious waffle weave blankets are often made from high-quality cotton from the Haryana region of India. They are durable, lightweight, and easy to care for. They can be used independently as a light cover in warmer weather or as an extra layer of warmth in colder months. In addition to being used as bedding, waffle weave blankets are commonly used as throws for sofas, chairs, or outdoor seating areas. Their lightweight and breathable nature makes them ideal for various settings, from the bedroom to the bathroom to the great outdoors. From waffle weave throws to king-size waffle weave blankets, Aston & Arden has everything you need to stay cozy.
Do waffle weave blankets keep you warm?
Waffle weave blankets utilize the pockets of air trapped within the squares of the weave for retaining heat, making them an ideal choice for colder climates. This type of fabric is commonly associated with soft and cozy items such as robes, towels, and blankets. The honeycomb weave is plush and snuggly, allowing for airflow, making it highly absorbent and quick to dry. Waffle fabric can still be lightweight, depending on the tightness of the weave. Still, the design of the weave creates a warm layer of air next to the skin, making it an excellent choice for winter clothing and bedding.
How do you wash a waffle weave blanket?
Waffle weave blankets are durable and easy to care for. Here are some general guidelines for washing waffle weave blankets:
- Check the care label: Always check the care label on the blanket for any specific washing instructions. Follow any instructions or recommendations given by the manufacturer.
- Wash in cold water: Wash your waffle weave blanket in cold water using a gentle cycle to prevent shrinking or damage to the fabric.
- Use a mild detergent: Use a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics or wool. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, which can damage the blanket's fibers.
- Tumble dry on low to medium heat: Waffle weave blankets should be air dried but can be tumble dried on low/medium heat to prevent shrinking or damage to the fabric. Avoid high heat, as this can damage the fibers of the blanket.
- Do not iron: Waffle weave blankets should not be ironed, as the heat can damage the fabric's fibers.
- Store properly: Once your waffle weave blanket is clean and dry, store it in a cool, dry place to prevent mildew or damage to the fabric.
As waffle weave is a looser knit fabric, the blanket will lint after the first wash. By following our care guidelines, you can keep your Aston & Arden waffle weave blanket looking and feeling new for years to come.
