Summer-weight blankets are our lightest weight blankets woven in 4 fine layers of gauze.  Standard gauze is woven in two layers (often referred to as double gauze or double cloth). Although our summer-weight blankets are made twice as thick, they are still luxuriously breathable and softer than any gauze you've felt. The summer-weight puckers, but to less of a degree than our all-season gauze. Summer-weight blankets do not have a large border, but are designed simply with one layer of quadruple woven gauze that puckers upon washing.
