2. How to Transform Your Blanket from a Flat Cloth to a Textured Slice of Heaven
Do I want a 4 Layer or 8 Layer Blanket?
We currently offer oversized throws, twins, and queens in 4 layers. Our 8 layer blankets are offered in oversized throws, queen and king sizes. Made of the same GOTS cotton muslin material, they both are deliciously soft and have a puffy grid pattern upon washing.
The 4 Layer Blanket is best in a warmer climate as a top layer. Sarah used this blanket to sleep with the windows open in August when she was testing the product. It's such a relief to turn off the air conditioner and listen to the sounds of nature without overheating at night. It is lightweight and has tremendous bounce and a tighter grid pattern. In throw size, it is stunning over a couch.
The 8 layer is really our signature blanket and its versatility makes it stand out as a year round slice of heaven. We recommend using the 8 layer alone during the warmer months as it provides enough warmth but with incredible breathability to cut down on sweating or overheating under the covers. In cooler weather, like the 4 layer, it makes a more substantial bottom layer under a duvet.
Transforming Your Blanket from a Flat Cloth to a Textured Slice of Heaven
Upon arrival at your door, your Gray Heron blanket will be enclosed in a sweet, reusable cinch bag. When you remove your new Gray Heron from the bag, it will look more like a table cloth than the blanket you admired on the website. Do not worry! You will want to first wash the blanket on a gentle or permanent press cold water setting. Your blanket will emerge from the wash with that wonderful, textured grid pattern. Once dried, (dry on a lower setting or line dry), the blanket will feel just as you'd wished it would!
