Summer blankets are lightweight blankets used in the summer or throughout the year in warmer climates. These blankets are often made from cotton or light wool, for a cool and comfortable night's sleep.
Summer blankets are useful when layered with a top sheet, as they can be removed during the night, if required. A light blanket offers comfort while sleeping without being too warm. Summer blankets are often used solely for decoration purposes, simply laid across the bottom of the bed to add color or a fresh look to the bedroom. Lightweight blankets are especially useful for people who have trouble regulating their body temperature, such as menopausal women or babies.
