Moving Blankets 101


Moving Blanket Basics


Most of our blankets and moving pads are the standard 72" x 80" size. All of our blankets are stitched in a chevron pattern and have recycled cotton fiber filling. This also causes the weight of a blanket on a "per-dozen" basis, and the very heaviest blanket we sell is our Mover at 95-pounds/dozen.



Woven vs. Non-Woven Blankets


This refers to the material of the body and the binding of the blanket. Woven blankets are more durable because they are threaded while non-woven blankets are pressed and heated.



"Good" Blankets


These economical blankets are great for limited use and range in weight from 43-pounds/dozen to 65-pounds/dozen. They also have a non-woven body and non-woven binding.




"Better" Blankets


These mid-range blankets can withstand repeated use. This is because the blanket has a woven body with non-woven binding. The weight of blankets in our "Better" category also range from 65-pounds/dozen to 85-pounds/dozen.




"Best" Blankets


These are our most durable and high-quality blankets. They range from 75-pounds/dozen to 95-pounds/dozen and feature a woven body with woven binding. These moving blankets can be machine washed without damaging the integrity of the blanket.




Lightweight Moving Pads & Skins


We also have moving pads that are just 26-pounds/dozen. These are great for single use moves and light-duty shipping. Lacy has more information on these economical moving pads in the video below.
