Wave Design

Whether you’re curled up with a good book, laying down for a nap, or stargazing somewhere away from the city, wrap a waffle blanket around you to experience unparalleled comfort, warmth, and bliss. 

Richly textured and incredibly soft to touch, a waffle weave blanket is made with the coziest snuggles in mind. If you’ve never owned one of these, we’d love to tell you all about them and the many reasons why waffle weave blankets deserve to be a part of your life. 

How is Waffle Weave Different from Other Types of Weave? 

Not all blankets are made equally. Apart from the fabric, the knit or weave matters remarkably in delivering varying levels of warmth, comfort, and style. Let’s look at some of the most popular weaves you’ll come across while shopping for a blanket and what makes a waffle weave different from the rest. 

  • Waffle Weave: Anyone who loves gorging on fluffy waffles would love this weave! A waffle weave is woven to create small rectangles in a three-dimensional grid pattern - much like the delicious breakfast dish it’s named after. 

    Also known as honeycomb weave, this softly textured fabric is highly versatile and can be woven tight or loose depending on the use. In the case of a blanket, the fabric is tightly woven to make it lofty and cozy.

  • Plain Weave: Simple and classic, plain weaves are created when warp yarn passing alternately over and under weft threads. This weave is often used in apparel and furnishing fabrics. 
  • Basket Weave: In basket weave, two or more warp threads pass over and under two or more weft threads to form a criss-cross pattern like a wicker basket. It’s similar to plain weave but with more height and width. Widely used in outerwear, blankets, and draperies. 
  • Twill Weave: This is a popular type of weave for jeans, bed sheets, and other furnishings mainly because of its capacity to pack in a higher thread count than other weaves. You can identify a twill weave from its diagonal pattern. 
  • Dobby Weave: A dobby weave requires a specialized loom attachment to create intricate geometric or floral detailing on the fabric. It’s highly textured and used to make polo shirts as well as lightweight blankets. Here is our dobby weave blanket if you would like to learn more.

Types of Waffle Weave Blankets

If you’re looking to buy a waffle bed blanket, get ready to be spoilt for choice. Although we have a clear favorite (shh! it’s the last on this list), here’s an exhaustive list of various types of waffle weave blankets that you’ll find in the market. 

  • Waffle Weave Blanket with Satin Trim

    This blanket comes with satin edging to add a bit of pomp and flair. It mimics the look of the old-school acrylic blanket with satin binding that many of us have grown up around. Available in various fabrics and sizes, this plush-looking blanket is perfect for kids and grown-ups alike and makes for a beautiful baby shower present.

  • Waffle Weave Blanke with Cotton Trim

    Similar to waffle weave with satin trim but with cotton edging instead of the synthetic satin. Such blankets are mostly made of 100% natural cotton. All-cotton construction makes them lightweight and breathable – great on its own during the summers and autumns and as a base layer or bedspread during the chillier months.

  • Acrylic Waffle Bed Blanket

    These ultra-soft, lightweight blankets within satin binding are a trip down memory lane. So many of us had one around while growing up. As acrylic lacks breathability, these blankets feature loosely woven waffle weaving to avoid overheating. 

  • Silk Waffle Weave Blanket

    A silk charmeuse border combined with an exquisite waffle weave fabric is guaranteed to enhance the décor of any space. If you’re a fan of silk bedding ensembles and looking to add one of these to your collection, we recommend buying a high thread count cotton blanket finished with finest grade Mulberry silk edging. 

  • Cotton Waffle Weave Blanket

    Here comes our all-season fave! Blankets made with 100% pure cotton threads and woven in a tight or chunky waffle weave pattern are about to become your ultimate comfort companions, regardless of the season. The indented rectangular pattern combined with hypoallergenic cotton is breathable and gentle on the skin yet brilliant in trapping body heat for warmth. Curl under it for a good night’s sleep or take it with you on picnics or camping - these indoor-outdoor blankets are too good to pass up. 

Benefits of Using Cotton Waffle Blankets

It’s no secret that cotton is the fabric of choice when it comes to bedding, and waffle weave blankets made from this popular fabric are all-around winners with an enviable balance of breathability, insulation, and comfort. Here’s what makes them perfect for the best naps and coziest cuddles.

  1. Breathable

    No fabric is quite as breathable as natural cotton. But what’s great about a waffle weave cotton blanket is that it’s just the right amount of airy. The texture traps heat in its cellular pockets, enhancing the thermal properties of the fabric. Meanwhile, the cotton allows excellent airflow under the blanket to keep you from getting sweaty or chilly. 

  2. Lightweight

    Compared to its bulky comrades (think wool duvets and comforters), a waffle weave cotton blanket packs in plenty of comfort without weighing you down. These are soft, lightweight, springy, and ultra-portable. If you love venturing outdoors and prefer to keep things light, this blanket is for you.

  3. All Season Comfort

    What makes a good all-weather blanket? Lightweight, warm, breathable, waffle-textured cotton blankets tick all the right boxes. When cotton threads are woven into a waffle weave, the result is an airy, insulated fabric designed to hold warmth and distribute heat under its covers. 

  4. Versatile

    If you’ve glanced at a waffle weave cotton blanket, you’d know how lovely they look! A match made in heaven when it comes to practicality, eye-catching looks, and indulgence. Use them indoors or outdoors, in summer or winter, or to accentuate the décor of your home. These blankets will never disappoint!

  5. Hassle-Free Maintenance

    Fuss-free maintenance is another reason to love these blankets. Waffle weave blankets with high-quality interlocked cotton fibers are durable and hold their shape well, wash after wash. You can machine wash them on a gentle cycle and even tumble dry on low heat. To know more, scroll down to the care instructions below.

  6. Upcycle-Friendly

    After your cotton waffle weave blanket has served you well, don’t throw it away. Its woven fabric is known for its high absorbency, so repurposing it into kitchen towels, napkins, or cleaning rags, makes perfect sense.  

Factors to Consider When Purchasing Waffle Weave Blankets

To make sure you end up with the waffle weave blanket of your dreams, here are a few things you should keep in mind.

  1. Made from Organic Cotton

    For all-season comfort, a waffle weave cotton blanket is the right pick and even better if it is made from 100% certified organic cotton. In comparison to its water-guzzling conventional counterpart, organic cotton is grown with less water, energy, and zero pesticides. The resulting fabric is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and eco-friendly. 

  2. Pre-washed

    The thing about natural fibers like cotton, silk, and linen is that they tend to shrink a little after the first wash. To avoid any surprises, shrinkage-wise, buy a blanket made from pre-washed cotton. Pre-washed cotton blankets are softer and loftier than non-pre-washed ones. 

  3. Aesthetics and Design

    Not only are cotton waffle weave blankets warm and comfy, but they’re also crafted to elevate the style quotient of a room. A beautiful waffle blanket flung over a bed, chair, or couch will add texture and make a space more inviting. Earthy and neutral colors are chic and versatile enough to blend in with any bedding ensemble.

  4. Sustainable Packaging

    Packaging is a vital part of the product. An eco-friendly cotton waffle weave blanket wrapped in a non-biodegradable or single-use material defeats the purpose of buying a planet-friendly product in the first place. Sustainable packaging made from bio-based or recycled materials can be reused and will go well with your eco-conscious lifestyle. 

  5. Lightweight

    If you prefer your blankets light and soft, make sure their GSM, or grams per square meter, is on the lower side. The higher the GSM, the warmer it’ll get. An all-weather staple usually comes in the range of 200-500 GSM. 

  6. Easy to Pack and Travel-Friendly

    Cotton waffle blankets are lightweight and occupy a fraction of space compared to heavier and bulkier alternatives. Just fold or roll them up and stow them in your backpack or trolley bag.

  7. Easy to Wash 

    You don’t have to worry about pilling, shedding, or shrinking with waffle weave cotton blankets. Simply separate them by colors along with the rest of your laundry and wash them on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Thanks to the waffle knit, your blanket will come out looking fresh, new, and wrinkle-free.

How to Wash and Care for Your Cotton Waffle Blankets

Unlike traditional duvets and comforts that may require dry cleaning, cotton waffle weave blankets are easy to care for and machine-washable. After tossing them into the washer, pour some detergent, preferably a natural detergent, and run it on a gentle cycle. Remember to steer clear of harsh chemicals or bleach. 

As these blankets are pretty absorbent, it’s best to wash them according to colors. Once clean, you can hang dry or tumble dry it on the lowest possible setting. Pop some wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets during the cycle to speed up drying while keeping the fibers intact.
