There are five main factors to determine the quality of a moving blanket;

Weight: A blankets weight is often referred to in lbs. per dozen. The more a dozen blankets weigh the thicker the batting. Weight can also be effected by blanket material. A heavier Woven fabric is a denser material than Non-Woven and as a result will weigh more.

Material: There are 3 different types of fabric material commonly used in the manufacturing of moving blankets:
  • Poly/Cotton Blends blankets are constructed from polyester/cotton fibers woven with one another to provide ultimate protection and durability. Because of the cotton fibers in the material, blankets with a polyester/cotton blend are softer and the most tear resistant moving pads available. Heavier in weight, polyester/cotton Moving Blankets are made for multiple uses and constructed with repeated use in mind. These are typically the moving pads found in the back of the truck of professional moving companies.
  • Woven blankets are constructed from synthetic polyester fibers woven with one another to manufacture a much durable, stronger, tear resistant fabric. Typically heavier in weight, Woven Moving Blankets are made for multiple uses and perfect repeat moves.
  • Non-Woven blankets are constructed from synthetic polyester that is bonded together by pressure and heat using chemicals or other solvent. Non-woven moving pads are more resistant to snags and tears and are typically the most economical solution for the do-it-yourself mover. Do not let the price fool you, these are not "cheap moving blankets". Lower weight, Non-Woven Moving Blankets are highly sought after an ideal choice for limited use or one-time moves.

Binding: Most all blankets are constructed with a binding (finished edge) that run around the entire blanket. The best Binding Material is made of polyester. It provides a clean, finished look and prevents tearing. Blankets that do not have binding can easily tear when pressure is applied. This is the case with most Textile Blankets (aka Skins). Our Textile Blankets are made with an inter-locking stitch binding for greater tear resistance.

Stitching: Often overlooked, the stitching is one of the more important factors in determining the true quality of a moving blanket. The Best moving blankets use cotton stitching and a Double-Lock stitch. Cheap moving blankets use typically use a synthetic material not unlike that found in fishing line to stitch the components together. It is cheaper and strong however, can easily come unraveled and depending on your intended use, is harmful to pets. All of our moving blankets use cotton stitching for maximum strength.

Batting: Ever buy moving blankets and ask why "Moving Blankets smell like oil" or "The moving blankets have a chemical smell"? The answer is not all that complicated and a true indicator of a quality moving blanket.

  • Oil Smell: The oil or chemical odor comes from the use of post-consumer recycled material in the batting (filler) of the blanket.

To keep cost in manufacturing low, most moving blankets are constructed with recycled post-consumer material. The use of this material is what typically causes that foul oil smelling odor found in cheap moving blankets. During the recycling process, various chemicals are used to breakdown the post-consumer products derived from recycling bins and landfills. All of our blankets use 100% pre-consumer material which allows us to skip the process of introducing chemicals and other solvents into the filler making our moving blanket oil smelling free. It may cost a little more, but it seems a far better price to pay than having furniture that smells like an oil drum.
