coral wool


The raw material of coral wool is generally polyester (chemical fiber fabric). The wool is named for its coral shape. It is easy to generate static electricity in winter. It is easy to deform and lose hair after washing. Because the process is the simplest, the price is also relatively cheap.




The raw material of flannel is usually woolen fabric mixed with wool. The wool is soft, the fabric is compact and warm. Compared with coral velvet, it has better texture and comfort, and the cost is higher than coral velvet. It is usually considered an upgraded version of coral velvet.




Raschel's raw material is mainly acrylic fiber (chemical fiber fabric), known as synthetic wool, which is woven by the Raschel warp knitting machine. The woven blanket is thick and not easy to shed hair, and the wool feels soft and fluffy. After washing, the warmth retention will not be affected and will not be inadvertently deformed. Raschel blankets are more colorful than ordinary blankets.


These three types of blankets are common in the market, and Raschel's price is relatively high. However, the finished products produced by its weaving method are not easy to fall off, and the pile surface is fluffy and feels better than the other two blankets. Raschel blankets are preferred within the price acceptance range.


Flannel and coral velvet fabrics are the same, but flannel is an upgraded version of coral velvet. Its warmth and texture are higher than coral velvet, but the cost is lower than Raschel. The production process of coral velvet is the simplest and the price is relatively cheap.


Therefore, we can choose a flannel blanket within the price budget, and then consider a coral blanket.
