The winter period is gradually reaching its peak and everyone is mostly covered up in heavy clothing materials as expected. The season requires people to acquire the best clothing that will suit the cold weather like winter jackets, blankets, stocks, head warmers, hand gloves, sweaters and other cold preventive clothing materials. Regardless of the season, when people shop for clothing materials, they mostly care not about the component of the materials they are acquiring and what they are made of before purchasing and using them. It is important to check because some blankets that are used during the winter season might be dangerous to our health.
A slew of blankets are made from pure acrylic. Acrylic fibers are synthetic fibers gotten from polymer, it is wool-like, warm and soft which is good for absorption of cold but it is also harmful to our health due to the toxic substances used in its manufacturing processes. Researches have indicated that acrylic fibers can cause breast cancer in women and also causes harm to those with dermatological conditions like itching, rashes, eczema, dermatitis and redness.
It is advisable to check the components of our clothes not just for the designers and styles. Clothes made from either cotton, silk, wool, cashmere, linen, hemp, organic fabrics or organic clothing are said to be the best.
