Less warmth, please

You might recall I replaced my great old down quilt this winter. The new down quilt has been serving me well. But now that the weather is heating up, the down quilt keeps me too warm.

So I found this thin quilt today. About twenty-five bucks. One of the big selling points was its lack of a floral pattern. Hurray for a simple solid color! (Yes, gray is a color.)

It’s supposed to be in the low fifties tonight. That should be good for a Goldilocks test. Will the blanket keep me too cold, too warm, or just right? (No porridge, thank you.)

UPDATE: It was just right.


  1. Not anything like a bear rug, although the weave pattern does have an aesthetically pleasing pattern as well.

  2. A flannel sheet/blanket can be a good in between solution and doesn't take up as much storage space as a comforter. Plus the flannel can be an added layer in really cold temperatures.

    1. I have yet to find any flannel that meets my visual aesthetics criteria. :D
