Well, the ones they hand out at my cold weathr shelter are terrible. They say on the label they are made from 305 WOOL AND 705 man made fiber. Of
course, they do not tel you what the fiber are, but it sure looks like recycled plastic and dryer lint to me. I cannot even lay on them, or I itch and
the fibers get into my skin. I can't put them near my face, or I cannot breathe the next day, and I am constantly picking out these litle skinny
platic things out my clothing. Many people are complaining of the same thing, so it is not just me. And several are getting sick and really feel it
has something to do with the blankets.
Like someone posted earlier, disaster blankets are made for one use, not several. Not to mention, it does say right on the lablem that they are not to
be dry cleaned or laundered.
But, in the situation I am in, I guess I have no choice but to continue using them.
Thanks for listening.
