How to use couch blankets
Generally speaking there is no rule on how to use the blanket on the sofa, but the most recommended is that it should be placed in a stripped manner, as if it had been "thrown" on the furniture.
Blankets usually mark the end of the furniture, being much used folded in the base or the part of the backrest. But avoid using it stretched over the entire seat.
The size of the blanket is also important and should follow, a priori, the size of the sofa, ie small sofa with small blanket and large sofa with large blanket. The advantage of large blankets is that they can be folded up to the optimum size, but only in cases of light fabrics, since the thick fabrics become very bulky when folded.
