What To Look For In Rubik’s Cube Blankets
In this section, we’ll go over what to look for in a Rubik’s cube blanket.
Before we get into this, you need to know a little about how making a specialty blanket works.
Sellers often go through a printer or manufacturer who takes a blanket and prints or embeds a unique pattern on it, in this case, cube-themed images.
Still, this means you need to look at the blanket to tell its quality.
This is where a guide like this will come in handy.
Here is what we recommend you watch out for.
Blankets must, first and foremost, be comfortable.
Check out the thread count, material, and other things like this to determine its level of comfort, but more than this, listen to what actual users have to say.
This is what we did when we shopped around for blankets to use as our canvas for super cube-themed blankets.
Keep in mind: comfort isn’t objective; it depends on the person.
Some may prefer heavy and warm (that’s me!) while others prefer light and silky to the touch.
Take a moment while shopping to think about what you prefer and keep this in mind.
We put this element next because blankets are an investment. They often cost a little more, and there’s little worse in the world than buying something and having it last only a short time.
We avoid this altogether by making our blankets out of the most durable materials and construction we could find.
You don’t have to worry about our being a waste of money. You’ll have it for a long time.
My cousin once bought a blanket online and was extremely excited about it. When they got it in the mail, they were heartbroken.
They didn’t bother to look at the size when they ordered it, and now it wouldn’t even cover their legs!
Any seller worth their salt will offer blankets in various sizes, but you need to make sure you know what you’ll get for that size.
Take some time to measure or eyeball out what you think you’ll need and triple-check you click the right option.
Speaking of seller’s worth their salt, that’s us! We make sure to offer our blankets in various sizes.

Type Of Blanket
There are a ton of different types of blankets out there. Do you know which kind you want?
Take the time to figure it out for yourself.
When it comes to specialty blankets (such as printed Rubik’s cube blankets), there are three common types:
Plush Blankets - Plush blankets are single-layer material blankets. They’re usually lighter and soft to touch.
Fleece Blankets - These are more focused on being heavier, warm, and fluffy to the touch.
Duvet Covers - Duvets are basically comforters with replaceable outsides. It’s like a comforter meets a pillow w/ pillowcase.
The insert is something you need to have already, and what you get is a soft, durable cover to go around the insert, which provides warmth and weight based on your preference.
Wouldn’t you know it? We offer Rubik’s cube throw blankets in all these types!
Material is key to the weight and feeling of the blanket.
Common materials include:
- Sherpa Fleece - Heavy yet soft
- Microfiber - Silky and durable
- Polyester - Durable and light
Blanket Vs. Throw Blanket
We hear people ask all the time:
What’s the difference between a blanket and a throw blanket?
Really, throw blankets are a subcategory of blankets.
Throw blankets are intended to be put on top of furniture and moved around as needed. Most often, these are “thrown” on the backs of chairs, couches, and sectionals.
This doesn’t mean you can’t use them on your bed; it just means they’re small and light enough to stay out of the way in a high-traffic area.
Fleece and plush blankets are good examples of Rubik’s cube throw blankets.
About Our 3 Rubik’s Cube Blanket Types
In this section, we’ll give you some details about our 3 options available.
Keep in mind: we offer various patterns on each blanket type, so you’ll need to click the links and images around this to learn more about the design.
Use this section to help you learn a little more about each type.
Sherpa Fleece Blanket
This is one of our top sellers (and one I love to have in my living room!).
It’s a Sherpa Fleece design, meaning it has some weight for warmth while still being fuzzy/fluffy to the touch.
It’s made of polyester and quite durable; use it inside or outside.
The print is on one side while the pattern is proudly (and durably) printed on the other.
It has hemmed edges for more durability and won’t come apart at the seams under normal usage.
All in all, it makes an excellent Rubik’s cube throw blanket.
We carry this in two standard sizes:
- 50” x 60”
- 60” x 80”
Microfiber Duvet Cover
Make your bedroom or guest room a cube-themed haven of comfort with one of our duvet covers.
This blanket is made from 100% lightweight microfiber polyester.
It’s light and feels smooth to the touch (while also being insanely durable).
As a duvet cover, you’ll need to make sure the size lines up with your insert for it to fit.
The zipper is invisible, so no one will see the tacky thing once it’s on your bed.
The weight and warmth are determined by your insert (not included), but the cover was made to be tough, long-lasting, and easily cleaned.
Note: Sizes follow typical dimensions for the bed sizes.
Velveteen Plush Blanket
This is another perfect Rubik’s cube throw blanket, but there are many who also use this at the end of their bed when they need a little extra warmth.
As a 100% polyester plush blanket, you'll be comfortable underneath this silky and light cover.
It’s printed on one side with amazing patterns with a simple but smooth underneath for you to cuddle with.
We include a double-needle topstitch at all seams to ensure it doesn’t come apart at the seams when used repeatedly.
This was critical to us because we know once you feel and see it, you’ll be using it all the time.
- 30” x 40”
- 50” x 60”
- 60” x 80”
