One of the most important features of our CoolMagic (waterproof) fabric is that it forms a moisture barrier, while still being breathable. This DOES NOT mean that you can place the fabric over your face and breathe through it. It means that the fabric allows heat and water vapor to escape from inside the blanket. This keeps the user comfortable by reducing the buildup of body heat and allowing condensation to escape, all while keeping fluids out..
Our waterproof fabric is washable in hot water in commercial or home laundry. It resists abrasion, is fire retardant, and anti-microbial. And because the fabric itself prevents microbes from attaching to the blanket, super high heat washing and drying is not necessary. In fact, washing and drying on high heat settings is not recommended.
