Blankets for beds

In the United States, blanket sizes are named after mattress sizes. Sometimes sellers do not even give a blanket's dimensions in inches.

Blanket size Typical dimensions
Twin 66 × 90
Twin XL 66 x 96
Full or double 80 × 90
Queen between 90 × 90 and 90 × 100
King between 108 × 90 and 108 × 100

These blanket sizes are not legal standards. The actual dimensions of a blanket can vary by an inch or two from the figures above. The dimensions of mattresses, which these blanket sizes are based, also vary. It is a good idea to measure your mattress with a tape measure before buying an expensive blanket.

At the other extreme, those with a California King mattress that is extra-deep, say 15 inches, and Thus ideally they need a blanket that is (84 + 15 + 6 =) 105 inches long. So, only you can determine how large a blanket you need.
