The main types of photo blankets are woven, knitted and dyed photo blankets. Woven photo blankets are made using digital software that scans a picture, creates a pattern and then creates a woven picture blanket using various colored yams. There are two varieties of a woven photo blanket: an afghan photo blanket and a tapestry photo blanket. A tapestry photo blanket is made with a yam of two different diameters while the yam used in the weave of an afghan photo blanket is the same width in both horizontal and vertical directions.
A knitted photo blanket is made using a machine that uses the same scanning process and pattern process by knitting the yams together in a looping technique. Most photo blankets are made up of limited colors caused by the knitting process and the continuous thread forming loops in the process.
A dyed photo blanket is the most recent type of photo blanket and is made by printing dye onto fabric from a digital photo. This type gives room for unlimited colors and has the sharpest picture clarity of the three.
