Denier Horse BlanketsHorse blankets Denier
What denier do I need in my horse blanket?
What denier should I look for in my Turnout Horse carpet? Six hundred deniers, 1,200 deniers or a 1,680 denier? Basically, the higher the denier number, the thinner the fabric, the strong the fabric. The price of a 1200 denier horse blanket is about 15% more than a 600 denier - but a 1200 denier is generally much more robust and may last longer.
In addition, 1680 Denier horses often use Teflon coating to improve the distribution of moisture and help prevent stains on the horse blanket. Waterproofness and breatheability are the same between 600/1200/1680 denier, they will all use the same type of watertight and breathe. Many people like 600 denier because they are slightly light than 1200 or 1680 denier.
Likewise, a 1680D will weigh about 0.2 kg more than a 1200 denier. There are so many options in the horse blanket denier market. Which denier is the best? Sadly, in order to reduce the price, many operators have reduced the GSM density of denier substances - mainly with a thin tissue but with the same denier evaluation.
A 1200 denier would have a traditional cloth basis of 370 g/m². You have lowered the GSM to 300gsm (instead of 370gsm in a 1200 denier). Consumers think the material looks the same, but its firmness and shelf life are diminished as it is 20% slimmer.

Country-pride blankets come in a wide range of different outer covers, but you may be surprised..... Is that Denier? Perhaps you have heard the term Denier when looking at your horse's blankets in cold weather. The denier is the fibre width of the single yarns from which the woven material is made. If the denier is higher - the material is thicker, which allows a greater strength.
To those of us who like to know numbers - 1 denier corresponds to a 9000 metre long fibre bundle and had a diametre of about ten micrometres. - this course is hard! 1680 Denier is one of the highest weave types you can get in a crossover. It' a 2x2 basket weave that is wear, stab and tensile proof (not that there are no animals out there that still managed to break it!
The 1680D points have a Dupont PTFE finish to keep your horse hot andry. 1200 Denier is a densely weaved material, but does not have the wickerwork of the 1680D. It is still wear and break-proof. The Dupont Telfon outside coat ensures a hot, dehydrated horse. Do you have a horse that remains inside in cold weather and puts a strain on the blanket?
These blankets are supposed to help! Long-lasting and tear-resistant. Tight ly weave - fibres are interwoven into the cloth in a diamondshape. Watertight, but not watertight and not designed for the switch. Ideal for stables. 1200D Polypropylen is a thicker and better for a horse that is a little harsh on his clothes.
The polypropylene is waterproof, but not water-repellent. This blanket is not for the crossover. - these turnouts are half as heavy as the 1200D. You can resist some horse play, but can't last quite as long as the points above if you have a very wild horse or a horse playing with others.
Teflon impregnated with Depont Teflon, ideal for stables that remain inside in cold weather and need an additional film. A lot of sturdy blankets are made of 420 denier stock. The ceilings are not waterproof and are not designed for the crossover. It is long-lasting for the horse that stays in the shed.
