The three main types of photo blankets are woven photo blankets, knitted photo blankets, and dyed photo blankets. You can make woven photo blankets by using a digital software that scans a picture, create a pattern and then create a woven picture blanket using various colored yams. An afghan photo blanket and a tapestry photo blanket are the two varieties of a woven photo blanket. The difference between the Afghan photo blanket and the tapestry photo blanket is that the yam used in an Afghan photo blanket is the same width in both horizontal and vertical directions while a tapestry photo blanket is made with a yam of two different diameters.
A a machine that uses the same scanning and pattern process knits the yams together in a looping technique makes the knitted photo blanket. Many Knitted photo blankets consist of limited colors caused by the knitting process and the continuous thread forming loops in the process.
The the newest type of photo blanket is the dyed photo quilt which is made by printing dye onto fabric from a digital photo. This the type has the sharpest clarity and gives room for unlimited colors.
