High-Low Temperature Blanket Organizer!
Temperature blankets are a simple concept but produce many varieties. We are introducing one of our favorites “High-Low Temperature Blanket” which produces a stunning effect. The High-Low blanket works in squares where the center of the square is the color of the lowest recorded temperature of the day and the outside of the square become the highest recorded temperature. This leads to a smoother transition of colors and the variety adds design interest that blooms over the course of the year.
These designs become especially interesting for areas that experience large temperature swings. Mary Maxim’s corporate headquarters is located in Michigan where it isn’t unusual to begin the day in the 40’s and experiencing 80 or 90-degree temperatures by mid-day. These color variances will make your temperature blanket more representative of the actual temperatures and stylistically more interesting
