Default Hair on Blankets

I have most shedding under control but I was wondering what the best type of blanket is to not have a dog fur blanket. I usually use wool blankets now but I am getting a bit annoyed by the way the fur sticks to it and cannot be removed. What type of blanket is best to not collect shepherd hair, or at least a type that most of the hair will come off with washing? Any ideas?

I get comforters from walmart that are microfiber. They arent plush or fluffy on the outside, rather they are very smooth, and soft. SOOOO comfy....but I've noticed those are the easiest blankets to remove hair from. If you don't even want the dog hair to stick, then the only thing I know of is satin

I use fleece bankets and the hair comes off well in the washer.

geez, don't you know that the dog hair is just an extra layer of insulation?

Anything that is a smoother finish, that the hair can't weave itself into will be the easiest to keep clean. Wool or something similar would probably be hardest - the dog hair weaves into the fabric

Well.... By the time the rabbits finish climbing all over everything, there isn't much space left for the dog hair to stick. The blankets are already covered in "Hare" hair.

To be honest - we just gave up a LONG time ago. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

It is also Abby's way of always being close to me.

+1. The best blanket is one you simply don't care if there is hair on. Because it is inevitable!

We have this one -http://www.potterybarn.com/products/.../?pkey=cthrows It has been awesome! Our Golden Retriever and our GSD's fur just falls off of it. It doesn't get attached like it does to the fleece and other blankets that were given to us. The one I linked to is perfect. We may buy another one.

I bet a plastic blue tarp would work well, though it might be kind of loud to curl up in if you're trying to watch TV.
