What do you think?
I am developing a new site with a cleaner name.
Should I incorporate some kind of graphic? It's difficult to convey a blanket theme in a logo.
That's why I went for the clean name.

your logo has a nice and clear color mix. It is hard for everybody to represent a blanket shape in the logo, also a blakent shape may give a fault impression about your business as anybody who sees the logo may think that it is a carpet or just a geometrical shape in the design. In that case I advice you to think about something that is reflects or give you a relation to blankets. For example, you can use the feeling of the warmeness that is a result from using a blanket, you can show such feeling by using warm and smooth colors (eg. pink, light degrees of red). I hope that I made my openion clear.
Thanks and best regards

Maybe if I add the sun from a picture of winter that you know if you just see it, you will radiate with warmth.
Just thinking from a different sense
visual warm eg: sun vs. perceived feel warm fire
Just a left handed mindset observation.
I tried to redden and or pinken the background but it did not feel right. Man thing I guess.
Check it out!

The logo looks much better now, but didn't you think about using a more rounded edges font?

Your logo looks like a toothpaste box to me. The blankets on your site are somewhat elegant - while this logo looks 'nice' it certainly doesn't represent your product. I recommend a Serif typeface or a contemporary sans with more class. An integrated visual would do wonders for you. The sparkle feels out of place. There are hundreds of shades between tan, brown, red, orange that are much warmer and do not have to look chincy. Visit the following to see the colours I am getting at:

Totally agree Grease! Some nice colourings on that site. They would radiate a more elegant warmth than currently.
Also, you dont have to use the imagary of blankets to have an effective logo. For example a product made of wool can use a variety of brandings, the Woolmark (http://www.wool.com/) brand is one that is known internationally.

I did things a little different.
What do you think?
BTW Grease, I like your suggestions on the colors that convey warmth. I will try to integrate a color scheme with those ideas in mind.
