Over the years of using many brands of blankets on many an equine, here is the best solution I have found for shoulder rubs:  Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin.  It is a very soft, flannel like, fabric with an adhesive backing.  It comes in a 2-pack of padded or 3-pack non-padded.  I prefer the non-padded.  You can use scissors to cut it for certain areas.

A great solution for blanket rubs!

On a dry, clean, blanket it adheres very well and I have had it last throughout the season (not always).  It has even stuck to the blanket through a wash cycle.
