Seeking first-hand accounts of experiences with warm blankets. Choices (as I see it) are wool, fleece, or flannel.

This year, we bought a midweight down duvet (~48 oz, queen sized), planning to pair it with a warm blanket in the cold New England winter months. Anyone have strong recommendations or warnings-off for fleece, flannel, or wool? (I’m guessing that cotton isn’t going to be warm enough. )
Additional relevant details: We keep our thermostat around 62 at night, and I run cold. In previous years, we used two duvets, stacked, within the duvet cover. We do have an old (likely 45+ years) Hudson Bay Point wool blanket, which I haven’t tried yet. We’ll switch to a lightweight duvet in spring and summer, so no blanket needed for those months.
