One of my dogs, Abby, tends to "chew" on blankets, too. It's a self soothing activity to her, as she does it in the evening, usually, or at night, when we are settling down and having quiet time.

We give her her own blankets. We just buy some inexpensive fleece blankets (her favorite), so she can cuddle up with one whenever she wants to. We usually cut and hem the blankets into smaller pieces, as she's a small dog and doesn't need a full size one. Actually, we started giving our dogs blankets because they are "diggers" too, a mini dachshund and dachshund-chihuahua mix. They are known for digging underground to go after badgers and other rodents, so digging is a favorite activity, and they like to dig and nest around in comfy blankets in the evening.
So, we put blankets in their favorite spots and let them chew and dig away. They never actually eat them, or even bite pieces off, they just chew on it.
