Ice in blanket

When we take a blanket at room temperature and wrap it around ourselves, we become warmer than if we are not covered by the blanket.

When we take a blanket at room temperature and wrap it around an ice cube, would the ice melt faster or slower than if it was not covered by the blanket?

\(\)
Details and Assumptions:

  • Assume that the ice does not touch the blanket due to an air gap between the blanket and the ice.
  • The initial temperatures of the blanket and the room are the same.
