Question My Dog is eating his blanket at night!

Hello everyone!
I have had my Rhodesian Ridgeback for 1 year now. For the past two nights he has been eating pieces of his blanket and throwing them up in his crate. Other than this behavior, he seems to be acting completely normal, just sleeping a lot. This is the first time I've seen him exhibit this type of behavior. Does anyone have any ideas what may be ailing him? I am trying to figure out if its just behavioral because of anxiety, or if he may be sick with something.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys!

I would wash the blanket, & provide a different one while its being washed. My dog will chew through her blanky to get to a dog biscuit she wrapped in it previously, & if it smells like food still. It can be anxiety too though, you would be looking for things out of the usual routine as a trigger usually. like a new animal around, or shouting (sometimes things on t.v can cause upsets)
