Why is it better to use two thin blankets rather than using one thick blanket to protect us from cold?

Air is an excellent insulator. Blankets work by trapping layers of air both in themselves and between one another. A thick blanket cannot trap as much air inside it as two blankets can trap inside themselves and between each other. Two thinner blankets therefore have better insulation properties.
