This is usually because the cat was taken from/lost mom before weaned or was ready (some cats take longer to "let go" of needing mom than others) this is a comfort to her, kind of like a soother to babies. It's okay for her to be sucking on the blanket, try to get her a blanket that doesn't shed fluffy stuff - so she doesn't ingest too much of it.

Ditto what Badger says re the other issues
