Nothing creates a warm, cozy, and relaxing vibe like a throw blanket. These blankets are typically smaller and perfect for draping over your bed, sofa, or wrapping up with in your favorite reading chair.
Before picking which throw you will ultimately decide to drape yourself in for winter during those great Netflix marathons or when you just want to relax on the couch by the fire, try to figure out which type of fabric you want. The most common fabric types or blanket materials are:
- Faux fur
The next thing to consider is the style. Do you want a blanket with elaborate patterns or something classic and simple like waffle or cable? Do you want bright colors to really liven up a room or do you want cooler and softer colors to suffuse your space with relaxing vibes?
Whatever you end up deciding, here are the top rated and most popular throw blankets.
