1 Sherpa Ultra Soft and Cozy Fleece Blanket
Pendleton

"I am obsessed with this one from Pendleton. It’s the kind of super-soft fleece that feels so incredibly good on the skin. Also, it’s massive—it can function as a bed cover—which is ideal since everyone in my family is always trying to grab a corner of it for themselves."

- Jo Saltz, Editorial Director

2 Oversized Rib Knit Throw
Parachute Home

"Like your biggest, coziest sweater—except this one goes all the way over your toes. I love a woven throw for snuggling."

- Amanda Sims, Executive Editor

3 Stargazer Knit Throw Blanket
Urban Outfitters

"This is my favorite throw blanket of all time—it feels like a warm hug! It's incredibly soft and it has just enough stretch that you can pull it over your feet without needing to move."

- Nathalie Kirby, Senior Editor of Content Strategy

4 Solid Cashmere Throw 50" X 65" Dark Taupe

"It’s cashmere—what else can I say besides worth every penny? Favorite sweater material. Favorite blanket material."

- Carisha Swanson, Director of Special Projects

5 Resort Pique Blanket
frontgate

"This is blanket definitely stands out in a sea of faux fur. The buttery feel of the long-staple Egyptian cotton is the perfect layer of luxury. It's cozy for every season and is friendly to hot sleepers."

- Medgina Saint-Elien, Associate Shopping Editor

6 Faux Fur Brushed Tip Blanket

"This blanket has all the drama. I love how the faux fur enhances the depth of the moody color. You can also get it the size of your bed!"

- Kelly Allen, Associate Shopping Editor

7 Supreme Softness Plush Blanket
Nestwell

"This one is INSANELY soft and big enough to wrap around your whole body on the couch"

- Hadley Keller, Digital Director

8 Rainforest Canopy Blanket

"Who says a throw blanket can't be both soft *and* funky? I love this option from Vera Bradley—and it's currently on sale for $45!"

- Mary Elizabeth Andriotis, Associate Editor

9 Faux Fur Alpaca Throws

"It's equal parts cozy and beautiful. It's super thick, so I use it every night during the winter. Thankfully, it's chic and doesn't look messy when I leave it out on the sofa every night."

- Alyssa Fiorentino, Director of Brand Strategy

10 Mohair Blanket Titanium

"Handwoven in Helsinki, these mohair throws are fluffier than any others I’ve come across. I’m a fan of fuller throws to really bring a sense of dimension into a room (this one is long enough for the end of my kind bed, but it would also be great over a sofa, too). Plus, it’s insanely soft and surprisingly light so I won’t have to put it away come summer."

- Hadley Mendelsohn, Senior Editor

11 Cozy Knit Throw Blanket
Threshold

"I love the texture of the edges of this blanket paired with the softness of the middle. Plus, it was a perfect neutral to go with the assault of color that is my apartment. It does shed a little but not enough to be mad about."

- Lindsey Ramsey, Director of Content Operations

12 Faux Fur Throw

"This blanket from HomeGoods lives in our guest room. Honestly, when I’m in a pickle I always know I can find a good blanket there. Guests love this one and I can just throw it in the wash and not have it dry cleaned after each visit."

- Carisha Swanson, Director of Special Projects

13 Li'l Marsh Plush Blanket
UnHide

"For the days that I need to bring a blanket to my desk, this light pick-me-up makes all the difference. It's machine washable for my far too common coffee spills and most importantly, doesn't have the clammy feeling like other faux fur blankets."
