Cuddle up in one of the best throw blankets and make 2021 cozier. Read on to find our best-of list for the humble throw.
Hands off, which one is the best? We choose this faux fur throw.
The humble throw deserves more attention than it gets. It’s not just a blanket you cuddle up on the couch to keep yourself warm and cozy. The right choice of a beautiful throw makes a decor accent that every living room or bed-scape needs. That’s why they make great gifts too for any occasion.
While it’s true that blankets made of natural materials provide a ton of value (and it’s a good place to splurge), there are many benefits in high-quality polyester microfiber trows (especially if it’s the decor accent you’re after). If you’re after function, you may as well consider an electric heated blanket.
So this list is made of our favorite throw blankets that we love. We have included shopping links where to find them. We earn a commission from this by providing you with convenience at no extra cost.

This light gray throw blanket is made from the fiber with tight knitted loops that make it softer and warmer. Chenille fiber does not scratch or feel uncomfortable like wool yarns do. This large blanket is long in length for your feet to feel plenty of warmth during winter months and has a bulky knit pattern that makes it stand out among my other
- Made of Chenille yarn.
- Machine-washable (on gentle cycle).
We consider polyester microfiber to be the best material for a throw blanket. Yes, natural materials like cotton or wool have their pros, but something as practical as a throw should be more durable and machine-washable — features that microfiber provides. And it’s still very soft to the touch.
Choosing a throw blanket depends on how you’re going to use it. If you prefer function over decor value — choose a warm sherpa fleece blanket in a solid color. If it’s going to sit thrown over a couch more often, choose a lighter blanket in a nice pattern and accent color.
The difference between a throw and a blanket is merely the size. A throw is 50”x60” or smaller. And oversize throw is 60”x70”. Anything larger is a blanket.
