If you are in the market for one of the best cashmere blankets, you're doing something right. Cashmere is widely considered to be one of the softest and most luxurious fabrics in the world. It's also lighter than most wool fabrics, and yet can be up to eight times warmer than sheep's wool. But, because cashmere fibers are woven from the soft undercoat of goats usually raised in the high plateaus of Asia, it also tends to be pretty pricey to source and manufacture. So, if you're going to invest in a cashmere blanket it's helpful to keep a few things in mind.

When looking for a cashmere blanket online, you won't be able to feel the weight or texture of the blanket for yourself. But, the very best cashmere blankets are made of high-quality fibers and have plenty of fans who write reviews letting you know the weight and feel of a blanket. That's a great place to start if you're unsure of what you want. (I've got you covered here.)

While you may think a 100% cashmere blanket is the way to go, first decide how you want the blanket to feel. A blanket woven with a cashmere and Merino wool blend will be a little heavier and still feel just as soft. Also, consider if you want a throw blanket for your couch or a full-sized blanket for your bed. (Pro-tip: Here's a great guide to what size blanket is right for you.)

Without further ado, here are the best cashmere blankets you can buy.


The Best Cashmere Blanket

Also available on, $114 (60 x 50 inches)

  • Dimensions: 50 x 60 inches
  • Available colors: 5

Made from 100% Mongolian cashmere, this luxe blanket is soft, comfortable, and a great middle-of-the-road price when it comes to cashmere. The fabric is woven with long-staple fibers, which makes it a bit more durable and less prone to pilling. It comes in classic colors like camel and navy, and the long fringe adds some timeless style.

According to one reviewer: "I have owned this for about 4 months. It has been used as a lap robe at my desk and to date is very satisfactory. The fabric is lovely to feel and very warm for the weight. It is a good size for covering legs and lap but too short for use as a throw for a nap.”


The Best Extra-Long Blanket

  • Dimensions: 54 x 108 inches
  • Available colors: 1

This cashmere blanket is the longest overall blanket on this list, making it great for anyone tall, or if you're looking for a bed-sized blanket as opposed to a throw. Designed in a herringbone pattern with an unfinished hem, it comes in an understated neutral gray that will blend in seamlessly with any decor. It's hand-woven in Nepal with a blend of 70% cashmere and 30% lamb’s wool. Keep in mind reviewers have noted this one is prone to some pilling, so it’s best to keep a cashmere comb on hand to restore its texture.

According to one reviewer: "Bought this as an extra cozy for my wife. She prefers to sleep warmer than I and was not sleeping well for my comfort alone. This throw being lightweight cashmere added to her side of the bed fixed the problem wonderfully. I' m comfortable and she is toasty warm.”


The Splurge

  • Dimensions: 60 x 50 inches

Okay, I know. Spending nearly $300 on a throw blanket seems like... a lot. But this luxury throw blanket made from 100% cashmere is well worth the money. Made with two-ply, long-staple cashmere yarn, this pick is durable and resists pilling, so it’ll stay in great condition even with years of use. Plus, the reversible two-tone blanket is beige on one side and gray on the other, giving it a unique design touch no other blanket on this list can claim.

According to one reviewer: "This beautiful blanket arrived early, which was great since the weather has been unusually cold. Beautiful dark brown color, no itch. A perfect throw. Highly recommend. Expensive but worth it! [...]”


More Color Options

  • Dimensions: 52 x 72 inches
  • Available colors: 5

If you're looking for different color options, this 100% cashmere blanket comes in five different neutral and bright colors. It's also made with grade-A cashmere fibers, a grade only given to the thinnest and longest fibers. (For background, longer fibers make the weave more durable, and thinner fibers make the blanket feel softer.) The blanket measures 72 inches in length with a 4-inch fringe on either end. And, like others on this list, its four-ply cashmere fibers will give this blanket the perfect amount of weight so that you feel wrapped in warmth and luxury.

According to one reviewer: "Even softer than expected, the usual thickness for cashmere, just the thing for winter evenings! The burgundy is a very rich color.”


The Best Cashmere Blend

Also available at Kmart, $258

  • Dimensions: 50 x 72 inches
  • Available colors: 7

While this blanket isn't technically 100% cashmere, that's part of what makes it so great. Made from a blend of 75% cashmere and 25% Merino wool, it's a bit heavier-weight than others on this list and weighs 470 grams. The fringe is 4 inches long, and this blanket comes in seven different colors, ranging from brighter tones to cooler neutrals. But what reviewers especially love is the customer service they've received from this brand. That's just one reason this blanket has earned an impressive, 4.5-star overall rating on Amazon.

According to one reviewer: "I was hoping that 25% merino wool / 75% cashmere would make the blanket a little more substantial and thicker than 100% cashmere blanket. The blanket is pretty lightweight - about comparable to a winter cashmere scarf - but is still borderline acceptable as a throw blanket. I think the real plus, though, is that the blanket is just as soft as if it were made of 100% cashmere. I don't think the consumer would feel that they were making any concessions on that point. [...]”


The Best Travel Wrap

  • Dimensions: 80 x 30 inches
  • Available colors: 1

A cashmere travel wrap is a great option if you want to be able to transition from wearing it as a scarf to using it as a blanket. This one boasts a 4.3-star overall rating and is extra-long at a full 80 inches, making it perfect for covering up on long plane trips. It comes with a cotton dust bag that you can use to protect the fabric and store the wrap after your flight.

According to one reviewer: "Warm and cozy, perfect for travel, generously sized but folds up small for storage or ease of transportation.”


Another Great Cashmere Blend

Also available at Walmart, $365

  • Dimensions: 71 x 54 inches
  • Available colors and styles: 6

This luxury blanket is made with a blend of 5% cashmere and 95% Merino wool, but don’t let that low cashmere percentage deter you — it doesn’t sacrifice on softness or feel, and it’s earned a near-perfect 4.9-star overall rating. The blanket comes in several herringbone and checkered patterns — the navy and gold fringe option pictured here would look elegant in any study. Made in Ireland by a company that’s been around since 1893, you can rest assured this brand has stood the test of time.

According to one reviewer: “This blanket is so light weight, soft, and just perfect. I have had mine for 3 years now and my go-to blanket on the couch. Love it!”


The Best Baby Blanket

  • Dimensions: 30 x 40 inches
  • Available colors: 3

This smaller cashmere blanket is the perfect size for babies or pets. (Hey, your dependents deserve the best as well!) Made from 100% cashmere, this baby blanket is soft and super durable, with a cable-knit design that gives a timeless look — perfect if you’re looking for an heirloom piece to gift. It’s available in three colors: pink (shown here), cream, and blue.

According to one reviewer: "Very soft, just the right size for a car blanket on the baby. Super warm!


The Best Plaid Blanket

  • Dimensions: 70 x 50 inches
  • Available colors: 2

If you’re looking to go beyond solids, this plaid cashmere throw blanket is a classic choice that comes in two colors: eggshell and marigold and tan, black, and brown. Made from sustainable 100% Mongolian cashmere, it’s knit with two-ply, long-staple yarns for extra density and durability, and has fringe for a decorative touch.

According to one reviewer: “This blanket is beautiful. It is very soft and warm. It was a good value.”
