Snuggling with a soft and cozy blanket is one of life's greatest pleasures. Whether you're binging your favorite show or cozying up with a book, the softest throw blankets will give you the utmost comfort and make you feel fuzzy inside and out.
When choosing a throw, it's important to decide what material feels best for you. Do you like an option that’s more plush and fuzzy? Or do you prefer something lightweight and moisture-wicking? While all the picks on my list are super soft, different materials will vary in texture and feel, so it helps if you know what you like.
You'll also want to think about other factors like whether the blanket is great for all seasons or hypoallergenic. Cotton is a great choice for those with sensitive skin and it won't trap heat on warmer nights. For those who want the texture of fur but have allergies, a pick made of microfiber is a great alternative that's ideal for all seasons. I've even included a faux fur option that's hypoallergenic below.
Another factor to think about is what kind of style fits best in your home. Designs can range from stripes to herringbone and even boho styles, like one of the picks I've included. While the standard size for throw blankets is 50 by 60 inches, there are some brands that offer oversized throws, as well, for extra coziness.
After researching products and scouring through tons of reviews, I've rounded up the best blankets on Amazon for you to choose from. Read on to find the perfect throw for your home.
