1. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket

Best Overall

You may have seen this ultra-cozy throw before, and that’s because nearly every celebrity has one. (Chrissy Teigen has the chic leopard print version.) If you don’t own a Barefoot Dreams blanket yet, now is your chance to stock up, because it’s bound to sell out during the holiday rush. Measuring 54-inches x 72-inches, it’s big enough for two people to cozy up under and thanks to the super-buttery microfiber material, it’s bound to be the softest throw you’ve ever owned. In addition to the leopard print that Teigen has, the simple design also comes in nearly every goes-with-anything neutral, including cream, light grey, black, white and taupe.

2. UGG Bliss Sherpa Throw

Best Sherpa

It’s been decades, but we still can’t get rid of our UGG boots, because they’re just that cozy. Turns out the brand’s Sherpa throw blanket has the same comfort-factor. Fleece on one side and nubby Sherpa on the other, it makes every movie night feel like it’s taking place inside an UGG boot. We love this neutral gray hue, but it also comes in seven additional colors, from sand to rose and even a soft sage. The best part? Unlike our boots, this blanket is completely machine-washable, so you can keep it looking (and smelling) fresh all season long.

3. Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool Throw Blanket

Best Fall Aesthetic

This plaid wool throw blanket actually gives us something to look forward to when summer comes to a close. Though it comes in a whopping 30 colors (in twin, queen and king sizes), we’re partial to this vintage red plaid design. Which, FYI, is water and stain repellent; when you need to give it a little refresh, just throw it in the cold wash cycle and tumble dry on low. You’ll find us wrapped up in it, sitting by the fire, hot tea in hand all season long.

4. The Connecticut Home Company Luxury Faux-Fur with Sherpa Reversible Throw Blanket

Best Faux-Fur

This blanket isn’t just one of our personal faves, it’s also highly regarded by nearly 4,000 purchasers on Amazon. It features faux fur on one side and Sherpa on the other, making it quite toasty. And although it has the look and feel of fur, it’s machine washable in case of messes (i.e., when we inevitably spill ice cream down the front). It comes in a casual 41 shades, from this beige color to a bold merlot hue, and four different sizes (twin, full/queen, king and a 65-inch x 50-inch option). All that for just $25? We can feel a nap coming on already…

5. Brooklinen Throw Blanket

Best Wool

Brooklinen created this throw for ice-cold nights spent snuggling by the fire. Though we aren’t rushing those frigid days along, we wouldn’t mind being snowed in with this 51-inch x 70-inch eco-friendly wool throw wrapped around us. It’s made at a 100-year-old family mill in Germany and comes in eight muted hues that look chic draped over the couch arm when not in use. Think of it as functional décor.

Buy It ($229)


6. Coyuchi Sequoia Washable Organic Cotton Wool Blanket

Best Ethically Sourced

Not only does this throw keep things toasty warm thanks to its blend of organic cotton and organic wool, it's good for the climate too. The fabrics are produced using low processed fibers that are both natural and organic, and are crafted in ethical factories that are kind to the environment. Plus, it's buttery soft feel and the minimalistic design makes this a staple you'll continue to reach for whether it's summer or winter.

Ben Soleimani

7. Ben Soleimani Ribbed Cashmere Throw

Best Cashmere

If it was acceptable to live in this throw blanket, we would. Made from super-soft cashmere with raised ridged channels, it has an extra cozy texture that feels exactly like your favorite cashmere sweater. Choose from three neutral colors: sand, grey or charcoal—or just grab one of each. That’s how much you’ll love it.

Buy It ($548)


8. Bourina Throw Blanket Textured Solid Soft Sofa Throw

Best Fringed

A fringed throw is a great way to add some texture to your space. And while some throws look better than they feel, this blanket is not one of those. The diamond pattern design and fringe edge is super cute but is still silky soft and totally cuddle worthy. The brand uses a fast weaving style, meaning each blanket has a high knit density for peak warmth and comfort. And with over 20 color options, you are bound to find one that is the perfect fit for your living room.

$25; $20 at Amazon


9. Parachute Cashmere Baby Blanket

Best Baby Blanket

We usually want anything that’s made for an infant due to the comfort factor. The same goes for this cloud-like baby-sized cashmere throw, which comes in both dusty rose and grey. At just 38-inches x 32-inches, it fits easily in cribs, strollers and car seats lending a snug feel to any space, whether at home or on the go.

Buy It ($149)


10. Sferra Celine Throw

Best Lightweight

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a faux-fur throw to make a space feel like a winter wonderland. Take this 51-inch x 71-inch herringbone throw for example. It’s made of lightweight, breathable cotton that feels super soft to the touch, a great alternative to some of the thicker options in this list. If you live in a warmer climate, or just prefer your throws to be on the lighter side, this fringe number is our pick.

Buy It ($89)


11. Whale Flotilla Flannel Fleece Queen Size

Best Velvet

Name a more luxurious fabric than velvet. That’s what we thought. And this throw one-ups the luxe factor with a Gatsby-inspired, art deco pattern. Drape it at the foot of your bed for an extra pop of color or use it to add interest to a neutral living room. Our fave feature? The fact that it’s completely machine washable.

The Citizenry

12. The Citizenry Cascada Alpaca Throw

Best Alpaca

Hand-loomed by 40 master weavers in the Peruvian Andes Mountains, this alpaca throw is incredibly soft and warm, while still being lightweight. How, you ask? It all has to do with the different weaving technique in every stripe, that takes about one week to create from start to finish. Not to mention alpaca is a hypoallergenic material, so it’s the ideal choice for anyone with sensitive skin or allergies.

Buy It ($155)


13. Coyuchi Pismo Organic Blanket

Best Organic

Your groceries are organic, so shouldn’t your throw blankets be, too? Woven from organic cotton, this is a contemporary take on matelassé (a French weaving technique that creates a quilted pattern). The result? A light- to mid-weight blanket with a soft, delicate finish that’s ideal for year-round use.

Buy It ($248)


14. Bearaby Cotton Napper

Best Weighted

Unlike most weighted blankets that leave much to be desired in the aesthetics department, the Bearaby Cotton Napper is so chic, you’ll actually want to leave it on display. Made from thick woven cotton that gives the blanket its heft (rather than the glass or plastic beads), this one is also extremely breathable, so it won’t cause you to sweat profusely every time you want to reap its anti-anxiety benefits. It comes in 15-, 20- and 25-pound options and five soothing colors, so you can customize it to your space and liking. Just keep in mind that the best way to find a weighted blanket for you is to go for one that’s around 10 percent of your bodyweight.

Buy It ($249)


15. Beautyrest Fleece 2 Piece Electric Blanket

Best Heated Blanket

For those winter nights that are bone-chilling cold, a warming blanket is going to be a life saver. We love this guy for a lot of reasons. It's 100 percent fleece making it comfy to snuggle up in and it has a multi-heat control so you ensure the temp is at the ideal level for you. But most of all, it safe to use due to its function that automatically turns the heat off after two hours of use so you can sleep soundly—and warmly—all night long.

$99; $92 at Amazon


16. Elegear Cooling Blanket

Best Cooling Blanket

On the other end of the thermometer, if summer nights mean lying on top of your duvet, tossing and turning because it's too hot, a cooling blanket should be close by. This is specially made to help absorb your body's heat with a cool-sensing value of 0.4 (Psst, most cooling blankets have a value of 0.2) that works to take in any sweat so that you stay cool and dry all summer long.

$60; $50 at Amazon

17. Abound Chunky Knit Blanket Throw

Best Statement Making

Gigantic chunky knit blankets are all the rage. So if your Pinterest board is filled with artsy shots of these guys tossed over the arm of couches and chairs, you should probably add this option to your cart. We're loving that it's machine washable and the different color options are so cute you may want two for your space. Bonus points for it being hand-knit and carefully crafted so that it's durable enough to not shed or fall apart but will still probably be the comfiest throw blanket you own.

$100; $80 at Amazon
