UGG® Classic Sherpa Throw

UGG® Classic Sherpa Throw

If you are a fan of UGG (who isn’t?), you are going to want to check out the UGG® Classic Sherpa Blanket. It is a much-loved style that is, above all, cozy and warm. The beautiful, subtle colors it comes in fit in nicely with most decor. It has a classic sherpa texture on both sides of the blanket, which is kind of unusual in a sherpa throw (usually it is sherpa on one side and plush fleece on the other).

Since the fabric is 100% polyester, it is easy to wash and keep clean. It is a little bit bigger than your average throw at 70″ by 50″, so if you find standard sizing too small, this may be a good option for you. The blanket is very soft and is well made with UGG’s usual excellent quality. It is also quite cushy and warm and while still being lightweight and very soft to the touch.  They make fantastic gifts as well.

CozyChic™ Throw from Barefoot Dreams®

CozyChic™ Throw from Barefoot Dreams®Barefoot Dreams are known for the extreme softness of their sweaters and cardigans, so it isn’t a surprise that they put out some pretty insanely soft throws that are a favorite for a lot of people on a cold winter night.  Their much-buzzed-about CozyChic™ Throw is a 100% polyester microfiber fabric that’s extra soft and cozy.

Barefoot Dreams have perfected their Teasy-care material so it doesn’t shrink, pill or wrinkle. It is a pretty expensive option for a polyester blanket, but people love it so much that they don’t seem to mind the high price. The CozyChic is slightly larger than standard sizing at 54″ x 72″, so it is a good option if you are tall and find standard sizes to be too small or you are just looking for a bigger size.

The only thing to note with this style is that it sheds a little bit when washed, which gets people nervous about the quality, but after the first few washes, the shedding slows down. These blankets are an ideal weight for year-round use since they are heavy enough to keep you warm in various weather, but they are also breathable enough so you don’t overheat. If you can get them on sale, they make excellent gifts for almost anyone.

Brooklinen Throw Blanket

Brooklinen Throw BlanketAnother favorite luxury blanket that people love is the Brooklinen Throw. It is more of a traditional style that comes in either a super soft lambswool, pure wool, baby alpaca, or a cashmere and lambswool blend. They look super chic and beautiful, and best of all, they are luxuriously soft and cozy.

Another great thing about this style is that they aren’t overly thick and plush, but they still manage to be warm. If you don’t like the style of the plush fabric, they make a fantastic alternative. Most of Brooklinen’s designs come in neutral tones and have a fringe. They do have one style currently, which is a cashmere and lambswool blend with a seamed edge rather than the fringe.

They are medium weight and are 59″ by 83″, so they are slightly larger than average throws. If you are looking for a well-made, neutral-colored, extremely comfortable option, look no further than Brooklinen.

Celine Throw


Celine Throw

The Celine Throw from Sferra is another beautiful luxe option that is well worth a look. The Celine is a 100% cotton design that is made in Portugal. It is 51″ by 71″ and is available in understated, soft colors that feature a cream herringbone weave. It also has a decorative twisted fringe that is just the right length for the size of the blanket.

The cotton is quite a thick weave that is soft and slightly plush without being too heavy, which can sometimes be an issue with cotton blankets. This is an excellent choice for someone who is looking for quality, comfort, and beautiful colors.

Despite being lightweight, it will keep you warm, and since it is cotton, it is nice and breathable. You can use the Celine as a year-round style as the weight and thickness are neither too heavy nor too light. It is also machine washable, and you can tumble or air dry it to keep the tassels looking good.

Merino Lambswool is a fantastic fabric since it is able to regulate your body temperature by keeping you warm when you are cold or cool when you are overheating. The other thing you need to know about this design is that it is made in Italy, it is 56”  by 70″, and it is dry-clean only.  Depending on your taste, this could very well be the perfect throw for lounging stylishly on the sofa.
