In our 5-Star Buys series we spotlight popular Etsy items that recently struck a chord with shoppers—and let their rave reviews do the talking.

It's easy to love Calhoun & Co. for their quirky, conversation-starting knit throws (see: "Good at Naps" and the hot sauce blanket). But the New York-based brand doesn't only play for laughs. Exhibit A: This vaguely retro yet thoroughly modern cotton number, which blends Art Deco motifs with on-trend tropical florals (and also happens to be the ideal weight for transition-season temps). Take it from this happy customer:

"This is an absolutely gorgeous blanket! I have been searching for months for the perfect replacement for an old, well-loved/slightly tattered throw that I have had for years. It has been a real 'Goldilocks' process finding a blanket that was light enough that I could take a nap with a radiating sunburn, but warm enough that if I gave it to an impromptu guest they wouldn't wake up in the middle of the night freezing. Anyway, all that to say, this is it: great weight, soft but not in a fuzzy/furry way, nice size, shipping was extremely quick, and all of the designs are beautiful." — AT
