  • Learn More About Blankets & Throws

    Blankets and throws provide style and comfort to any home, whether used to curl up for a nap or casually draped across the arm of your couch as a dash of decor. A blanket serves its purpose in many rooms of the house—curl up on the sofa with a fluffy sherpa blanket, or add a pop of color to your kiddo’s bedroom with a vibrant afghan throw. Shop for the sweetest baby blankets to swaddle your child like an adorable baby burrito. Not just for indoors, blankets are essential for camping on chilly evenings spent roasting marshmallows on the fire, or for having handy on the patio so you can comfortably socialize with your friends well into the night.

    There are many types of blankets designed for tots, kids, and grownups, ranging from featherweight cotton throws to thick wool blankets for snuggling.

    Throws: Made in a variety of materials, a throw is a lighter kind of blanket usually tossed artistically on top of the bedspread or laid on the back or arm of the couch as an accent piece. Their decorative nature enhances your interior design while also providing an extra layer of warmth if needed.

    Knit blankets: From chunky knit blankets to crochet blankets to afghans stitched together from colorful crocheted squares, these handmade blankets add a cozy touch to any home.

    Quilts: A quilt is made using a sewing technique of joining multiple layers of fabric together, often in an intricate patchwork. A dohar is the Indian version of a quilt and is generally lighter in weight for warmer weather. Etsy is one of the best places to find both handmade and vintage quilts in every color imaginable.

    Sherpa blankets: Sherpa blankets are a plush version of fleece blankets that are incredibly soft and fluffy. They make great cuddle companions for little ones and couch potatoes alike.

    Photo blankets: A personalized blanket makes a unique and cozy gift for your lucky recipient. Some Etsy sellers can even make a customized blanket with your own photos, whether you’re commemorating an anniversary or roasting dear ol’ Dad with a collection of pics from his ‘70s glory days. Make a collage of multiple images or enlarge one special picture for a custom photo blanket they will treasure.

    Cooling blankets: For those who tend to heat up in their sleep, a cooling blanket might be your solution to a restful night in snooze town. Designed to quickly absorb body heat and made with lightweight fabric—they’re the coolest bedding around.

    Weighted blankets: A weighted blanket is like that friend who gives the best hugs. Created in sizes for both adults and kids, weighted blankets are designed to provide consistent pressure on the body for an effect many people find relaxing and calming.

    Electric blankets: An electric blanket is great for warming up on winter evenings or for thawing your frozen toes after a day on the ski slopes. With the use of electricity, they heat up quickly, but they typically aren’t recommended for overnight use.
