Throw blankets and cold weather are synonymous. Even if you have the heat cranked up, there’s something that feels so right about snuggling up in a warm throw blanket while sipping a steaming cup of tea. Even if you're working from home, a blanket is just what you need to fight the midday chills.
However, the perfect throw must meet a few standards. It needs to be cozy and soft, yet not too heavy or suffocating. Something that’s just right.
