Happiness Is a Warm Blanket: 10 Woolly Throws for Winter

Alexa Hotz December 24, 2014

We’ve covered wool camp blankets, heavy bed blankets, summer cotton blankets, and military blankets. Yes, we like blankets, but we have yet to fully explore one of the most inviting categories: chunky knit and textural woven throws. Here are 10 that you can really cocoon in on a cold day. And don’t forget: A blanket, a good book, and a cup of tea are the equation for happiness.

Above: From New Zealand–based designer Amy Tenant of Milo and Mitzy, Chunky Knit Throws made of local wool in natural fawn (shown), black, and navy blue. The throws measure about 40 by 60 inches and are $480 NZD ($371.36 USD); they ship anywhere directly from Milo and Mitzy.

Above: The 32-by-42-inch Cashmere Blanket from Nepal is $275 from Makie.

Above: The natural-colored cashmere-and-silk-weave Harare Blanket measures 220 by 260 cm and is £750 ($1,170) from Rose Uniacke.

Above: The Sabana Throw is made in Colombia of 100 percent virgin wool; $279 from Someware in Los Angeles.

Above: The thick mohair Lena Rewell Blanket in stone is $1,150 from Tiina the Store.

Above: The baby alpaca Heathered Knit Throw, made in Peru, is $198 from Serena & Lily. 

Above: Made in Peru, the 40-by-70-inch Eileen Fisher Baby Alpaca Knit Throw is $348 at Garnet Hill.

Above: Measuring 72 by 57 inches, the Mohair Blanket works well as a large sofa throw or an extra bed blanket. It’s made of brushed angora mohair (vegetable-dyed to a color called Barn Owl) at a mill in County Wicklow, Ireland; $170 from Design Within Reach.

Above: The Italian Wool & Alpaca Ribbed Knit Throw comes in five colors (four of which are shown here, plus one in garnet on special for $119); $169 at Restoration Hardware.
