Stay out of the cold this winter, and settle in a warm-and-cozy throw blanket that will make you enjoy even the coldest of days. Whether you are wrapping yourself up in front of the fire, snuggling on the couch, or welcoming friends into your guest room, throw blankets make the winter days a little more bearable (and pretty!).

Nothing beats the classic style of a solid wool blanket with a contrasting whipstitch. Unless, it is also made in the USA and recycled. This affordable gray wool blanket from Faribault Woolen Mill is available with 6 color versions for the whipstitch.

Modern Graphic Pattern

A plaid or a solid blanket is always a classic choice, but this modern graphic print brings color and pattern to a drab winter day. This jacquard throw from West Elm is the perfect size to wrap up in and the fringe detail adds a little bit more style. You can also have this throw blanket monogrammed to personalize for yourself or as a gift.

Plaid and Oversized

If you want to do more than wrap a throw blanket around your shoulders, this plaid oversize throw from Ballard Designs is perfect to snuggle under. The warm colors on a cream background bring warmth to the room as well with the texture and pattern. The woven acrylic is soft and shows the pattern on both sides.

Perfect at the Edge of the Bed

This very large throw blanket is perfect to add to the foot of your bed. Available in six colors, it is washable and adds a quick update to a room with its bold pattern. Your guests will feel welcome all winter long with this throw blanket added to your guest room.

Classic Buffalo Check

If you are in the market for a throw that you want to keep for years to come, you may be willing to splurge a bit more -- and if you're going to splurge, you may as well go for one of the best and made in the USA. This Faribault buffalo check throw is available in three colors including the iconic red-and-black check. It is surely to be a timeless style that will last for years.
