This week, we scanned Amazon’s bestseller list for outstanding blankets and throws, then pulled the most useful and authoritative reviews for each.
Utopia Woven Cotton Blanket ($29)
“This blanket is just what I was looking for. It is soft in a natural-fiber way, not fluffy-soft or slick feeling. I was concerned it was going to be too big, but after washing and drying it fits perfect on my twin bed. I have washed and dried it twice and it has come through looking great.”
Cotton Craft Cotton Thermal Blanket ($34)
“Such a nice blanket! Just what I was looking for—a cotton thermal blanket for winter. It has a nice weight to it and the weave is good and solid, unlike other cotton thermals that had a looser weave with more holes for air pockets.”
Chanasya Shaggy Longfur Throw Blanket ($29)
“I was super excited to receive this throw. I had been looking for something like this but every throw I found was either rough or very plain. As soon as I took it out of the package my boyfriend and dog snuggled under it for hours. It is so comfortable that you will want to instantly nap. It looks beautiful as well when used as a throw.”
DII Rustic Farmhouse Cotton Chevron Blanket Throw ($26)
“I’m very happy with my purchase of this throw. It’s hard to find a throw that’s good quality for a decent price. This one definitely met all my expectations, and I’m very pleased with the knitted houndstooth design. Looks vintage, which fits in perfectly with my living room.”
PHF Waffle Weave Blanket ($36)
“I ordered this blanket in white and khaki. I love the feel and look of the waffle weave. The blanket is lightweight and springy, unlike traditional cotton weave blankets that feel heavy and dense. I gave the blanket 5 stars because of the quality of the material.”
