The Best Throw Blankets on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

By

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about other things to make your house feel cozy — like scented candles, down comforters, and space heaters — we’ve gone deep here on the best throw blankets you can find on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best throw blanket, overall

4.4 stars, 2,416 reviews

“I LOVE this blanket! My teenage son said, ‘It feels like heaven!’ It is so incredibly soft! And I am amazed at the reasonable price. I purchased two in the ivory color, and it is, in my opinion, better to have a little larger size than your traditional throw. It is perfect for cuddling and watching a movie! I sincerely love them so much that I have since ordered 14 blankets in various colors for all of my family! Everyone loves them as well, and they all said they can’t believe how soft they are. The jewel colors are beautiful, too!”

Best fleece throw blanket

4.2 stars, 407 reviews

“This is a great replacement for my old Snuggie. I wanted a throw that would be as large as the Snuggie, and this one is. It’s soft and warm and a beautiful blue color. It’s also large enough for me to wrap around my feet and still pull it up over my shoulders when I’m watching TV. I don’t know how durable it will be, but I did follow the directions and washed it before I used it. It came out of the dryer (on low heat) looking just like it did when I put it in. I love it, and I hope it will last as long as my old Snuggie did.”

Best plush throw blanket

4.4 stars, 2,007 reviews

“I bought this to go on my bed under a quilt for the winter season — but it never made it that far. EVERYONE in my house has either been using it on the couch, or I keep finding it in their rooms. It’s definitely a family favorite! So here I am again to buy a second one, and I’ll be back soon to buy more for other family members for Christmas! I bought the burgundy color and haven’t had any problems with pills or with it filling any lint traps in the washer or dryer. It is amazingly soft, and I would recommend it to everyone and anyone looking for a new blanket for any reason!!”

Best knit throw blanket

4.4 stars, 790 reviews

“I so love this throw!!! I am very impressed with the quality of this product, and the price is perfect!! It’s so, so soft and warm. I even use it on summer nights while running the central air-conditioning. This throw will definitely be my BFF this fall and winter while watching my favorite shows or catching some free time in my living room while reading!! I will be ordering a few more for the bedrooms!! You will not be disappointed!!”

Best fuzzy throw blanket

4.7 stars, 1,637 reviews

“This blanket. I don’t have words for the love that is this blanket. I thought about writing a love poem to it, but that seemed a bit much. But it needs a warning. You will buy one. You will love it. You will discover it is the softest, warmest, coziest blanket that has ever been made. In the history of blankets, there’s never been a better one. Not if cozy and soft are your goals, anyway.

You will feel like you’re sleeping in Santa’s bed with this thing. It belongs in the North Pole. It makes me believe in Santa and the magic of Christmas, because really there is no other possible explanation for anything so cozy and soft and perfect. I want a red one. And a purple one. This blanket needs you. You need this blanket. It’s perfect. It will be one of the best relationships of your life.”

Best faux-fur throw blanket

4.8 stars, 874 reviews

“This is a very serious throw!! I ordered the large size, which is heavy and not for use by wimps. I picture it used as a lap robe by the Russian czar as he sped across the snow in his open sleigh. The faux fur is long and luxurious-feeling, and the backing is heavy enough to qualify as a warm throw itself. Once I received my order, I was so impressed that I ordered two more as Christmas gifts for friends. Huge selection of colors, patterns, and fur types. Check it out for sure!!”

Best cotton throw blanket

4 stars, 346 reviews

“This blanket is the perfect fabric; it brings you warmth while being light and cool. It’s also very soft and feels nice on your skin; it’s not scratchy nor hairy nor fuzzy. It’s the perfect thickness where it’s functional to snuggle with without being completely smothered by it. It’s the perfect size and length (my feet never stick out of the bottom of it, nor do I have to constantly pick it up off the ground). And it’s so stylish! I love the colors of it, and they added just enough fringe where it doesn’t look tacky or take away from the blanket itself. Truly an amazing find! Worth every single penny!”

Best machine-washable throw blanket

4.5 stars, 202 reviews

“I love this blanket. It’s well-made and washed up nicely on the cold cycle. I dried it on fluff because it is all-cotton. It maintained its shape. I have the light-blue color and it’s beautiful. It reminds me of a sweater my mother used to wear. It’s soft and cozy and perfect for nap time.”

Best electric throw blanket

4.1 stars, 822 reviews

“I have been using electric blankets for years, and I love them. I hate to be cold when I am home. This blanket is delicious! It is warm and cozy and feels really nice, even if you’re not using the heat in it. It is perfect for when you’re sitting on the couch watching TV and just need a little something on you. My dogs also love this blanket. They also like to be warm. As soon as they see me put this on, all three will come running. I would highly recommend this.”
