10 Best Throw Blankets to Keep You Warm + Snuggly in Winter

It's cold at the NOMAD Home Co. world HQ this week so we have layers of snuggly throw blankets on the brain. Today we've done a little roundup of our 10 favorite blankets to keep you warm and toasty this winter--whether you live in a frigid climate or a warmer one. (Full disclosure: I am covered in not one, but TWO, blankets as I type this. Can't. Get. Warm.) Also, I obviously have a hardcore thing for striped blankets. So sue me.

For the Polar Vortex 1/3 of the U.S.

The name of the game for big time warmth is wool, or fleece/sherpa type fabrics. I am partial to wool, because I prefer natural fibers. However, the waffle weave throw by Pottery Barn is a coveted treasure in our home.

1) Pendleton Glacier National Park Blanket - tip, get the Twin size to use it as a throw

For the West Coast + Deep South Folks

Ok, yes, so it doesn't get mind-numbing and toe-freezing cold everywhere. So, for the West Coast and/or Equator-based folks, or anyone else who likes a lighter weight yet still cozy blanket, here are some lighter options.

A thinner cotton blanket or Turkish cotton blanket will keep the chill off without bring the sweat on. I own both of these first two for warmer season use and can vouch by them completely. 

6) Modern Stripe Turkish Cotton Fouta

 

7) 100% Cotton Vertical Stripe Throw
