A wool throw blanket is a versatile decoration that’ll keep you warm during the colder months and add pizazz during the warmer months. Throw blankets can be used anywhere in the home to make it look cozier and more inviting. You could put a blanket over the arm of your couch, the back of a dining chair, the bottom of a bed, or even in a basket beside your favorite nap zone. The options are limited only by your imagination.

How to Pick a Wool Throw Blanket
So, you know you want a wool throw blanket, but which one? Unless your blanket budget is large, you probably need to narrow down your choices. With so many options to choose from, there’s a great fit for everyone if you know what you’re looking for.
For those who know exactly which blanket they’d like, you can skip this section and head to the checkout! But if you’d like a little help narrowing down which wool blanket would be best, keep reading to see our top tips.
Color and Pattern
The color and pattern you choose for your throw blanket will change how it looks in your space. For example, a red and black plaid wool throw blanket will look different than a solid pink, black, red, or beige wool throw blanket. And a striped wool throw blanket will look different than a chevron pattern.
Look around the room you're decorating to identify the main color palette and whether it would benefit from patterns to add visual interest. It'll be unique to your space, and there's no right answer. For example, if your living room is already home to several patterned textiles, a solid color blanket could add some variety, but a pattern would also fit in.
Material and Durability
Look up how to care for a wool blanket to make sure it’s the right fit for your home. Most households prefer a washable wool throw blanket to make cleaning easier, and you might want wool-specific detergent to preserve the fibers.
If the area where you’ll be using the blanket is exposed to moisture, soil, pet messes, or small children, you might want a wool blend or a different, more durable material. For example, if your throw blanket will protect a chair from dog hair, synthetic might be better than wool. But if you plan to cuddle with your blanket for movie night, wool is a perfect fit to stay warm and cozy.
Where you plan to display or store your wool throw blanket might impact how big you’d like it to be. The way you plan to use your blanket could also plan a role. Measure your favorite throw blanket, your furniture, or yourself to get a better idea of how big you’d like your blanket to be before you pick one.
