How to Recognize Winter Throw Blankets
Winter Throw Blankets refer to any thick and plush feeling throw blanket that will help to keep you and your family warm throughout the winter months. Simply choose wool blend blankets to keep everyone warm, while faux fur, fleece, and Sherpa are all great options too. Thick winter throw blankets are perfect for using to style an armchair, sofa, or bed too!
Blanket Fun Facts:
The invention of blankets themselves is said to originate from the Egyptians. Wool was widely used, while flax, cotton, and fleece were also used to create some of the first blankets.
Wool blankets then became a sign of prosperity in the 1300’s, when a loom was granted permission to use wool to make bed coverings.
Wool is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and resistant to dust mites. This makes it a fantastic choice for any family home! They are also 100% biodegradable, so they can be returned to the soil at the end of their life.
