It doesn’t get much warmer than this throw blanket, which is reversible and features a Sherpa on both sides. It’s lightweight and cozy and you can choose among 14 shades and two sizes (throw and twin). Toss it in the washing machine when necessary and don’t worry about it shrinking — the microfiber retains its shape and was designed to prevent such calamities.

How We tested

We bought five top-rated blankets and our reviewers tested them for 144 hours. We asked our testers to consider the most important features when using these blankets, from their style to their material and weight. We’ve selected one out of those as the best blanket you should buy this winter season.

What to Look for in a Blanket


Blankets can be made from a variety of materials, including fleece, wool, cotton, polyester, faux fur, and more. Each has different benefits: Fleece and wool are known for being warm, while cotton is great at regulating temperature and is also easy to wash. Consider how warm you want your blanket to be — as well as its care instructions — when choosing a material.


Another key indicator of a blanket’s performance is its weight, which is typically measured in grams per square meter (or GSM). Blankets with a higher GSM will be heavier and warmer — for winter use, you’ll want a blanket with 300 GSM or more.


Of course, you’ll also want to think about the style of the blanket you buy. There are many to choose from — from patterned blankets to knitted ones — but the best option for you will depend on your individual style and existing decor.
