It comes in two sizes, 51-by-63 inches or 60-by-80 inches, so you can upgrade to a twin-sized bedspread if prefer an oversized fit. The blanket is machine-washable and resistant to pilling.

If your style leans boho, this sherpa throw blanket with four-inch tassels will blend seamlessly with your existing decor. It comes in nine muted colors, although not all of them are trimmed with tassels. You can choose from a 50-by-60-inch or a 60-by-80-inch blanket, which sells for $6 more. It's made from a polyester sherpa fabric and is lightweight, yet warm. It's machine-washable, non-shedding and super soft, making it a comfy addition to your bed or couch.

3. Kaffrey Luxury Chenille Chunky Knit Blanket

Chunky, hand-knit blankets are an Instagram staple, but most of them shed like crazy. This version is made from chenille, which is less likely to latch onto your clothes. It comes in eight eye-catching colors and measures 50-by-60 inches. The knit blanket can be washed on a gentle cycle in the washing machine but must be air-dried. While the blankets are manufactured in China, the small business that sells them is based in North Carolina and all customer service inquiries are handled by the U.S. team.

4. Decorative Extra Soft Faux Fur Throw Blanket

$19.99 at Amazon

Lightweight but still warm, this faux fur blanket folds up easily and could be used in the car, at outdoor events or overnight stays. It comes in seven trendy colors and three sizes: Throw (50-by-60 inches), Twin (70-by-78 inches) and Queen (78-by-90 inches). The faux fur side is made of 100% polyester microfiber, while the back side is lined with velvety soft fleece. It's machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, but should be air-dried or tumble-dried on the lowest heat setting. Some purchasers have used the fluffy throw as a Christmas tree skirt or a backdrop for a newborn baby photoshoot.

5. LOMAO Flannel Blanket with Pompom Fringe

$17.99 at Amazon

Sharing throw blankets with your pets necessitates multiple trips through the wash each month. This 100% polyester microfiber blanket holds up to regular laundering, although it should be washed separately in cold water on a gentle cycle and tumble dried on low heat to extend its life. It's wrinkle- and fade-resistant and won't shed all over your bed or clothes. The pompom-trimmed blanket comes in 19 saturated colors, including mustard yellow, emerald green and burnt orange. There are four sizes to choose from, ranging from 40-by-50 inches to 90-by-90 inches. The front side of the blanket is smooth and soft, while the back side is warm and fuzzy. If your dog or cat is a blanket thief, you might want to buy two just to be safe.

The Pendleton Motor Robe comes with a stylish leather carrier, allowing you to tote it around to your next picnic or outdoor movie screening.
