6 Things to Know Before Purchasing Throw Blankets

Posted in

Throw blankets are a vital cozier accessory for the home, winter or summer. You’re in luck if your home is missing these comfortable necessities! We have expanded our collection with several new throw blankets that we adore. The following three considerations should be made when searching for the ideal throw blanket to compliment your bedroom or residence.

  • Materials you want to use

Throws can be made of various fabrics, including cotton, wool, and fleece. Consider the season and your tastes while choosing your throw blanket.

Throws made of 100% cotton and linen are excellent choices for hot summer nights because they are lightweight and have a cooling feel to them. Choose wool blends for cooler weather because they will keep you warmer than other textures. Ultimately, while choosing throws, it’s best to go with your instincts and personal preferences.

  • The colors you need to employ

Any space may be instantly brightened and given texture with the addition of a throw blanket in a complimentary color. To make a big statement, add a throw blanket in a striking color contrasting with the decor’s other colors. Select one or two shades lighter or darker than the home’s decor. It will transform the throw into a lovely accent that gives room for vitality.

  • Consider the season

You may use throws all year long to brighten a space and keep you warm when temperatures drop in the evenings, even though they are more appropriate for the winter and fall when you want to curl up on the couch.

Just make sure you choose seasonal-appropriate materials and patterns:

Warm fleeces and knits in muted hues can keep you warm in the winter; light chenille in warm, vibrant hues can cheer up a gloomy fall day while still keeping you warm; acrylic and polyester in floral shades can liven up the space in the spring; and natural fibers like cotton in calming, cool shades are perfect for the summer.

  • Replace them

Keep the room appearing new by frequently moving the throws about, whether by season (as mentioned above), for the holidays, or just because it’s pleasant to mix things up now and then, regardless of the design, colors, and materials you choose.

  • Consider the throw’s size

Throws usually are 50 by 60 inches, making them more of a lap blanket than a bed blanket. It would be best to take note of the throw’s measurements before purchasing, advises Sole, as there is no set size. If you’re tall or prefer head-to-toe covering, you may need larger throws.

  • Pay attention to the care guidelines

Your throw will require regular washing unless it is merely decorative. How important is comfort (or discomfort) to you? When washed in cold water using a moderate cycle, materials made of cotton or polyester retain both their shape and color. (If you are concerned that the decorative items may damage your washing machine, think about hand washing.)

Because too much heat might cause synthetic fibers to melt, choose a low or no-heat tumble-drying setting. To prevent shrinkage or fiber damage, consider air-drying your throw if you have a drying rack or a banister. Blends of wool and polyester can also be washed. Because heat and water can shrink or damage the fibers in wool and cashmere, dry cleaning is recommended. When synthetics, primarily fleece, come out of the dryer, watch out for static. Finding a cozy blanket is excellent, but an easy-to-clean blanket is even better.

Here are some easy ways to make your throw last longer and keep it clean. Use a depiller tool to keep your fleece and flannel blankets looking their best because even the best is known to pill.

Tip: Place your throws in a basket adjacent to your couch or chair while not in use. Please keep them in an airtight container or bag in an excellent, dry location during the summer.

Final Thoughts! Have you got young kids or shedding animals? Choose a cotton or polyester throw that is simple to clean. Do you enjoy tailgating or live in a frigid climate? The best choice for optimum warmth is a fleece blanket. Do you want to give the back of your sofa some flair? Then, when you shop, consider color and design.
