What is a Throw Blanket

A throw blanket is an extremely popular bedding item often confused with a regular blanket used mostly in bedrooms. Yet, throws stand out for unmatched versatility and can be used almost anywhere in your household where you need some extra comfort, warmth or style. Thrown over the couch, armchair, chair or sofa, this blanket will ensure a homey feeling and coziness, cuddle you with warmth on a cold day and add texture, color or design trends to your interior. Commonly, throws are offered in varieties of colors, designs and styles to any taste. You can also choose between numerous distinctive patterns and prints including flowers, images, animals, stripes, plaids and even cartoon characters and toys to be suitable for any ages and fit any occasion. Throw blankets are designed to give your house a fresh and new decorative look as well as wrap you with a comforting warmth when it’s chilly outside.

What Features to Compare

Size

Along with style and comfort, it is essential to decide on the size of the throw blanket you need. The size varies and greatly depends on the blanket's intended use. Thus, to decorate your couch or bed or wrap yourself while watching TV or reading you might need a bigger throw, while a smaller size will fit children or come in handy for a den, parlor, alcove and even gazebo or terrace.

Material

The next thing to consider is a material your throw blanket is made of. Today manufacturers use the whole variety of materials and their combinations from synthetic fabrics for more affordable, lightweight and easy-to-store items to natural wools for extremely warm and luxurious models. Yet, it’s worth saying that all materials have its pros and cons. Thus, synthetic fabrics are hypoallergenic and easy to care. Meanwhile, they are less breathable as compared to natural materials. As for the wool, it efficiently retains heat being a real catch for a cold climate. However, wool can be scratchy causing discomfort to sensitive skin and is a little heavy for summer. 

Care 

Finally, pay attention to cleaning requirements indicated for different types of throw blankets. An appropriate care is essential to maintain an attractive look and prolong the service life your throw. Mind that some models are washable while others require only dry cleaning.

Snuggie SN172112

A Smart Solution for Unmatched Convenience

In this model, the brand name speaks volumes. A snuggle or so-called snuggie is a blanket that has long sleeves. It’s an extremely simple yet ingenious solution allowing the users to easily cover themselves from neck to feet while keeping the arms free to use. Fantastic! This great idea dawned on one of the American students almost 20 years ago. A sleeved blanket was invented by Gary Clegg in 1997. He was greatly irritated by the need to put out the hands from under the blanket to use a remote control or hold the book while reading. This is what brought him to this useful invention. Eventually, Snuggie became one of the manufacturers that managed to realize this clever idea. Snuggie sleeved blanket is made of soft yet durable polyester to ensure optimum comfort and efficiently retain warmth. With a size of 71x54 inches, it is super large and will perfectly fit any user irrespective of height and weight. Offered in a funny zebra pattern design, it will wrap you with a gentle warmth and comforting softness leaving your hands free to use a phone, laptop or remote and without restricting your movements. Snuggie sleeved blanket is an excellent solution both for indoor and outdoor use, whether you snuggle on the couch with a book, sit on the terrace with a cup of coffee or enjoy BBQ in your backyard chatting with friends.

Breathing fresh air is essential for our health and well-being. Air purifiers were designed to create and maintain an optimal microclimate in your household free from contaminants, allergens and viruses for you to breathe in pure air with a full chest.

Lavish Home Classic plaid

Time-proven Classics

What does winter mean for you? It is not only a season of cheerful Christmas holidays and lovely family get-togethers. For most of us, it stands for snowy cold weather and freezing nights. When it’s chilly outside the best thing to imagine is the wood nicely cracking in the fireplace and a cozy armchair or even rocker with a warm throw welcoming you to sit near the fire and enjoy a cup of hot drink. Lavish Home throw has the same traditional plaid pattern that appears on numerous pictures of eye-catching winter interiors and classic Christmas cards. The edges are decorated with beautiful tassels accentuating the throw look and adding an exquisite touch to your home. Along with its classy style, Lavish Home throw blanket ensures quality and comfort. Finely knitted of 100% acrylic fiber, it is light, soft and comfortable to the touch. Though it is not wool, acrylic makes for a smooth Cashmere-like texture, extremely easy care and long-lasting use. It won’t pill, shed or shrink after wash and will retain its bright coloring. Meanwhile, Lavish Home throw feels like a hug and is perfect for wrapping up on the couch on cold winter evenings, keeping in your car for days out or just as an attractive piece of home textiles that will enhance the look of any room and can make a perfect gift.

Those who give preference exceptionally to natural materials in their bedding items will not pass by wool blankets. Made of natural wool, such blanket will warm you up and bring a snuggling feel of comfort.
