If you’re anything like me, you look forward to snowy winter days all year long, just so you can snuggle up under a cozy throw blanket while working, reading, or binge-watching the latest Netflix “it” show. Well, that chilly time of the year has officially arrived, which means throw blanket season has, too.

When I pick out a new throw, I look for options that contain all three elements of what I like to call the throw blanket trifecta: a soft touch, a warm weave, and an attractive appearance — after all, most throws spend their lives in plain sight draped over the living room couch! Below, we’ve rounded up 8 of our favorite throws that check every box. All you need now is a crackling fireplace and a cup of hot chocolate.
