A comfy throw blanket is an essential piece in creating a cozier living room. Seriously, wrap yourself up in any of these blankets, and you’ll never want to leave the couch. Instead, you’ll be looking for new TV series to binge and books to read.

However, there are a few key things to consider when buying a throw blanket. For one, it needs to be comfy — any blanket that feels itchy isn’t worth having. It should also be stylish because it’s likely to be draped over the back of your couch. You can use a throw blanket to add a pop of color to the room or tie together a color scheme. And it should be machine-washable. You’ll want to give it a good cleaning after a few regular uses or if you spill a drink or snacks on it.

All the blankets below check every box, so you can’t go wrong curling up with any of these.

Barefoot Dreams has gained attention as the Kardashians’ favorite blanket for traveling and more. But the hype is real: These blankets really are worth their higher price tag. Their microfiber material is soft, cuddly and stretchy.

Sherpa is plentiful on Pottery Barn’s website, but this blanket stands out for its cozy, ridged texture. Plus, you can’t beat the price, especially when compared to the other sherpa styles from the retailer.

3. UnHide Marshmallow Medium Blanket, $159.20 (Orig. $199)

UnHide’s vegan faux fur blanket is super fluffy, hence “marshmallow” in the name. On one side, the faux fur feels as soft as a chinchilla; on the other, it’s silky velvet. Additionally, it weighs 9.5 pounds to offer a slightly therapeutic weight. It’s not exactly a weighted blanket, but it’s heavy enough to help you feel more relaxed. (Another fun detail: Ellen DeGeneres is the founder of UnHide.)

4. Target Threshold Oversized Primalush Throw Blanket, $16.99

This oversized throw blanket is perfect for sharing but cheap enough to get a few for the whole crew. It’s extra plush and soft like faux fur, but it’s machine-washable if you accidentally spill on it. It comes in a variety of mostly neutral shades, but you could also go bold with a dark blue, pink or clay-colored blanket.

5. Sunday Citizen Woodland Throw, $170

Luxury alert! Sunday Citizen is known for its cozy Snug Comforter and other bedding. However, you can use its throw blankets anywhere around your house — and after feeling them, you may even want one in every room. The 100% microfiber Woodland Throw features a tropical design you’ll want to curl up with regularly.
