My chunky throw blanket has one of the softest textures I’ve ever felt on a blanket. Its thick weave makes it perfect for laying on the floor, and its breathable mesh keeps your bottom cool. In many ways, it’s even more comfortable than a cushion for sitting on the floor.
I was a little worried when I first saw these because I wasn’t sure I would be able to find one that matched the color theme of the room I wanted them for, but I was surprised to see they come in the perfect shade of light blue that I wanted for my studio. One of the best things about these throws is that they’re available in a wide assortment of colors including pastel pink and blue, neutral beige, cream and light gray, a vibrant wine and red in addition to black, navy, granite and white. These throws can complete your theme and add the touch of color that you need to make your décor sing and stand out. The over-sized wool strands create a truly unique visual appeal without being too busy that my friends always seem to ask me about whenever they see my throw for the first time.
These hand-knit throws are incredibly versatile. My large throw is dense enough to fold it into a cube and place a small TV tray on top and use it as small end table during the warmer seasons. The classic weave has a streamlined look that still holds visual interest. The rib and basket knit throws have a little more visual complexity and that extra added wow factor that comes from a more sophisticated design!

The wool construction of these throws makes them sturdy and easy to clean yet soft and full of warmth! When my whole family, including our playful pups, gathered around the tree last holiday season to shower each other with gifts and love, I couldn’t help but notice how comfortable and cute they looked on my lovely, chunky hand-knit throw. It was nice to know the dogs had a comfy spot to lay on without scratching the floor or getting the furniture dirty. My large throw transformed the floor in front of our fireplace into our favorite place to lounge during the winter months.
