What is a Throw Blanket?

By Riley Seymour | Nov 30, 2023

A throw blanket is a home accessory that is approximately 50" x 60" in size. It is smaller and lighter weight than a quilt, duvet, or comforter, though it can be used on top of a bed for decoration to match the room's color scheme or theme. It is also often used in a living room for extra warmth, décor, or coziness on the couch.
