Cotton, Wool, & Other Throws

Keep it Cozy with a Cotton or Wool Throw

Draping a cotton or wool throw along the bottom of a bed, the back of a sofa or the arm of a chair is a great way to bring a pop of color and texture to the space while keeping the look of the space nice and cozy. With such a wide variety of throws available at Williams Sonoma, it is easy to find one that elevates the look of any room in the home.

Selecting the Ideal Throw

Narrowing down the broad search for the ideal throw is easy when you know a couple of key features to look for. The material, size, color, pattern, trim and care instructions all play a role in deciding which blanket will serve the needs of the space.

Material: The material of the throw will determine the overall feel of the blanket against the skin. Cotton is incredibly breathable and makes a soft choice for the warmer months of the year. Wool throws are much warmer and help to beat the chill on the colder days.

Size: If the throw is decorative and rarely used, a small size may be ideal. If wrapping up on the sofa is an appeal, choosing a large throw will give extra cuddle space.

Color: Consider the room the throw will be decorating and choose a color designed to complement the existing color scheme. Select a neutral hue to keep the look simple or opt for a vibrant shade for elevated visual interest.

Pattern: Decorating with a throw is a great way to break up the solid fabrics in the home and add a pop of color or pattern. Eye-catching animal prints, clean geometrics and simple stripes are just a few of the patterns that can be used to lend a little flair to an area.

Trim: Sometimes, it is the little things that help to set a throw apart from the rest. A row of fringe along the bottom and decorative stitching are a few of the finishing details that can draw the eye to this piece of home decor.

Care Instructions: Throw blankets that are going to be used frequently or featured in homes with children and pets need to be easy to care for. Check out the care instructions to determine if the throw is machine washable or if dry cleaning is required.

Throw blankets aren't just a great way to give a room a designer-style look; they are also a thoughtful gift idea. Take into consideration the recipients overall style when choosing a throw as a gift and wrap it up in a simple shirt box. Make it a package set by pairing it with an accent pillow.
