A throw blanket, also known as a throw or a lap blanket, is a small blanket that is typically used to provide warmth and comfort. It is designed to be easily draped over a person’s lap, shoulders, or legs while sitting or lying down.
Throw blankets come in various sizes, but they are generally smaller than regular blankets, measuring around 50×60 inches (127×152 centimeters). They are often made from cozy materials like fleece, cotton, wool, or acrylic, providing softness and insulation.
Throw blankets are popular for their versatility and decorative purposes. They can be used in different settings, such as on couches, chairs, beds, or even outdoors. People often use throw blankets to add a touch of style to their living spaces or to snuggle up and keep warm while reading, watching TV, or relaxing.
