Five Plus One is our weekly series of buyer’s guides. We pick a specific category and dig up five great options along with one that’s a little outside the norm.
Fall is almost here, which means bundling up, wearing shearling slippers, and using wool blankets on those colder evenings. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best wool blankets available. Regardless of the price point, you’re comfortable spending, we hope you find something on this list that is suitable for you and your chilly feet this fall.
1) Blacksaw: Harvest Moon Reversible Throw
Blacksaw‘s Harvest Moon Reversible Throw is a beautiful wool blanket with a charmingly minimalist style to it. It’s made from hypoallergenic alpaca wool, which ensures this blanket will be warm, comforting, and less likely to flare up those pesky allergies. It is 70″ x 53, making it a decent throw size or a suitable additional layer for most beds.
2) Allevol x Mollot & Sons: Donegal Tweed Wool Blanket Orange
Donegal Tweed is a favorite fabric of many menswear aficionados, and if anything it only looks better on Allevol x Mollot & Sons Wool Blanket. Made in Ireland from 100% wool, this true, Irish Donegal has a beautiful orange/white colorway with just a few colorful neps peeking through. At 71″ x 60″ this blanket would make a beautiful throw for nearly any home — it’s hard to think of a color scheme this wouldn’t complement.
3) Ginew x Dyani White Hawk: FACING EAST Wool Blanket
Ginew‘s latest collaboration with Native American artist Dyani White Hawk is one of their most compelling products yet, and that’s really saying something. This blanket features different colorways on opposing sides and a custom suede patch. Made by Pendleton from 82%/18% pure virgin wool/cotton blend, this large, 80″ x 64″ blanket is one of the most unique on this list and would make a solid heirloom in the future. In the meantime, it will look sick draped anywhere in your home.
Available for $425 from Ginew.
4) Swiss Army Style Wool Blanket Reproduction
If you are looking for the added warmth of a wool blanket without breaking the bank, then these Swiss Army Style Wool Blanket Reproductions are an excellent option that still have a touch point in our niche. Made from 55%/45% wool/synthetic fabrics in an 86″ x 66″ size, these blankets are a unique way to adorn the back of your couch, the foot of your bed, or the bed in your guest room.
Available for $27 from Sportman’s Guide
5) The Tartan Blanket Co: Striped Herringbone Blanket
While virgin wool is all well and good, it’s great to see premium brands embracing recycled materials — the right way forward. The Tartan Blanket Co.‘s Striped Herringbone Blanket is constructed from a 70%/30% recycled wool/recycled fabrics blend. It may be a bit on the thin side for a wool blanket, but it has the benefit of being machine washable, which is useful for those of you who want to snuggle up under this while enjoying some take-out.
Featuring a gorgeous, striped herringbone pattern these unique blankets are one of a kind, each featuring a slightly different pattern.
Plus One – Indigofera Jeans x Björn Atldax: “Dia De Muertos” Norwegian Wool Blanket
Indigofera might be known for its jeans and shirting, but their ever-expanding blanket selection is nothing to scoff at, either. One of their newest models, “Dia De Muertos”, features motifs from the traditional celebration of the same name, and was being created in collaboration with Björn Atldax. Made in Norway from 100% Norwegian wool, this might not be your usual wool blanket, but its the uniqueness of this piece that sets it apart from the rest on this list.
Available for $425 from Blue Owl
