Best Overall: Best Home Fashion Faux Fur Throw

This faux fur throw made our list for a few reasons: it looks and feels like authentic animal fur, it is machine washable, it is affordable and best of all it comes in a lot of fab color choices. Made from thick, brushed fabric that’s expertly dyed to mimic the multi-tonal hues of real fur, the Home Fashion Faux Fur Throw by Best Home Fashion is highly rated and reviewed. Consumers note the impressive weight, the rich texture, and heavenly (not scratchy) soft feel.

The Best Home Fashion Throw is available in three sizes: 54 x 36 inches, 58 x 60 inches and our favorite, the oversized 58 x 84 inches. Not only can you get this blanket in three different sizes but it is also available in twelve different styles. Some of the available and noteworthy styles include coyote, tawny fox, platinum frost, iced fox, grey snake and more. Each blanket is lined in coordinating ultra-soft faux rabbit fur.

"It’s hard to call a large, thick blanket delicate, but this one does need to be handled with care. The reason? Its acrylic, fur-like fibers can get matted and tangled easily. We found this out the hard way as our toddler dropped a wet gummy vitamin onto the faux fur side of the blanket and it was difficult (and messy) to remove."—Linnea Covington, Product Tester

Best Lightweight: Chanasya Super Soft Fuzzy Fur Faux Throw Blanket

If you want the look and feel of a plush faux fur blanket without the exorbitant price tag then check out this Super Soft Fuzzy Fur Throw Blanket by Chanasya. Priced well and with 11 different colors to choose from, this is one blanket that you can stock up on. 

Crafted from a lightweight, medium weight fabric, this throw is ideal for layering up any room for added warmth in cooler months or for cozy comfort during the times of year that the A/C is cranking. Quality construction with machine-spun yarn technology is utilized by Chanasya to create top of the line blankets that won’t shed, fade or lose their softness wash after wash, year after year.

All Chanasya faux fur throw blankets are made from 100 percent non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials. They are available in your choice of a 50-inch x 65-inch or 60-inch x 70-inch throw; in twin, queen or full blankets; or in a set that comes with two pillow covers and one 50-inch x 65-inch throw blanket. 

"A lot of faux fur blankets put all the effort into one side of the throw, leaving the other covered in cheaper material that’s not nearly as soft. This isn’t the case with the Chanasya Wolf, however. It’s super soft all around, which we found surprising given the whole thing is made out of polyester."—Linnea Covington, Product Tester

Best Long-Pile: West Elm Faux Fur Brushed Tips Throw

Available in platinum (a white background with silvery gray tips), pink blush (a creamy base with a soft blush color mixed throughout), nightshade (a stunning, midnight blue), copper (a chocolate brown and black) and stone white. You can’t go wrong with any of those lovely color choices. 

One of the things that set this throw apart—aside from the great price and gorgeous colors—is the long-pile faux fur used in all the blankets. The long-pile faux fur gives these throws a luxurious, realistic look that adds an element of rich opulence to your space.

Best Budget: Pinzon Faux Fur Throw Blanket

Priced well, this velvety soft, thick throw blanket will be your cuddle up go-to in every room of your home. No two blankets are alike, as they are individually dyed to create a natural look with authentic color variations. One side has a half-inch of comb-your-fingers-through faux fur and the other side of the throw has short, velvet-soft microfiber. It's available in Alpine Brown, Frost Grey or Ivory, and this throw blanket comes in two sizes: standard 50-inch x 60-inch or, for those that want to wrap themselves up head to toe in sumptuous softness, there’s the 63-inch x 87-inch oversized throw. The Pinzon throw is machine washable for easy care.  

"In terms of warmth, think of this item more like a summer faux fur, something you could drape on to keep a breeze off but not necessarily a blanket that will keep you toasty while a blizzard rages outside. Even if it isn’t hefty, though, it is soft. Plus, since it doesn’t shed, you don’t have to worry about this blanket making a mess."—Linnea Covington, Product Tester

What to Look for in a Faux Fur Blanket

Size Faux fur blankets come in various sizes—some just cover your lap, while other oversized versions allow you to cuddle up with whomever you choose. If you plan to use yours on a bed or other furniture, be sure to take those dimensions into consideration, too.

Softness Not all faux fur is created equal. Different blankets are made with different types of "fur" with varying degree of softness. Also, if you plan to curl up with it on a regular basis, you'll want one that stays soft after a few trips through the washing machine.

Style Faux fur blankets come in a variety of colors and patterns, each of which can add an interesting element of design to any room. If the blanket will be on display, be sure to choose one that will best complement the space—or go bold and pick one that will really add some pizzazz. When it comes to faux fur, it’s really about your personal taste above all.
