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.
