Brooklinen launched in 2014, and since then they’ve developed a massive following — and for good reason.

We love their Pure Virgin Wool Blanket in Greige as a great gift for any occasion. Handmade in Germany, the throw consists of high-quality lambswool — and comes with a 60-day risk-free trial, so if it’s not exactly how you imagined, you can return it. It’s 59" x 83", so it works well on a couch or a bed.
