A common misconception is that throws and blankets are one and the same. This however is not true. In most cases, a blanket is not decorative in color, theme or style.
Blankets are primarily used for warmth, to cuddle under on a chilly night or to layer over a sick child.
Throws on the other hand are actually home decor accessories., and while they do offer a cover of warmth, they boast of vibrant colors, unique designs and a stunning drapery over your sofa.
Throws bring oohs and aahs, when presented as gifts or when someone walks into your home. You can decorate the interior of your home with throws, easily coordinating a running theme, such as a safari design or vintage grapes or baby animals- the possibilities are endless!
So why do throws often go by Throw Blankets?
Because often that's how people recognize what you are referring to- say "throws" and they're thinking baseball. Say "blanket" and they're thinking comforter. So combine the two and everyone is on the same track. To-mah-to-To-may-to
Throw blankets are usually made of rayon, silk, fleece, cotton, fur, velvet, chenille or a blend of cotton and polyester.
100% cotton throws are very popular because the design possibilities are limited only to the creators imagination, which offers customers a huge variety of options to choose from. You can find anything from horses to inspirational messages to licensed sports throws.
