Getting Cozy: Sweater Inspired Throw Blankets

Fall is easily my favorite season. I love the chill in the air, the burst of orange, red and yellow on the trees and in the streets. But most of all I love wrapping myself in soft, cozy knits, fleeces and flannels. Comfort fabrics also make great blankets. Take this little selection of sweater inspired throws, for example. Throw blankets have the added bonus of allowing you to turn down the heat a notch or two. Most of these throws include organic or recycled materials making them an extra green home design element for fall.
