There's just something about fall that makes us want to snuggle up with a good book, a great cup of tea, and the best wool blanket money can buy. But because we don't all have limitless budgets, we've rounded up 15 of our favorites at a range of prices, even including a couple under $100. Why is wool worth the price, you ask? Prepare to meet the warmest, most durable, longest-lasting blanket you'll ever own.


A neutral-colored knit blanket will warm up any style decor. Drape it over a chair or the end of the bed so you can grab it whenever you need another layer.

If you're going to get an iconic Woolrich blanket, you may as well choose one in the original buffalo check plaid, created by this Woolrich, Pennsylvania mill back in 1850.

We love that this gray and white blanket shows off how modern wool can look. Made of 100% merino wool, it's not that itchy wool of your childhood, but rather soft, and very resistant to pilling and stretching (it's also water-repellent).

You know how we always stress the importance of adding texture to a room? Well this one chunky, knotted piece provides all the texture your space will ever need.

One of our go-to sources for Made-in-America woolens, Faribault has been in business since 1865. A mix of new and recycled wool makes up this timeless blanket, sold by CB2. Also available in a "plus" motif.

Our Previous Lists:


Created by Etsy shop ohthisnose, this patterned blanket is handmade using Pendleton wool and corduroy binding for the edges.

A favorite for its eco-chic approach to woolen goods, Canadian brand Coyuchi follows USDA Organic and Fair Trade standards.

Hand-knit from chunky merino wool, this dreamy blanket is exactly what we need for lazy winter weekends. At almost $200, it's a bit of an investment, but we have a feeling we'll be cuddling up with it every day.

If any woolen blanket has reached icon status, it's most likely HBC's point blanket, which has been around for more than 200 years. From its humble beginning keeping fur trappers warm during the harsh Canadian winters, the blanket is now a staple in stylish cabins and country homes. This lighter-weight version of the classic comes with thinner stripes—and at a lower price point.

If you have kids or pets, opt for a machine-washable blanket, like this eco-friendly option. Because the last thing you want to worry about is bringing your wool blanket to the dry cleaner.

Other Good Resources:


A double faced ikat design in bright blue makes this wool blanket incredibly modern.

Hand-dyed and hand-woven on a family farm in Virginia, this striped blanket is an heirloom piece that will last for generations.

If you're going to splurge on this luxuriously textured, hand-woven blanket, then you might as well throw in the leather carrier as well. Bring this cozy throw to the park, the movies, or on a road trip.
