Get Snuggle-Ready: Cozy Up to the Best Knit Blankets, Baskets & More
It may be hard to switch gears from summer while your tan is still fierce, but there’s a good chance that fall is actually right around the corner (after all, first comes back-to-school commercials, then comes sweaters). It’s totally ok, because autumn is that sweet spot between summer and winter where the sun still shines, yet it’s chilly enough for plenty of sweat-free cuddling. Get your home snuggle-ready with these 15 knit pillows, poufs, rugs, and more, all as cozy as your favorite sweater.
