During peak periods of transitional weather, the best items to have on hand are those that can be used year-round, especially when it comes to soft goods. Having the right bedding, blankets, and sheets to get you through weeks of indecisive temperatures prevents a lot of fussy nights. And what’s worse than thinking you’ve grabbed the perfect throw blanket only for it to become too hot in less than an hour? Of course, layering is the most effective during the in-between seasons, and fortunately, it’s really easy to do if you’ve got some quality blankets on hand.

As the editor of The Best List, I get a firsthand look at the products readers are loving just as much as our staffers. Through it, I’ve discovered some ultimate favorites in all-season soft goods. However, few have impressed me more than the Best Overall bed blanket winner: the Organic Lofty Waffle Blanket from Quince.

What is the Organic Lofty Waffle Blanket?

Made from 100% long-staple organic cotton, Quince’s Organic Lofty Waffle Blanket has a trendy and breathable waffle texture that helps to keep you warm without overheating. You can also use it on its own or as an additional bedding layer for an added dose of comfort. “I used this blanket to replace a similar model I had from a more expensive brand,” says AT contributor Nic. “This blanket seems a little sturdier, which is surprising because of how light it feels overall.” If you’re looking for something smaller, it’s also available as a throw blanket.

True to the brand’s values, the blanket is free from harmful dyes, chemicals, and toxins often used in the textile manufacturing process. This plush, soft, and oh-so-cozy find is even made in facilities that run on windmill-generated power and use water created through reverse osmosis. At under $100 in Queen and under, the Lofty Waffle Blanket is top-quality, ethically produced bedding. Quince sells directly to consumers, forgoing the high costs associated with traditional retail supply chains.

Enjoyed having this blanket over the winter, the large size and waffle texture kept me toasty. I feel it’s going to be perfect for spring and summer as well. Not too hot, but a good weight and comfortably warm.” — Sylvia
