I’m a Former Anthropologie Employee, and These Are the Super Popular Blankets Customers Can’t Stop Buying for Fall
If there’s one thing I know Anthropologie does well, it’s cozy. They even have a ‘Stay Cozy’ gift shop! Whether it comes in the form of their standout candles or slippers, the retailer is the place to go for pieces that’ll prime your home for the colder seasons. You know — the months when you want to stay bundled up on your couch or bed all day. But the absolute coziest kind of item that the brand offers? That would be their unbelievably soft throw blankets.
Before I learned about all the hype surrounding them, I wrapped more than a few blankets when I worked at Anthro last holiday season, and I always looked forward to it. It’s impossible to keep yourself from running your hands over the buttery, silky-smooth faux fur. And it looks like hundreds of Anthro shoppers agree with me — if you’re searching for the perfect blanket for fall and winter, the Sophie Faux Fur Throw is hard to beat.
What is the Sophie Faux Fur Throw Blanket?
Your roommates or family members will be fighting to be the lucky one that gets to snuggle up with the Sophie throw on movie night — and even if you live alone, your guests will definitely be asking where you got it. This blanket is so soft that it has an instant soothing effect, which is of course helped along by how warm it is. If, come winter, you often find yourself struggling to beat the chill in your poorly heated pre-war apartment, wrapping yourself in this thick polyester material will be a game-changer. (Keep in mind, though, that to keep it in good shape, it should only be dry cleaned.) And wrapping yourself up won’t be a problem, since it has a huge 60- by 70-inch surface area.
Even though the Sophie blanket is lauded for its plush feel, the material looks totally luxe, too. In addition to the texture and slight sheen it gives off, the richness of the colors stands out. Kelly green, cantaloupe orange, olive green, raspberry pink, and a pinkish violet are all available if you want to add a pop of color to your bedroom or living room, but if you want to play it more neutral, there are ivory, cocoa, and light grey hues that’ll elevate your space just as well.

Especially with all the color options, the Sophie blanket makes for a gift that’ll please even the pickiest person. A throw that looks great and works wonders isn’t as easy to come by as you might think — and given the number of repeat buyers, gift-givers, and Sophie blanket devotees in the online reviews, you can be sure you’ll get your money’s worth.
