Don’t Go Bankrupt: Here’s Where to Buy Those Super Trendy Giant Knit Blankets For Less
Obsessed with the giant knit blanket trend but don’t feel like remortgaging your home in order to afford one? Fear not, because we’ve scoured a handful of online shops and retailers that offer the same look in a variety of price ranges. Read on to explore our choices below. From wool to acrylic and everything in between, you can look forward to indulging in this trend no matter how high (or low!) your budget may be.
A few things to note: these blankets do not come cheap, mostly because of the premium, fluffy wool used in such large quantities to create them. Where you’re going to save is either by picking a smaller size (a bed-sized blanket can run upwards of $800 or even well past $1,000 for sizes that could work as rugs) or by opting for synthetic fibers like acrylic.
If it’s pure wool that you’ve got your heart set on, expect to pay a premium. However, if you’re okay purchasing an acrylic or blended version, you can save significantly on a very similar look. Check out this assortment from Amazon for that chic, oversized knit you’re craving…without having to give up your daily latte! Amazon also has its own in-house decor brand that has some very chic and affordable picks.

Bed Bath & Beyond isn’t just where you buy your kitchen gadgets and tools. They also have a huge range of decor items such as knit blankets.

The Citizenry has a sublime collection of knitted throws to choose from.

Its size (40″x50″) is perfect for adding an element of luxe to any room. Each throw takes a weaver an entire day to knit (hence the $395 price tag) and is made exclusively in a fair trade environment. Looking for something a little lighter? There’s something for you too!

Serena & Lily
Serena & Lily’s take on the giant blanket trend comes in two neutral colors to complement any spot you choose to drape it. Made in Peru by local weavers, each piece is handmade and left in its unspun state for a touch of natural beauty. The price is on the higher side though, as you might expect; this one clocks in at just under $600. This is a relatively cheaper pick that’s doesn’t compromise on style or coziness.
