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!

Responsibly sourced merino and acrylic comprise this lower-priced version of the popular trend. Measuring just a few inches smaller than a full-size bed, these throws feature a contrasting directional knit trim and are offered in crème or smoke shades. Added bonus: free shipping!

By using acrylic fibers that mimic the look of a finer, more breathable merino, the cost of these throws is significantly cheaper than many competitors. For $75, you can score the look—for much less. The smaller size (approx 24"x48") is perfect for draping across the edge of the sofa or snuggling under while binge watching your favorite shows.

This self-proclaimed "fiber artist" from Lithuania sources the softest, finest merino wool (18 microns) and felts each item by hand, for a difference you can truly feel. Considering the full-sized mattress blanket retails for under $300, you can indulge in sumptuous softness without busting your budget.

Offering a similar look as some of the more expensive versions, this is crafted in 100% acrylic, for a more palatable price point. Plus, it's part of a duvet cover collection in similar cream and blue hues, should you choose to give your bedroom a facelift in the process!

This seller is the OG of the blanket trend. Crafted from an extremely soft merino wool, Ohhio's handmade Grande Punto Large blankets can be yours for approximately $500 (large enough to top a queen-sized mattress comfortably.) You can choose from a myriad of colors – including plenty of neutrals and brights – that are sure to match any décor.

It's easy to find giant knit blankets in soft, neutral colors like gray and cream, but we had to add Woollish to this list because of the Etsy seller's wide range of brighter, more saturated hues (like the playful purple in the above item, starting at $73 (including the extra 20% off Etsy is currently offering for the gifting season).

King and Eye Crochet

We can get behind this England-based seller who uses only the finest spun wool she can find, and is a proud supporter of local family businesses. Inspired by Scandinavian-style home decor, her blankets are on the pricier side due to the fine gauge wool, but you can also score a smaller lap blanket for a fraction of the cost. She offers an array of colors, though we're partial to the blush, gray, and ivory shades.

This luxe throw is handcrafted in small batches using 100% Peruvian Highland wool, and even comes with a numbered tag for added uniqueness. 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.

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.
