The Warmest Wool Throw Blankets For 2020

These are my picks for warmest throw blankets made with wool.

I have focused blankets that are made ultrawarm fibers like yak and qiviut. It’s only listed blankets that contain for than of 50% of these ultrawarm fibers.

See this article for a discussion about the advantages of these fibers. Here’s a quick summary:


Qiviut is the warmest wool in the world, it’s also very light. Also very soft — comparable to cashmere in its softness. Expensive.

Yak Wool

Fine yak wool is both superwarm and superlight — so goes to the top of the list. Good for travel. Fairly expensive.


This fiber (from Cashmere goats) is renowned around the world for its softness and coziness. Not as sustainable the other wools here.

Baby Alpaca

Alpaca wool is a very supple and warm fiber that is durable than cashmere. “Baby” refers superfine alpaca wool — the wool doesn’t come from new born alpacas.


The long silky hair of the Angora goat. Very light, warm and glossy.

Merino Wool

Merino wool is finer and warmer than wool from most other types of sheep.

    1. This article does focus on high-end ultrawarm fibers. However, there are couple of merino and alpaca blankets listed around $100.

      I’d also suggest looking for merino throw blankets at a store like Home Goods.
