The Warmest 100% Wool Throw Blankets

These are my picks for best throw blankets made with 100% wool.

I have focused on blankets that are made of ultrawarm fibers like yak and cashmere. I’ve only listed blankets that contain at least 50% ultrawarm fibers.

See this article for a discussion about the advantages of these fibers — there’s also a summary at the end of the article.

Cashmere Throw Blankets

Baby Alpaca Wool Throw Blankets

Mohair Throw Blankets

Merino Wool Throw Blankets


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 super-warm and superlight — so goes to the top of the list. Good for travel. Fairly expensive.


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

Baby Alpaca

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