Much has changed in the 10,000 years since cave dwellers walked the earth, but there are still some lasting habits of these early humans that hold steadfast today. Take, for instance, the paleo diet or using furs to stay warm and dry. Civilization may be rethinking using actual fur, but that doesn't mean they have to eschew the joy and benefits of a fur blanket. Nest Casa has gathered some of the best fur blankets available today, keeping the whole family toasty and relaxed.

How To Responsibly Enjoy Fur Blankets

Today, there are attractive, synthetic alternatives to real fur that can be fashioned into coverings, giving any home a comforting and luxurious vibe. These are also more accommodating of current lifestyles as they are hypoallergenic and easily cleaned and cared for. However, if real fur is desired, a more humane approach is to upcycle fur from previously harvested coats, such as vintage jackets. Or, one can stick with Angora and other rabbit furs (which are shorn from the animal).

Whether tossed over the back of an easy chair, kept close to the family sofa, or draped across a bed for a posh and slightly unconventional look, fur blankets add visual interest and texture to any space.

Editor's Picks: Fur Blankets

1. Best Cozy Faux Fur

Pottery Barn

Faux Fur Ruched Throw, 50 x 60", Ivory
$179.00 BUY NOW

Coziness is at the top of the list for any faux fur blanket.—and this style from Pottery Barn takes home the winning prize. The silky fibers are ruched, which gives this slinky throw a gentle ripple effect. Its weighty feel and its Standard 100 OEKO-TEX rating ensure that this blanket contains nothing harmful to people or pets.

2. Best Earth-Tone Faux Fur Blanket:


Brady Faux-Fur Blanket
$165.00 BUY NOW

Earth tones are happening at the moment (especially at Nest Casa). Do you desire something soft, pleasing, and in a soothing neutral color scheme? The Apparis Brady faux fur blanket checks all the boxes. This throw is as luxurious as the real deal and then some (which means it’s dry clean only). 

3. Best Shag Faux Fur Blanket:


Icelandic Sheepskin Throw
$249.00 BUY NOW

A Seventies mood has been trending. The slinky, crimped texture of this simulated fur gives off a groovy vibe. Based on Tibetan lamb’s wool, this truly special blanket envelopes the user in fuzzy comfort. It comes in three sizes and three colors: graphite, nickel, and ivory.

4. Best Animal-Print Faux Fur Blanket:

Helen Moore

Faux Fur Throw - Ocelot
$354.00 BUY NOW

The call of the wild beckons with this uber-chic, ocelot-inspired faux fur throw. Handmade in the United Kingdom for Helen Moore, this faux suede–backed blanket could inspire tales of a South American rainforest adventure (where the only thing shot was an image on a camera).

5. Best Faux Fur Blanket for Beloved Canines:

Pippa & Co

Classic Dog Blanket - Charcoal/Gray Fur - Small
$173.00 BUY NOW

Even Fido deserves to lounge in a gentle, cuddly faux fur blanket. Arriving from Pippa & Co., this throw is, truly, a dog’s best friend. Made to mimic lambswool, it comes in three colors and is trimmed in lambswool twill. Since this will endure its fair share of whatever your four-legged friend traipses inside, it's machine washable.

6. Best Upcycled Fur Blanket:


JG Switzer Toscana Sheep Fur White Throw Backed with Lambswool/Cashmere
$695.00 BUY NOW

Rather than source new fur, this Toscana sheep fur throw from JG Switzer is upcycled from glove factory remnants that have been reconstructed into the fabric. The fur is, then, applied to a lambswool and cashmere backing (which is made in a mill dating back to the 1700s). Each piece is handcrafted, so no two are exactly alike. 

7. Best Designer Fur Blanket:


Chanel 78.5" Orylag Rabbit Fur & CC Cashmere Stole/Throw Blanket
$2,385.00 BUY NOW

Gabrielle Chanel, a.k.a. Coco Chanel, made luxury out of the most common concepts of the time. Everyday clothing staples of the French lifestyle—the mariniere shirt, sailor collars, and men's suiting—were fodder for Chanel’s innovative creations. So, why not turn a ubiquitous throw blanket into a designer piece? Backed in gray flannel fabric with the famous double Cs, this versatile Orylag rabbit fur piece can be draped over the couch for cozy T.V. watching—or, perhaps, thrown over one's shoulders and worn outside as stole.

8. Best Faux Fur Blanket for Babies:


Luxie Flake Giraffe Pocket Blanket
$65.00 BUY NOW

Being wrapped in faux fur as a baby is glamorous—not to mention the sense of safety and security. This fluffy soft baby blanket has a pocket and strap to hold baby's favorite toy and pacifier safely. 

9. Best Colorful Faux Fur Blanket:


Shirley Blanket
$250.00 BUY NOW

Apparis takes the concept of faux even further with the Shirley blanket. Made from double-sided, trademarked Pluck faux fur, this bedding-size throw comes in a rainbow of artificial colors. It also boasts a weighted blanket feel, coming in at almost eight pounds.

10. Best Oversized Faux Fur Blanket:


Faux Bunny Fur Throw
$1,295.00 BUY NOW

Measuring 51 inches by 71 inches—with two inches of deep faux fur—this throw has a unique marbled effect on its luxurious top. It is lined with a microsuede backing.
