I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…I love cozy! I do. I hate winter but I love cozy! There are a few things I crave to keep me sane during long winter months. I need my coffee, snuggly sweaters, warm socks, and a cozy blanket. If you follow me on Instagram or remember my blog post from a few weeks ago, then you remember I was looking for the perfect affordable merino wool chunky knit throw. The holy grail of cozy.
I searched sites like Etsy and Amazon searching for one at a reasonable price and ultimately my search lead me to find Artizen Home. I got the “Super Chunky Merino Wool Lap Throw”, and I couldn’t be happier with it. You can find the direct link to it by clicking here. They offer over 20 different colors and I got “on the lam” which is a beautiful natural wool color. They are shipped within the US and I got it super fast. I was a little nervous and wasn’t sure whether the lap throw would be big enough. I have to say though I’m actually really happy with the size, it’s perfect for snuggling on the couch and yet small enough that I can drape it over a chair and it looks cute and not too bulky. The warmth and weight of this thing is unbelievable.
Now I guess the question is…is there anything I don’t like about it? The one thing I would mention, if I’m being completely honest, would be that it does shed a little. I haven’t had it long enough to confirm whether it slows down or stops shedding, but I mean my dog sheds and I kept him around. So it definitely wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.
So if you have been on the fence about one of these blankets, I hope this gives you the final push. I think they are worth every penny, but in all fairness I am a blanket junkie. I know it’s not an everyday type of purchase but keep in mind Valentines Day is right around the corner, so it just may be the perfect time to ask for one. I know you won’t regret it. If you already have one of these amazing throws I’d love to hear what you think of yours. Here’s to happy cozy snuggling!
