When styling your bed, your thoughts probably turn first to choosing the perfect set of luxury sheets. And after that, perhaps a duvet cover, quilt, or other accessories. But there’s an important layer to luxury bedding and home decor that you should never overlook: your blanket.
Typically nestled between the sheets and duvet cover or coverlet, a well-made blanket is key to year-round sleep comfort. Luxury blankets are available in a variety of fabrics, weights, and designs to accommodate seasons, temperatures, and sleeping styles. Choose cotton for warmer weather or “hot sleepers” and heavier weight pure wool or blends for extra warmth on cold nights. Best of all, today’s luxury blanket styles are stylish and beautiful in their own right; some of the most popular blankets are available in throw blanket (to drape over the back of a chair or sofa) and baby blanket sizing for this very reason. Learn more about the differences between a luxury throw and a blanket here.
At Fine Linen and Bath, we proudly carry luxury blankets for beds in a multitude of styles, weights, color choices, and materials. Your options range from a cashmere blanket to an organic cotton blanket to a pure merino wool blanket and beyond, every one of which is crafted by the finest linen manufacturers on earth. Our design team has put together a guide to some of our favorite plush luxury blankets for your review.

Caring for Your Washable Luxury Blankets
With proper care, your bed blanket will stay beautiful and comfortable for many years. There’s more good news: many cotton blankets are machine washable. Of course, we recommend reading and following the manufacturer’s washing instruction guidelines to the letter for best results.
If you are washing your cotton or washable fleece blankets, we recommend the following:
- Spot treat any stains as soon as they occur with a small amount of detergent before laundering.
- Machine wash blankets by themselves in a front-loading machine using cold or warm water (pending manufacturer’s instructions) on a gentle cycle with a small amount of detergent.
- Tumble dry on the lowest heat setting possible to minimize shrinkage. You should not iron your blanket.
- Never use bleach, fabric softener, or dryer sheets.
When washing any type of blanket, we recommend using a detergent specially formulated for luxury linen such as Heritage Park Luxury All-Purpose Detergent. This concentrated detergent contains powerful cleaning enzymes to clean and remove tough stains while preserving the integrity of your fine fabric. (Note: never wash a weighted blanket or faux fur blanket unless the care instructions specifically allow).
