The blanket scarf: it is a functional, cozy, and stylish gift. I bet you want one for yourself and a plaid blanket scarf for every bridesmaid in your wedding party. You want one for mom, for when she puts her feet up on the couch and watches her favorite tv show. You want one for grandma, for your aunt, and you want one for all your girlfriends this holiday season at the big gift exchange. Heck, you might even want something similar for guests at your wedding (because who doesn’t love to snuggle up in cozy fuzzy comfort?)
As a mom, I want one for the playground and when I go on grocery store runs, coffee in hand; or going with the kids and hubby on a trail walk.
I love a good blanket scarf especially when it is a TRUE blanket scarf. A true blanket scarf is big enough to wrap around yourself like a blanket, yet is not too heavy; this allows you to wear it with style as a trendy scarf around your neck and unwrap it around you when you get chilly. However, on my recent quest for the best blanket scarves, I found out the cold truth: not all blanket scarves are created equal. (Note: a blanket scarf is the big sister to the shawl — the shawl is more like this and not quite as large.)
Where to Buy Blanket Scarves
On my quest to discover where to buy blanket scarves, I realized many fell lower than my expectations. Perhaps I have high expectations, or maybe I think you should always get your money’s worth. Whichever the case, it was surprising.
I quickly looked where to buy blanket scarves in-store and online and it was obvious that many lengths were much too short, fabrics were a little too thin, and even some blanket scarves were rough or itchy — and who wants to wear that?! And even worse, I could tell (based on reviews and/or my own in-store appraisals) that some blanket scarves were prone to fray, unravel, and appear “worn-in” way too quickly. To me, that’s a real bummer.
This time of year, you can go to practically any major retailer and find shelves of colorful plaid blanket scarf and wrap options. Oh, they’ll pull you in with a cheap price tag but that’s exactly what you’ll get — a cheap plaid blanket scarf with no real warmth, weird frayed edges, a shorter length, and total lack of personalization. Those are great for wearing on a quick coffee run, but at the apple orchard when you leave your jacket in the car so you don’t have to carry it? Yeah, a cheap one isn’t going to cut it.
