Welcome to week five of "Hiber-Nation," a new series of posts featuring home accessories and other odds-and-ends that will help make housebound-in-the-winter life a bit more enjoyable.
Below you'll find several throw blankets to help you comfortably ride out the winter. All are made from various eco-friendly materials ranging from organic cotton to yarn made from recycled plastic bottles to surplus Czech army blankets. And for the ultimate in sustainable snuggle-dom, I've included a couple of natural alpaca wool options, too.
