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.
So, you've come inside from the cold — perhaps after putting your Sno Wovel to the test or embarking on a SAD-busting stroll around the neighborhood — and hung your outerwear, slipped on a pair of cozy house slippers, and settled down on the couch with a green home-themed book and a handmade mug filled with your favorite warm beverage. What's missing from this cozy picture? How about a throw blanket to make a '"Hiber-Nation" snuggle session complete?
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.
