With winter in full effect, nothing's cozier than snuggling up to a crackling fire (or radiator, urbanites) in style, wrapped in a warm blanket. Available at BranchHome.com, Ratzer's unique Tracks Plaid throw is as soft as it is chic. No harsh chemicals were used on the blanket, and all soaps and spinning oils applied in the manufacturing process are biodegradable. And, to make yourself even more comfortable, know that this product was certified by KbT for its demeter-quality wool and Eco-Tex standard 100 for its sewing thread and polyester label. So, feel free to warm up to the possibilities of adding this piece to your home.
