Best throw blankets list: Embrace the end of summer with these colourful blankets

With winter's arrival, the fuzzy blanket season is upon us.

While we'll miss the warmth of the sun, there's nothing quite like curling up on the couch with your favourite blanket, holding a good book or ready to watch your favourite show.

If you're hoping to be a little economical, besides keeping you warm, a new throw is the perfect way to hide the ageing spots on your well-loved lounge and add a bit of colour and freshness to the room.

Here are some of our favourites...
