I’m writing this post from the comfort of my own bed, snuggled up warm and looking outside at the snowy London. Gosh, there’s absolutely no way that I want to be leaving my bedroom. To pass the time on this evening I’ve been looking at home decor account on Pinterest and I came across the loveliest chunky knit blanket collages that make me want to snuggle up in my bed even more.

After doing some digging, I decided to put together a list of few of my favourite chunky knit blankets as well as a few places on where to buy them. I hope you like these!

The chunky knit blanket trend first became popular in 2014 and one of the first to emerge with the trend was Anna Marinenko, who made headlines for all the right reasons across major newsoutlets. Her brand, Ohhio, sold a fortune of these handknit blankets that she made just with her own hands. The prices of the blankets went up to $900 and the company has now expanded to selling even cat and god baskets – so cute!  What I love about Ohhio is that in addition to selling their own products, they also have a YouTube channel dedicated to DIY tutorials, in case you wanted to make your own chunky knit blanket or maybe even a cloud shaped cushion? Their website also has a selection of DIY supplies if you wanted to make your own blanket instead of buying one. (DIY prices start at $45.00, so it’s still not the cheapest option to go with.)

Ohhio’s selling point is the quality of their materials – all chunky knit blankets are made exclusively with yarn that contains wool. The blankets are destined to keep you warm! They use a few variations of different yarns for their products, but the most popular one is by far the Merino Wool. This is also very likely the material that you will see across Pinterest when you type in “chunky knit blanket”.

With that being said, I would dare to say that most of the images that you see floating around on Pinterest that feature beautiful chunky knit blankets actually come from a company called WoolHugs. I remember seeing a post on Marianna’s blog about these blankets last year, and ever since she made that post people have been ruthlessly stealing her images and plastered them all over their product pages and presented the product as their own. The original, however, comes from a brand called WoolHugs as stated in her post. WoolHugs have since then collaborated with a ton of different influencers, which has lead to them having wonderful images to work with. My personal favourite is the blush pink chunky knit blanket featured below. I am trying to convince my boyfriend it’s a good idea to buy this while typing this ❤

The popularity of these wonderful blankets has prompted a lot of knitters to get their hands busy and start knitting. Etsy, everyone’s favourite place for everything handcrafted is full of these dreamy throws.

The beauty of Etsy is that not only can you find chunky knit blankets at any price points, you know you are supporting an independent business by purchasing from there. In the case of chunky knit blankets, the business in question is very likely a woman, perhaps even a mom, which makes it that much more special. When it comes to price points, there really is everything to choose from: you can go with a blanket that is the price of a lunch meal, all the way up to £1200 which is more than what I pay for rent.

The top dog on Etsy is ColorWaysGallery, who has sold almost 5000 products since 2013 and has an average rating of 5 stars. Not too shabby. The company currently sells 250 items, but their most popular products are grey and white chunky knit blankets in various sizes. They also sell their own branded Smoosh Yarn, which leads me to believe that they may also have a farm full of sheep that take part in the business. How lovely would that be – everything is manufactured from scratch in the same place!

 

However, Etsy prices tend to be a little on the higher side when compared to the rest of online commerce. There’s also the problem that not all sellers ship internationally, so you might need to browse around a little before settling on any single seller.

Enter Amazon – my personal favourite for most things in life, because of the free shipping and seamless returns policy that they have. I have featured a couple of my favourite sellers that I could find. There are a lot of sellers on Amazon offering these chunky knit blankets, so there is a lot to choose from. A lot of sellers who make their own handmade produce have also migrated over to Amazon because of the extra exposure that it provides, so don’t be surprised if you see an Etsy seller listed on Amazon too!

All of the images and products that I’ve featured here are made of wool, but there are other alternatives for people who might be allergic to wool or who just don’t want to spend hundred of dollars to buy a chunky knit blanket that they might end up not enjoying as much as they would have thought. Chunky knit blankets are also made out of synthetic materials, and you can find plenty of acrylic throws here.

Another option for those of us who are on a bit of a budget is to make their own chunky knit blanket! It’s not too difficult as there are plenty of YouTube tutorials on the subject. You can find the yarn for your blankets here.

What do you think of these fuzzy warm chunky knit blankets? Is it on your to buy list or would you happily just skip this trend?
