How Big is a Throw Blanket? What Sizes Do They Typically Come In?
Throw blankets come in a variety of sizes, depending on the intended use and the size of the bed it is intended to cover. Generally, a throw blanket is meant to be draped over furniture, such as a sofa or chair, or used as a lap blanket. For this purpose, a standard throw blanket size is usually between 50 to 60 inches wide and 60 to 70 inches long. Most Asterlark throw blankets are 51 inches wide by 67 inches long, not including fringe.
If the throw blanket is intended to cover a bed, it is often referred to as a “bedspread” or “afghan,” and the size can vary depending on the type and size of bed. A twin size bedspread or afghan is typically between 80 to 86 inches wide by 90 to 96 inches long. A full-size bedspread or afghan is usually between 96 to 100 inches wide and 96 to 110 inches long. A queen-size bedspread or afghan is typically between 102 to 118 inches wide and 96 to 118 inches long. A king-size bedspread or afghan is usually between 118 to 124 inches wide and 96 to 118 inches long.
No matter the size of the throw blanket, it is a great way to add warmth and style to any room.
