Size doesn't always matter, but it certainly does to this brand. The folks at Big Blanket Co. pride themselves on having the largest blankets on the market, each measuring 10' x 10' (big enough to hang off a king-sized bed!). This plush option is our favorite because it's super-soft but still breathable — plus, it's washing machine safe!
