Unlike toppers, over-blankets and throws can be used either on the bed or for nestling under on the sofa. However, bear in mind that the elements in throws are not usually designed to be sat or slept on, so they should not be used as an under blanket unless the product states as such.
Here are some more sofa blankets you can snuggle up with.
If you’re going for an under-blanket, the material doesn’t matter as much as it won’t be next to your skin, although you may want to check that it is memory foam compatible if you have this type of mattress to ensure you remain comfortable.
For over-blankets, simply pick the material you find most appealing in appearance and touch. Some throws are dual-sided, offering fleece on one side and faux sheepskin on another to give you more choice in look and feel.
If you love memory foam, check out our best memory foam pillows.
Being able to select from multiple levels of warmth to get the temperature just right is a very welcome feature that we’d recommend looking out for. Ranging in options from two to nine or ten, each blanket will have different temperature settings, and in this case, the more the better.
Some will automatically turn off after a set number of hours and others will allow you to select how many hours the blanket will remain on for before it switches off. Whether to stop you from waking up sweaty or for those prone to falling asleep on the sofa, it pays to be safe while saving energy and money.

Homefront’s supersize topper is ideal for restless sleepers who want as precise control as possible. Using the illuminated LED controls, both sleepers can personalise the heat with 9 temperature settings for the body and feet separately. There are an impressive 10 timer settings, too. It's particularly suitable for arthritis sufferers, too, because it's able to heat just the feet, if required.
Our other highly coveted blanket from Dreamland comes in mattress topper form and is just as opulent as the rest of their range. A brilliant pick for those with dust or other allergies, it’s woven from 200 thread count cotton and can be both washed and tumble dried.
If you thought some of our other options were good value, check out this entry from Britain’s favourite bedding brand Silentnight. It comes in several sizes – perfect for kitting out the whole household for less – and it heats up in just a few minutes.
When nothing but the best will do for you and your home, consider this luxury throw from Dreamland. It is incredibly soft and boasts heating tech that warms up in less than 5 minutes, as well as an LED control with 6 temperature settings and a timer.
Coming in at a great price for a king-sized blanket and with single and double options too, this basic white topper is an excellent no-frills choice. There are only 3 heat settings (low, medium, and high), but it’s perfectly sufficient for anyone wanting to stay warm without breaking the bank.
This ultra-soft, plush microfleece throw comes in a variety of different colours so you can hopefully find one that matches the decor of your room. It heats up in 5 minutes and lets you customise the temperature to the degree with its 6 available heat settings.
Both you and your bed buddy will be able to find your perfect combination with this dual-controlled fleecy number. Each side gets a choice of 6 temperature settings and 9 timer settings, both of which can be safely left on all night if you choose.
Looking as good as any designer blanket, this is the ideal living room or armchair throw for the style-conscious. The reversible fabric is a cuddly flannel on one side and sherpa on the other, and while only single bed-sized, it's large enough to wrap you up completely.
If you're after a no-nonsense, washable heated mattress topper to stave off the chills this winter, this one is a safe bet. It doesn’t get as hot as some, but with a simple polyester finish, thin wiring and an elasticated skirt to secure it in place, it is practical and comfortable.
