Touting its products as the “biggest, best blankets in the world,” the Big Blanket Co. offers several styles of soft and cozy throw blankets that measure a whopping 10 by 10 feet. Before starting the company in 2018, co-founders Bryan Simpson and Dane Watts had uncovered a problem: The average throw blanket is 50” x 60” and the average human is 65” tall. They did the math and it simply didn’t add up — especially for Dane, who’s 6’8″ and really hates small blankets. So, Dane retired from his career playing professional basketball and Bryan quit his day job, and the two set out to not only make the biggest blanket, but the best blanket in cloud-like materials.
Now the big result of that dream has been welcomed into more than 150,000 homes. Nearly 8,000 reviews on the company’s website give Big Blankets an impressive 4.9 stars, with shoppers raving about the quality and size. For perspective, Big Blankets are four times the size of an average throw blanket and larger than a king-size blanket. Among the things Big Blanket Co. notes can easily fit inside the 10′ by 10′ comfort of a Big Blanket?: Sumo wrestler Yama, 7’4″ Serbian basketball player Boban Marjanović, and, of course, the whole family.
We chose three Big Blanket options that your family might enjoy cuddling under, so check out the descriptions below to see whether the Original Stretch, Premier Plush, or Premium Woven is right for your clan. Or, we totally understand if you just want to keep it all to yourself and wrap up like a human burrito!
Original Stretch Blanket
The Original Stretch is the company’s best-selling 10′ x 10′ throw blanket, featuring a specially formulated blend of polyester and spandex with temperature regulating fabric so you don’t get too hot or cold. Made with a four-way stretch that’s four times softer than standard throw blankets or king-size blankets, it’s like the yoga pants of blankets.
