Yahoo Lifestyle is committed to finding you the best products at the best prices. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.

If you ask us where we see ourselves for the next few months, our reply would most certainly be: curled up on the sofa, under a super-soft blanket, re-watching The Crown with a big bowl of... well, whatever’s left in the kitchen.

But, finding the perfect blanket to snuggle up under is no easy feat.

We need one that’s durable, that stays as soft as when we bought it and doesn’t show just how much we’ve used it.

It needs to look chic so that we can hang it over the side of our sofa, or the back of our armchair, when not in use.

Most importantly, it needs to be as warm and cosy as it looks - we’ve had enough of blankets that fail to add any extra warmth to the situation.

Enter: the Faux Fur Throw from John Lewis.

A throw so popular, it has racked up an abundance of gushing, five-star reviews and is a current John Lewis best-seller.

In fact, as we were browsing, 61 other people were looking to buy one as well.

Why we love it:

It feels sumptuous and glamorous, and adds an extra weight that feels both calming and cosy all at once.

It doesn’t wear like lots of faux fur products do and so wont end up looking shabby in just a matter of weeks. Plus, it seriously upgrades our Netflix nights-in.

The throw is available in four different colours (mocha, white, grey and fawn) so you’ll be able to find one to match your decor, no matter what colour you painted your walls during the last lockdown.

Yes, at £95, it may be a bit of a decadent purchase, but if you think of cost per use it will have pretty much paid for itself by March.

What the reviews say:

With over 70 five star reviews, the throw certainly hasn’t disappointed:

  • “I bought this and a knitted throw for my mum to choose from for Christmas. This one won, really luxurious and I would like one for myself. Deep pile, soft backing and a good weight.”

  • “I bought this throw off the back of the reviews and wow, just wow. It's always difficult buying online but I've not been disappointed. It's thick and very soft. It's lovely and heavy and plenty big enough.”

  • “Looks good. Cat liked it even better - made himself comfortable before I got the chance! Good quality and weight and so soft and snuggly.”

  • “Daren't reply too glowingly before I order another one! Ok, so it's thick, thick, thick. Secondly, I bought fawn, it looks exquisite. Finally, I see it is washable. So I am now going to order the darker one too. Oh, and ps my gorgeous Bijon dog loves it.”

  • “Very pleased with this throw. Love the colour accents and the quality of faux fur is excellent. Looks great against the sofa and doesn't shed onto clothes.”

  • “Lovely soft throw, has a luxurious look and feel, and manages to avoid that overly synthetic shine that many faux fur throws have.”
