Old Man Winter is knocking on our doors!  The crisp, bright days of fall are sadly coming to a close, with the dreary days of November rapidly approaching on the horizon.  Luckily, re-uniting with winter favorites always brings a little spark of joy and brightness even as the days get darker and shorter.  Just like you would reconnect with a special cozy sweater or pair of warm slippers, it's time to bring back all your warmest blankets to snuggle in!  

If you already have some Bates items in your collection, then you'll know our premium cotton blankets last season after season with the proper care.  But if you're looking for some new options this winter, or want to add another heavyweight American-made blanket to your home, here's a list of our 5 favorite Bates styles for the cold season.


A true classic, the George Washington's Choice blanket is one of our heaviest blankets.  It's thick, warm, and comes in several color options.  If you're looking for winter bedding blankets, shop our bedding sizes (available in Twin, Full/Queen, and King). George Washington's Choice is also available in throw sizes, and makes a perfect heavyweight throw blanket to pair with your favorite chair or couch.


A fairly new addition to the Bates collection, our Lattice blanket is sure to become a winter favorite.  This woven cotton blanket has a unique, cushy texture that makes it extra cuddly while still being breathable.  Pictured in pure, snowy white, the Lattice Blanket also comes in Natural if you want a warmer tone.


If texture is your thing, a heavyweight terry option might be for you!  Our Spirit of America throw truly lives up to its name.  Like the rest of our products, this beautiful and nostalgic cotton throw is manufactured right here in the USA by a small, passionate team of family and friends.  Spirit of America is also available as a bedspread.


If you're looking for something a little more modern to cover you on cold nights, our Cathedral blanket could be your choice.  Sleek while still being warm and sporting a timeless chevron pattern, this woven blanket is incredibly versatile.  Buy a bedding size if you'd like an extra layer while you're sleeping, or grab a throw size to wrap yourself in while watching a movie.


Bring some nature into your home with the Evergreen throw's year-round foliage!  This decorative but cozy matelassé throw will spruce up your home for the holidays and beyond.  Although technically one of our "mid-weight" cotton throws, the Evergreen throw is still one of our top picks for cold season.  Sometimes you just need a little greenery to get you through those long winter nights.

Whether you're looking for a thick winter bedding blanket or a heavy cotton throw blanket, Bates has lots of cold season classics to pick from.  We hope you enjoyed this list of our 5 favorites!
