The deterioration caused by constant seating and lying on the sofa clothing can be minimized or reduced if you cover the seat with sofa throws. This is very beneficial because it is apparently a lot cheaper to replace sofa throws than to have your sofa upholstered.
Aside from protection from wear and tear, a sofa throw also helps in protecting your sofa from stains or blemishes caused by accidental food and beverage spills. These tarnishes and dirt is a lot easier to clean in the throws than in the sofa itself. This idea also especially applies to pet owners whose dogs and cats like to sit or lay on their sofa. Using a giant sofa throw as protective sheet to your sofa is a great way to keep animal hair or fur pets of the seat, which could otherwise cause allergic reactions to visitors. If you get a washable wool blanket, even better- as then you can keep reusing the blanket whilst keeping everything clean!

Blanket for additional warmth
Throws are essentially blankets whose main function is to provide warmth. Giant sofa throws can add warmth both literally and symbolically to your place.

The throw can serve as a blanket for couples to snuggle outside in a cold romantic moment.

We recommend a nice wool blanket for camping due to it's thick insulating properties.
Throws also add warmth to a place symbolically. Adding throws in your sofa help to make it more homey and welcoming to friends and families visiting your home. As oppose to furniture in the office which can be comfy yet stiff and rigid, the warmth provided by throws makes your living room engenders an open-hearted ambiance and inviting atmosphere for friends and visitors to relax and feel at home in your house.
