Notes "A blanket is intended for use on a bed. A blanket typically comes in cotton, wool and even a light down. It is used for soft texture and added warmth, in addition to a decorative comforter... Blankets are often crafted and sold for practical daily use rather than decoration."[ http://blog.cozytownlinens.com/general/the-difference-between-a-blanket-and-a-throw-9/21/2016]
