No matter the time of year, a well-placed throw blanket can ward off the chill or provide an immediate haven for snuggling up. Read on for one we found in the neon brights so prevalent this spring.

Listen up: It's spring. Which means in addition to streamlining wardrobes, dusting under your furniture, and slamming open the windows, it's time to rethink any ratty home accessories that have been loved to pieces over the preceding winter. We're looking at you, throw blankets.

And what better way to celebrate the vernal season than with oh-so-2013 shades of neon? For that, we recommend a new release from Gorman. The Australian brand went to Melbourne wool textile manufacturer St Albans to produce a capsule collection of three mohair blankets.

The Check It Out throw is a striated plaid on a white boucle background, jolted with bright pink or neon yellow. The Picnic throw is a more intense colorblock of kelly green or fluorescent coral, while Carnivale is an all-over color right with fringed edges. All are available for $249 Australian (plus $25 for international shipping) at Gorman.
