We love yoga blankets! Yoga blankets, Mexican yoga blankets, cotton yoga blankets or just a meditation shawl are the must-have item for every yogi, providing the essential cushioning you need to perfect your shoulder stand without gasping for breath. They lift the stress away from your joints as you relax into child’s pose. They provide extra lift for your spine when you’re not as bendy like a pretzel but you still want to touch your toes. They keep you warm and snug whilst you’re relaxing in savasana. And they also work wonderfully as a meditation pillow, extra support for prenatal yoga or even as something you throw over your mat to add a touch of the natural. To help guide you effortlessly through the buying process, we’ve gathered together a short guide to help you find the best yoga blanket available on Amazon. These include everything from polar fleece yoga blankets to 100% organic cotton yoga blankets in the UK and everything in between, all the colours of the rainbow and every size, weight and texture available.

Don’t allow the fact that this yoga blanket is made from fleece put you off, especially if you’re looking for a yoga prop to help you achieve those trickier postures. This high-quality, warm and soft blanket is everything you need (and a bit more!)
It’s just the right thickness, it’s extra-long so you can feel nice and warm and it works wonderfully as an extra cushioning layer between you and the yoga mat. Unlike many other brands of fleece yoga blanket, this one is non-piling, lightweight at less than 1kg and comes in such beautiful colours. Perfect for travel, home and regular use.

Extra-long for those taller people
Lightweight and easy to store
Not 100% natural fibres
Created from a blend of 60% polyester and 40% cotton, these Mexican style yoga blankets will add a touch of the ethnic to your yoga practice.
Thick, comforting and durable, it works fantastically when you need extra warmth during savasana, and also works really well as a yoga bolster when rolled up tightly. I love the design of this one and often use mine at home as a throw or when we’re outdoors and need somewhere to sit for our picnic.
Available in red or blue
Beautiful pattern and simple colour options
Thick and warm
Does tend to shed at first
Slightly heavier, so not the best choice if you travel
Oooh!! It’s not often I get excited about a cotton yoga blanket, but this one really does it for me!
As an eco-conscious girl, I love the fact that this one is all-natural, made from 100% cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and has been created in the birthplace of yoga- India (under non-exploitative working conditions).
Best of all, the manufacturer has really paid attention to what works in a yoga blanket and ensured that the hems are thin enough to allow it to lie flat when folded, making it an awesome yoga prop too. At a whopping 230cm, it’s perfect for men, those who are slightly taller or those who just like more blanket for their buck!
Available in purple and natural
Great value for money
100% GOTS cotton
Can shed slightly
What can I say? Simply the best yoga blanket.
Not only is it made from 100% organic cotton and handmade in India (according to high environmental and working standards), it’s also toxin-free, extra large and beautifully comforting.
Weighing in at just 1 kg, this cotton yoga blanket is also perfect for travel, will keep you snuggly warm and cosy during practice or at home, and it also makes a stylish addition to anyone’s yoga bag. The only problem is, which of the rich warming colours should you choose? Hmmm….
Available in cornflower, nature, aubergine, Bordeaux.
100% organic cotton
