At this time of year when the nights start to draw in and the evenings turn colder, what is better than curling up in a soft, heavy throw by the fire? Throws and blankets not only provide a pleasing aesthetic but are perfect for just snuggling up inside when you want to feel cosy and warm. They also add colour and texture whether you place them over a sofa or your favourite chair.
As there are so many to choose from, we have picked our twelve favourite throws and blankets that not only look great but are thick and warm for those chilly nights:
Jasper Stone Luxury Knitted Throw – was £80.00 now £40.00
This gorgeous soft and chunky throw from Jasper Stone goes to show that you don’t need to spend a fortune on throws and blankets. Available in two colours, charcoal and stone (featured), there are also coordinating cushions to complete the look.
Zig Zag Wool Throw – Buttercup Yellow – £49.99
Made in Britain, this buttercup yellow throw is ideal for just draping over a chair or sofa to add a touch of bright colour. It is made from pure wool so be careful when washing, you must hand wash in cold water to prevent it shrinking.
Madam Stoltz Handwoven Cotton Throw – £72.00
An unusual throw here that features a Danish design in black and white and is super-soft to the touch. Lovely fringing completes the look and this would compliment a bedroom beautifully.
