There is good reason why these blankets are a hit each year – they’re stylish, can transform your interior instantly, and of course they’ll keep you and your family cosy and warm. Here’s what you need to know about our winter warming best sellers…
1. Basket Knit Throw
A basket weave knit is a timeless classic, characterised by the unique knit style that creates a ‘checkerboard’ pattern. ‘Throws’ tend to be smaller (127cm x 152cm) in size than blankets, so they work perfectly as added warmth for relaxing on the sofa or across the legs while sitting at your desk! A basket knit throw that has a Sherpa reverse, which is a warm woolly pile, are particularly great for extra warmth. Charcoals and naturals are great neutral colours that work with most interior looks year after year.
2. Jacquard Wool Blend Blanket
Wool blend blankets with Jacquard designs are a great buy, and they look and feel luxurious. Use jacquard wool blend blankets (220cm x 240cm) in bedrooms when the temperature drops for additional warmth or to update the look of your slumber sanctuary. Beige or blue are perfect base colours to lighten things up!
3. Reversible Printed Fleece Blanket
Geometric prints add a contemporary feel to modernise your interiors, and reversible blankets can double your looks instantly! Simply flip them over and you’ll transform the style and mood of your space in a flash. Dual layer blankets are super cosy for chilly nights, and blankets (220cm x 240cm) are the perfect size for queen size beds, doubles and singles, movie time on the sofa or just double wrapping yourself in. With four fashion designs at a great value price, you can achieve four looks and update every room in the house.
4. Reversible Plush Blanket
Everyone loves the feel of silky, ultra-soft fabrics; so Reversible plush blankets are a crowd favourite! The good news is that these blankets come in two on-trend designs. Revamp the look and feel of your bedroom and living spaces with the contemporary bold black and white Luka design or the Deco design, a teal geometric print. These provide total warmth, comfort and style. Use these blankets on beds (220cm x 240cm) or to wrap yourself and the family up on the couch.
5. Coral Jacquard Blankets
Another crowd pleaser thanks to their soft and cosy texture is Coral Jacquard blankets. The classic Coral Jacquard blanket (220cm x 240cm) comes in fashion colours and looks fab’ on beds, either fully covering the bed or folded along the foot. They can also be folded and placed on sofa seats in winter for an inviting ‘homely feeling’. Choose aqua or berry for vibrancy and statement pieces, or cream for classic sophistication.
