How do you use your wool throw or wool blanket?
As I pack and send out our lovely wool throws and wool blankets to the 4 corners of the United Kingdom, I do sometimes start wondering how they will be used. Sometimes my customers send me lovely photos of their new throws showing them in use on their sofas, favourite chair and beds.
So that got me thinking – how do you use your wool throw?
Do you use a throw to hide an old chair?
There is one old sofa in my lounge which I don’t like, but my husband is attached to it. So instead I have hidden the old fabric with a couple of wool throws to try and cover the fabric I don’t like! The added bonus of covering the sofa with a cosy wool throw, is that its not only pleasing on the eye, but it's much nicer to sit on and I love wrapping up in a throw when its chilly.
Many of my customers send in amazing photos where they’ve used their new wool throw as soft furnishing to complete a room. Adding a colourful wool throw or wool blanket to your home can transform the look and feel of that space. I love adding yellow or orange to add a pop of colour, or a pretty pink or sage green wool throw to add calm and peace.
Snuggle up into.
You can’t beat a night in, snuggled up with a soft wool throw, a glass of wine and a good book. Whether that’s at home or away, I always take a throw with me for chilly evenings. Our J.J. Textile wool blankets or swedish wool throws, are perfect for this.
As an extra layer on the bed.
Not only can a throw look good during the day, but they are practical at night if you need an extra layer on the bed. Wool blankets and wool throws will keep you at just the right temperature, Wool is breathable and our merino wool blankets are perfect regardless of the weather or time of year.
As a dog bed or adopted by your pet.
You might be surprised to hear that some throws have gone to be used as dog beds. I’m less surprised as my 2 cats are always looking for a throw to adopt.
In the garden.
In the summer – I quite often just put a throw on the grass, where I can then relax under a shady tree. Wool throws and wool blankets are also great to leave on the back on your guests chairs when your dining outside in the summer.
In the car.
Always handy to keep a wool throw in the car. Then it can be used for impromptu picnics on days out, or stargazing.
We have supplied many glamping, air B&B’s and boutiques with wool throws.
