Many people turn to throws as a cosy addition to the home during the cold winter months, but we think they make for wonderful home accessories all year round. From picnic blankets to decorating blankets for the living room and bedrooms, throws have a wide range of stylish and practical uses.
Get cosy at home
There’s nothing better than wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket on a chilly day, and our 100% Wool Weave Up Travel Rugs are the perfect throw to do exactly that. The soft, natural texture feels cosy against the skin so you can wrap it around your shoulders or drape it over the knees for some extra warmth..
Throw a summer picnic
Wool throws make for brilliant picnic blankets because wool is both naturally durable and antibacterial, which means you don’t have to wash them too often when they – inevitably! – end up covered in crumbs. A good shake is often enough. Our Wool Weave Up Plain Travel Rug makes the perfect picnic blanket because it is about as large as a double bed, giving you plenty of room to lay out your delicious picnic and sit the whole family around for your alfresco lunch.
Be prepared for every journey
When you stash a handy throw in your car you’ll be prepared for anything! You can use a car blanket for spontaneous picnic stops, staying warm during unexpected cold snaps, or wrapping up in should your vehicle break down and you have to wait by the side of the road for recovery. Laying a throw over the back seats could also help you to protect the car’s upholstery or simply create a cosy and comforting atmosphere for long journeys.
Embrace interior design blankets
Blankets allow you to incorporate new colours and textures into a room without major redecoration. Wondering how to style a throw? You could drape it across a sofa or armchair, or fold a couple of throws into a stylish wicker basket to keep them organised and within easy reach.
Add some style to the bedroom
You can lay a throw across the bottom of a bed to contrast stylishly against a plain duvet cover. Plus, as an added bonus, it will offer you with an extra layer of warmth on cold nights. Our weave-up travel rugs are always limited edition and so have a look now for the latest colours to match your current interior design.
