Our five best blankets for winter
With temperatures dropping and winter setting in across Australia, it’s lovely to brighten up the home (and heart) with warm blankets in a stunning range of patterns and colours, from stylish neutrals to uplifting shades. Our thick blankets are handwoven in India and warm and soft like wool. Best of all, they’re also eco-friendly blankets, recycling up to 300 plastic bottles for every single throw rug.
Despite their delicious softness and devilish good looks, these eco-rugs are also machine-washable, stain resistant, and water resistant – meaning that when the weather warms up again, you can even take them outside to use as a picnic blanket. The revolutionary fabric means that moths won't eat them, dust mites won't nest in them, and spills like red wine will wash out like new! Basically, these gorgeous blankets make the ultimate couch throws this winter.
So find yourself a patch of winter sun, curl up with a tea and a home reno magazine, and snuggle under one of these five best blankets for winter.
1. Diamond Teal Blanket
One of our most popular throw rugs, the Diamond Teal Blanket manages to be both sophisticated and fresh, with its pale teal colour, soft white tassels, and understated diamond pattern. Indoors or outdoors, bed or couch – this beauty can go anywhere with you and lighten up any room.
2. Chinchilla Herringbone Blanket
This classic herringbone design in a silvery-beige colour is your perfect neutral: eminently stylish and magnificently versatile. One of our heavier weaves, it looks as gorgeous as a bedspread as it does over the arm of a leather couch, and because it features grey, creamy beige, and white tones, the Chinchilla Herringbone Blanket matches a wide array of colour schemes.
3. Lavender Diamond Blanket
Rather than the traditional ‘lavender purple’, our Lavender Diamond Blanket is a lovely soft blue with purple tones. As such, this sofa throw is an absolutely stunning addition to any light and bright space, and works particularly well in a home with coastal, French Provincial, or Hamptons styling.
4. Navy Herringbone Blanket
In this soft and cosy winter blanket, the classic Herringbone design is modernised in a glorious deep navy that enriches any room. The Navy Herringbone Blanket is our heavier and warmest weave, so this is a good choice for an extra bed blanket or as a sofa throw to hide under on a cold winter’s night.
5. Aqua Oxford Stripe Blanket
Who doesn’t crave a bit of aquamarine in the middle of a grey winter? Our bright Aqua Oxford Stripe conjures up images of Caribbean seas and sugar-white sands, all smartened up with a stylish Oxford stripe. Zesty and happy, this happy green couch throw will bring a bit of sunshine into your home. And it’s the first one you’ll want to take on a picnic, camping – or even to the beach.
