As the temperatures begin to fall and fuel bills rise, now is the time to maximise the coziness of our homes. In addition to insulating as much as possible and limiting our use of heating where we can, an easy way to stay warmer on a chilly Autumn evening is to curl up under a real wool throw.
Why choose wool?
Unlike synthetic fabrics wool keeps you warm without overheating, thanks to its temperature-regulating qualities. This makes it far more comfortable. It is also a more sustainable option than synthetic fabrics as it’s biodegradable and doesn’t shed harmful fibres. Wool also requires less frequent washing or cleaning, which saves water and energy in your home.
Due to its inherent strength wool outlasts many other fabrics. Their natural durability makes woollen textiles a cost-effective addition to your interior. Wool is also dirt-repellant, making it an excellent option for homes with pets or young children. Our wool throws are designed to look good and perform brilliantly for years, reducing waste and making a long term solution for home textiles.
Here’s our edit of wool throws to suit every style and add some warmth and texture to your home this season.
Meet our Paula throw- 100% wool and 100% luxury
In four minimalist colors that will work with every interior style, the Paula wool throw brings a soft, luxe aesthetic to any space. With delicate fringing and crafted from pure wool, it’s exceptional value and sumptuously cozy. We love to use these on top of a plump feather-and-down winter duvet with a set of pure linen bedlinen for a snug night’s sleep.
Roberto throws bring a pop of color
Our Roberto wool throws not only offer the warmth and comfort of pure wool, they also feature dual colorways so you can switch up the mood. Choose from one of ten gorgeous colors, from subtle Moss Green or Indigo to Rust and Stone blue, there’s a shade to match your taste. The reverse side has a paler knit, so you can use this versatile throw in the summer when you want paler tones, or in different rooms around the home.
For pattern-lovers, try Luigi
Stylish chequered patterns make our Luigi throws a great option for adding interest and texture to your sofa or bed. Made from 70% wool and 30% alpaca these blankets are meltingly soft and perfect for winter hibernating. In Terracotta, Aqua, Indigo and Canyon Rose they add some elegant color without being too bold. And when the seasons turn they make perfect picnic blankets too, ensuring you get optimal use from just one piece.
Whichever throw you choose, it will bring an instant warmth and charm to your home. And because you’re buying from a family-run brand you’ll be supporting small-scale, sustainable businesses as well as reducing your impact on the planet by using wool rather than manmade alternatives.
