Product Spotlight: Wool Throw Blankets/Toast



As winter is fast approaching, there is nothing more essential than a great, cozy throw blanket to wrap yourself in, throw across the sofa or curl up with in bed. I am always on the look out for a new, warm throw blanket and usually my favorites are mens-wear inspired patterns, cashmere, wool or plaid. A great source for a selection of comfy blankets is Toast, and the name says it all... wrap your self in one of these and you will be very toasty!

I love this beautiful Welsh Tapestry Bedcover. Not exactly a throw blanket, but I am sure it will do the trick! Made of undyed British wool, this cover was woven on a loom in the few surviving Welsh woolen mills. A vintage copy.

Nothing beats a classic plaid check cashmere throw. Love this color combo!

I am a big fan of throw blankets too! I love to curl up on the sofa by the fireplace with a good book, a glass of wine and my favorite cashmere throw. I just bought a new one I found on line. I saw on your website you like to check out new products. Try looking at http://www.elegantlinenspc.com/Cashmere-Throws.htm.
I bought the Criss Cross pattern, it’s very elegant! I think you would like it too.
I tend to go more for solids than the patterns just because of my décor. But in the end it’s the cozy factor you want no matter the color.
