Guide to throws and blankets

What's not to love about getting nice and cozy under a beautiful throw or blanket? It is one of life's simple pleasures. 

Not only that, but throws and blankets can be more versatile than you think.

They can bring an added layer of warmth, a splash of colour or some added texture to any room in the home.

In this blog we'll take a look at how you can use throws and blankets in your home, as well as what products we have to offer.

Blanket or throw: is there a difference?

Blankets and throws are extremely similar, and generally do the same job: keeping you warm. Throws are just one type of blanket. 

One of the main distinctions between a blanket and a throw is their size. Blankets are usually designed with bed sizes in mind, much like our Sedona Waffle Blankets.

We offer both a single size, measuring 175 x 225cm and a double size, measuring 225 x 250cm, ensuring we have the perfect fit whatever size bed you have. 

You can incorporate blankets into your bedding in order to add some texture, or simply for an added layer of warmth in the winter months.

One of the features that makes our Waffle Blankets special is the fact that they are perfect to use all year round. 

The deep waffle weave ensures the blanket is extremely soft, retains warmth and provides just adequate insulation depending on body and atmospheric temperature.

If you're looking for a co-ordinated look, add our colour-matched cotton Waffle Cushion Covers to your bedroom to give a chic, modern feel.

Throws tend to be smaller in size and can be used right around the home. They can offer a theme or give some shape to your room. 

One other difference between the two is that blankets are usually made out of one large piece of fabric, whereas throws can sometimes include blending and knitted components too.

Take our Marl Throws, that are a blend of acrylic and polyester. This gorgeous throw features a melange style design, and provides the perfect aesthetic to wide range of decor.

This throw's dual colour effect is achieved through the combination of two different colour yarns in the thread that is used to create the fabric.

The end result is a stunning marled effect that is guaranteed to become a new favourite addition to your living space.

You can always rely on cotton

We have a range of throws crafted using 100% natural cotton.

The cotton fibres used to expertly craft our Audley Chevron Throws give a soft, breathable and durable feel.

This blanket is perfect for use as a loose cover for a single seat sofa, single bed or chair and is great for snuggling up with friends or family on film nights.

They also prove to be a popular gift idea, arriving ribbon tied for that added touch of luxury.

If you're looking to add a splash of colour to your living space, without drastically changing the decor, our Bahamas Cotton Rainbow Throw might be the best option for you.

Bahamas Ombre Rainbow Cotton Throw

This soft and comfy throw has a stunning ombre rainbow design and will provide a modern look, wherever you choose to use it.

Both our Audley Chevron Throws and Bahamas Rainbow Throws feature a tasseled fringe, a characteristic usually reserved for throws rather than blankets.
