Keeping warm in the cold winter months is something we will all be trying to do.
And with energy bills continuing to rise, many of us will be searching for other ways to stay warm rather than simply switching on the central heating every time we start to feel the chill.
Blankets are a cost effective way to help stay warm, and here at Allure Bath Fashions we have a range of throw blankets you can incorporate into your living space to help keep your body temperature as high as possible, even if the temperature outside is plummeting.
In this blog, we'll guide you through the different blankets that we have, and how each one could be added effortlessly to your home to help keep warm this winter.
Choose a Weighted Blanket to help you through the winter nights
Do you find it hard to get a good night of sleep during the winter? If so, a weighted blanket could be just what you need.
Acting like a warming, tight hug, a weighted blanket's goal is to help you relax, allowing a fuller night of sleep than you are used to.
The pressure applied helps with the release of serotonin and endorphins, chemicals that our body naturally produces to help us feel calm and relaxed.
Not only will it add an extra layer of warmth during the winter, our Slumber Weighted Blankets have a TOG rating of 2.5, meaning that it can be comfortably used all year round without the risk of overheating.
With a breathable microfibre cover, our weighted blankets are not just for the winter but will help to keep you warm nonetheless.

Choose a Waffle Throw for their insulating properties
If you are on the look out for an added layer of warmth for your sleep space, a modern Waffle Throw might be the best option for you.
With a deep waffle weave made from 100% cotton, our Waffle Blankets are sure to prevent heat loss and retain warmth, providing adequate insulation depending on body and atmospheric temperature.
Because cotton is wonderfully soft and breathable, it makes the perfect material for throw blankets. It's cosy and warming on a cold and bitter winter morning, while maintaining an airiness, ideal as the day warms up.
These throw blankets are also perfect for a king size bed, so you enjoy the comforts in the main bedroom, as well as the living room if you are looking for an extra layer of warmth.
A thick Banjara Throw will keep you extra warm this winter
Many of us will be on the lookout for warm winter blankets to help us battle the colder months.
That's why our Banjara Traveller Throw might be the perfect option for you.
With a thick feel at 520GSM, this blanket is one of the heaviest you will find, allowing you to wrap up warm to retain your body heat.
It is also extremely versatile: the beautiful and colourful design would make a welcome addition in the bedroom, the living room as a sofa throw, or in the conservatory as we all look to wrap up and get snuggly in some extra layers.
Finished with tassels, this decorative throw is a must have if you're searching for a style as well as cosiness.
Stay warm in winter even when you're relaxing
Sofa days are common for many of us, especially in the winter months when the weather starts to turn and we look to make the most of our home comforts.
And if you're looking for a blanket to snuggle up on the couch with, our Audley Herringbone Throws will make the perfect addition to your home.
As well as having a striking chevron design, they also have the added benefit of being perfect for use as a loose cover for a single seat sofa, single bed or chair.
They are also great for snuggling up with friends or family on film nights or lazy mornings in the house.
Made from 100% cotton, these herringbone throws are soft and breathable, and are ideal for adding a cosy touch when you're having a snug day in front of the television.
Available in 4 neutral colours, the Audley Chevron Throws are perfect for every season.
Perfect for adding style and character to your home
Alongside a throw being used to keep warm, they can also be used to add colour and style to your room.
If you're hosting for guests, perhaps over Christmas, it is a great idea to keep a selection of throw blankets close by, as an extra warm touch as you spend your evenings unwinding on the sofa.
You can have them draped across the back of the sofa or chair for easy accessibility.
Or perhaps consider a little basket by the side of the couch, filled with an array of blankets ready to grab for when the evening gets chilly.
