Sort Your Holiday Shopping with our Gift Guide

November 28, 2017 Tags: , , , No Comments

If you are beginning to think about (or panic about) buying your Christmas or Holiday season gifts, we’ve got just the thing. Here is our simple guide to the perfect present: a woollen throw. Whether you are shopping for your mother or your teenage son, we’ll show you why one of our throws will make a great gift.

All our throws are made from top quality wool, which means they look and feel luxurious, and perfectly treat-y. They will last for years, keeping your loved one cosy and warm for many more seasons to come, which makes a wool throw a great alternative to disposable items with no longevity.

For a parent

Finding the right gift for a parent can be tricky. But whatever their age or stage in life, they will appreciate something sumptuous for their home, and something that will also keep them warm during the colder months. For a dad who likes to go fishing or camping, or putting his feet up in front of the game on a Sunday afternoon, our Luigi throw is a great choice. Made from a soft blend of wool and alpaca fibres, it has a timelessly classic plaid pattern that echoes nostalgic tartan rugs and country living. Or treat your mum to one of these exquisite cashmere Everest throws in an elegant herringbone weave. Perfect for snuggling up on the sofa, draping over shoulders or legs on cool summer evenings outside, or bringing along on picnics with friends.

For a teenager

If your teen has left home and started college, a decent wool throw is a brilliantly versatile gift. They can sling it over their beds for some extra winter warmth without having to splurge on heating bills, or take it to festivals in the summer where it can double as a nighttime blanket and rug for lounging on in the sunshine. Wool needs less washing than other fabrics, so this is a good low-maintenance present for teenagers who may spend more time socialising than doing the laundry. Choose something neutral that will work with whatever room they move to, like one of these supersoft Paula wool throws in grey stripes.

For a grandparent

Tuck your grandparent up safe in the knowledge that a wool throw will help regulate their body temperature. Older people can often feel chills even on milder days, so having a cosy blanket handy is always useful. Go for something classic and simple, like our plait-designed merino Alessandra throw, or add a splash of colour to their day with something bold and patterned.

For a partner

Gift the man in your life a gorgeous baby alpaca wool throw to snuggle up under with a glass of wine and a box set. Quiet time spent together can be hard to find amidst the busyness of life, but you can show how much you value cosy, simple moments with a present like this charcoal Bella throw. For her, how about a super-fine, luxurious cashmere throw? Choose a muted tone or natural colour to make sure it works with a range of bedlinen or sofa cushions.

There you have it, holiday gifts all wrapped up. No stress, no fuss and for many years of pleasure. Happy shopping!

Creative Christmas Decorations Made from Wool Yarn

December 22, 2011 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

Being interior decorator in my head and heart I always enjoy pre-Christmas period, when shop browsing can be made and new Christmas decorations purchased. Each year I have a concept of home decor in my mind and then look for items to implement it. This year, wool yarn Christmas decorations attracted my attention (maybe because of the promise I made for myself to write this blog :))

The idea came to me when I was examining one of those gorgeous wool stockings to hang on fireplace. The tag said it was made of 100% wool. Ok, I thought, what else made of natural wool can I find and put together a theme out of it? Wool jackets, wool coats, wool cardigans and even wool pants are the most usual products made of wool yarn. Are there any wool decorations?

So, take a look at my findings:

TOP10 Most Interesting Christmas Gifts from Wool Shops

December 6, 2011 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Do you remember your childhood Christmas gifts? Do you feel nostalgic about them? I certainly do. Take my grandparents’ gifts. They were always predictable :). My grandparents lived in a village nearby, had a big farm with cows, hens, and sheep, and so the gifts they gave were always something produced in the farm. Usually, wool – wool socks, wool gloves, wool coat or even felt wool doll. I remember we – me and my sister – felt a bit annoyed at those repetitive and not-from-the-shop gifts. Today we probably would think differently :)

Having these memories and seeing this Christmas hype everywhere, I just thought – what wool gifts are there today, what I would give to my family and friends if I decided wool is the theme of this year’s holidays.

So here they are – cute, stylish, practical gifts made of wool yarn, felt wool, or cotton wool mix. I found them in wool shops I love and visit frequently. Enjoy!
