Jessica Harding By Jessica HardingSenior Creative Buyer

At this time of year, sofa throws are one of your living room’s most giving accessories. Providing visual warmth as much as tactile softness, no home should be without at least one (or five). From wool blankets to fur throws, the options available are bountiful.

To help make your shortlist, our resident Senior Creative Buyer Jessica Harding has compiled her nine worthiest contenders with winter warmer status.

Best Wool Throws & Blankets

A wool blanket may be one of the most comforting, but it is also spun from one of nature’s most breathable fibres. Wrap any of these around you and, snug though you’ll be, there’s a surprising lightness and loftiness that means you’ll never want to shrug them off.
