Material Matters: Choose 100% Pure Wool for the Warmest Blanket

When it comes to wool throws and blankets, quality is key. You want to make sure you're getting the real deal, and nothing less than 100% pure wool will do. Not only will woollen blankets be the warmest option, but this natural fibre is also hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant – ideal for anyone with allergies or sensitive skin.


Mmmm, Merino: Which Wool Blankets are Softest?

Spring nights can be unpredictable, with temperatures fluctuating from warm to chilly. The solution is layering. The best base layer for your bed is a blanket made from merino wool. Merino wool fibres are long and fine, creating blankets that are extra soft, smooth and lightweight. Merino wool strands also have crimps which trap air, regulating your body temperature and wicking away moisture. So, you can sleep soundly and keep your bedroom warm without heating.


Size Selection: Pick the Right Size Blanket for Your Bed

When it comes to size, think about how much of your bed you want your blanket to cover. A large wool blanket is suitable for a double bed, while an XL or king size blanket is great for larger beds where you’ll want more generous drape down the sides. Remember that the depth of your mattress, as well as its width, will affect how the blanket looks when it’s laid on top. One quick tip is to cut a piece of string to the same length as the blanket and lay this on the bed to get an idea of how much of the bed it will cover.
