Wearable blankets for getting out and about

A blanket scarf is the ultimate winter accessory for those who feel the cold, but still want to venture into the chilly outside world. We have a whole range of colours and styles to match your thickest winter coat and there are a variety of ways to wear blanket scarves from classic pashmina style to different belted wraps. Try experimenting with ways of folding and you'll find lots of new ways to wear your wool blanket and keep extra cosy.

Our oversized blanket scarves are made to be extra snuggly and offer multiple layers of warmth for even the coldest days. They’re easy to chuck on when you step into blustery outdoor weather and can be quickly removed when you come back into stuffy heated indoor spaces too. 

We've also been busy creating our beautiful new wearable blanket wraps, which will be available in early December 2022. Choose from six different colours and throw on these wraps any time you need an extra layer and don't want to turn the heating up. Outdoors, a wearable blanket can be worn similarly to a shawl, poncho, ruana or cape. They are all made in Yorkshire from 100% soft and light merino lambswool. Finally, blankets you can wear that are actually stylish! Visit our new wearable blanket collection and sign-up to be notified the moment your favourite colour is available to order.

Our lambswool scarves are a more lightweight option for those who prefer something a little more slimline, but they still offer the natural warmth of wool.

Wearable blankets for working from home

Post-pandemic, more of us than ever are now working from home, but staying sat hunched over your desk for hours on end can lead to you feeling the cold. If you want to keep your arms free for typing, our armchair blankets are perfectly sized for popping over your lap to keep draughts at bay.

Warm up and cheer up your WFH space by opting for a Lingonberry Red or Buttercup yellow throw. Alternatively bring all the colours into your home with a Rainbow Stripe Herringbone Armchair Throw – guaranteed to brighten up stormy skies.

Our super soft premium merino lambswool throws are also a great option as a working from home wearable blanket. They are slightly finer, and as a result a little less bulky, so they can be easily worn around your shoulders if you prefer to fully cocoon yourself in super-soft wool.

If you need to stay looking professional for those office zoom calls, our oversized blanket scarves look smart when worn as a traditional scarf, or they can be folded out into a blanket wrap and worn around your back when the camera’s off. Our new wearable blanket wraps are also ideal for throwing on while working at home as they won't fall off your shoulders even while typing, and they're also made from light-yet-warm merino lambswool.

Wearable blankets for cold nights

If you’re trying to keep your central heating usage to a minimum, freezing winter evenings can often prove a bit of a challenge. Prepare to get super cuddly on the sofa with our XL family-sized blankets. Measuring a whopping 155 x 230cm our extra large blankets are big enough for the whole family (and the dog) to wear and snuggle under together.
