As London approaches the coldest week of winter I have selected my five favourite cashmere blankets to snuggle up and keep cosy.
The Uyuni Cashmere Blanket is one of the finest cashmere blankets from the large Urbanara collection. Beautifully soft to the touch, this luxurious fibre is sourced from cashmere goats in Inner Mongolia, where the supplier carefully monitors the production process from start to finish, ensuring only the highest quality material for the Uyuni. The blanket displays an intricate, two-toned diamond motif with a delicate ‘eyelash’ fringe along the width to complete its look. Available in 140 x 200 cm, with a choice of three colours.
This blanket is from the incredibly luxurious featherweight-cashmere collection. Whisper-soft against your skin, it features a stunning all-over ribbed texture and is gorgeously finished with a deep, double-knit border. Presented in a suitably beautiful white box, it also makes a wonderful gift to treasure. The double-sided, ribbed cushion cover with a lovely plain-knit envelope closure finishes the look perfectly.
The ultimate luxury blanket from the Cashmere kings, Johnsons of Elgins. This versatile blanket is reversible to give a bright (Sky blue) and light (Ecru) appearance, depending on your mood. 190 x 140 cm, it is currently reduced in the new year sale.
The ultimate and undisputed mark of luxury, to label this blanket as soft simply doesn’t do it justice! In deliciously new, bright Brora blends there is a shade to suit everyone, I love the tangy Pumpkin colour. This piece is an investment you won’t regret, a beautiful woven blanket made from the finest Scottish cashmere.
This soft cashmere blanket has a sophisticated tonal check pattern and fringing at both ends. From the designer British brand it is as indulgent as you can get and will last you a lifetime.
