Cashmere blankets and throws
Why invest in a cashmere blanket?
Silky soft, incredibly warm, and absolutely gorgeous, cashmere blankets and cashmere throws are the ultimate luxury home accessory. Whether you’re shopping for a pure cashmere blanket or cashmere throw for yourself or you’re looking for a cashmere blanket or cashmere throw as the perfect gift, there’s no looking past sumptuous, pure cashmere as an option for your home.
Cashmere is one of the finest fibres on the planet. Each of the fibres in a cashmere blanket or cashmere throw is super fine and silky to the touch, when high-grade cashmere is woven, the result is an intensely soft, silky, lightweight fabric that is perfect for a luxury cashmere blanket or cashmere throw, and even soft enough for use as baby blankets.
What makes a cashmere blanket so warm?
A pure cashmere blanket or pure cashmere throw will provide unbelievable warmth thanks to its special heating and temperature-regulating properties. These luxury cashmere blankets or cashmere throws can be up to eight times warmer than sheep’s wool and much cosier than cotton, thanks to their hollow fibres, whilst weighing a fraction of a wool blanket in the same size. These qualities make this material perfect for a cashmere blanket or cashmere throw, as well as a winter accessory or wrapped around you as a pashmina – pure cashmere in any form is guaranteed to keep you luxuriously warm and cosy!
Styling cashmere throws
The finesse of a pure cashmere fibre means that it possesses a natural, lustrous sheen, so doesn’t require adornment or bells and whistles to make it look naturally beautiful as a pure, luxurious cashmere blanket or cashmere throw. Even though your cashmere blanket or cashmere throw can be left undyed, and you can find beautiful natural weaves in creams, browns and greys, the nature of the fibre also allows it to be dyed with both subtle and vibrant colours – so there’s bound to be a style to suit your home: try a luxurious sky blue cashmere throw or blanket, a warm and inviting pink cashmere throw or blanket, or a cashmere throw or cashmere blanket in Nordic-inspired grey.
Cashmere throws and cashmere wool blankets can be woven in chunky finishes similar to a chunky-knit blanket, in basket weaves, or in jacquard styles with fringing for a more traditional look. The fine cashmere woollen yarns are perfect for intricate weaves, too: many of the styles in our collections are created using a jacquard weave, which produces subtle and timeless patterns for your cashmere blanket or cashmere throw that work well in every type of interior style.
Where can I use my cashmere blankets and cashmere throws?
Because it’s so soft, warm, and stylish, you can use your cashmere blanket or cashmere throw in any room in the home, or even as a wool blanket or oversized pashmina to cover your shoulders when sitting outdoors on cold winter nights.
In the bedroom, drape a luxurious cashmere blanket or cashmere throw over the bed for an extra cosy layer in winter. In the living room, when used in place of a regular wool blanket, pure cashmere blankets or cashmere throws add a touch of elegance to the room. Because it’s a timeless fabric, pure cashmere won’t go out of fashion as the trends (or seasons) change; no matter the weather or the look of the day, a pure cashmere blanket or throw is an investment that will look gorgeous and luxurious with all of your furniture year after year.
Whether your space demands a light, silky pink cashmere throw or cashmere blanket, a serene blue cashmere throw or cashmere blanket, or a grey cashmere throw or cashmere blanket for a more muted look with a Scandinavian-inspired palette, a pure cashmere blanket or cashmere throw in any colour is a home textile that’s sure to enrich your space, whatever the season. It’s possible to use your cashmere throw in the living room for snuggling up on the couch, or in the garden for an extra warm, luxurious layer.
Cashmere blanket blends
If a 100% pure cashmere blanket or cashmere throw is a little out of your budget, you can still enjoy the softness and warmth by investing in a cashmere blend blanket. There are a few options available, but the most common are wool-cashmere blends and alpaca-cashmere blends.
These designs are usually made with around 30-50% cashmere, which elevates the overall finish to something luxurious and soft, even when it's not a 100% pure cashmere product. You will feel the difference in comparison with a regular wool blanket; cashmere blankets and cashmere throws, even if they’re a cashmere blend and not pure cashmere, are still silky soft pieces, which will last season after season. A cashmere throw or blanket is still a good option for your home, and if your budget only stretches to a cashmere blend throw or blanket and not a pure cashmere blanket or pure cashmere throw, even this blend will still lend a silky soft accent of luxury to your living space.
