I have been fancying a cosy throw for some time but all the faux sheepskin ones I have seen have been too expensive. One on Lakeland website works out around £40 including delivery.
This throw I found on the Damart website - originally costing £20 but currently reduced to half price.
I was lucky enough to also have a £6 off voucher that they had sent me so even adding on the £2.95 postage I managed to get this throw for £6.95 which I thought was a bargain.
I already have a hat and mittens in this sort of fabric so knew that it was warm and cosy.
The throw itself has is faux sheepskin or shirling as they are now tending to call it.
One side being fluffy and cream while the other is a fleece fabric bonded on to it - I chose the Mocha which is a lovely mid brown the colour of milk chocolate.
The throw has a three quarter inch hem turned and stitched down around the four sides.
The other colour choice is burgundy which is a deep wine colour which I would also like to get at some point.
This fabric is quite expensive to buy so even if you only purchased it to use for other things it is still good value - you could make it into cushions, a scarf or wrap or hats.
Possibly not as quality as some of the very expensive ones - but still good value for what I paid for it.
This throw is a decent size for one person to use and although I use mine in the bedroom it can be equally as useful as a throw on a settee to either put over yourself or to sit on - as it is lovely and soft and soon makes you feel nice and cosy.
I keep mine to use as an extra covering when sitting up in bed as my bedroom faces north and has a draughty window so is the coldest room in the house.
Trying not too use so much oil for the central heating these days this is lovely and cosy and the fluffy side soon traps your body heat and you feel lovely and warm.
Warmer than a basic fleece blanket this is lightweight and can also be used for lying on in bed if you are feeling very cold.
This is a lovely throw which is of a decent size but small enough to be carried round the house to where you need it.
This is washable and although I have no need to clean mine yet this sort of fabric does wash well as I have done my gloves and hat a few times which are made from the same fabric.
Great for yourself in these days of austerity or as an inexpensive gift for an elderly relative or neighbour.
