    Mourne Textiles on Country DaysAs temperatures drop our thoughts turn to spending nights in snuggled under cosy layers! The perfect excuse to indulge our overwhelming fondness for luxurious throws & blankets; our hearts feel a little warmer at the mere sight of this beautiful woven range by Mourne Textiles.

    The collection features premium throws made from the softest Pure Merino wool and Mohair yarns. These are handwoven on a traditional Donegal Loom at the foot of the Mourne mountains, the idyllic location of the family-run workshop.

    Curling up on the sofa with woolly layers is the best way to spend dark January evenings. We’ve found the perfect luxurious blankets and cushions from Seven Gauge Studios to add texture, warmth and a touch of colour to your home.

    The collection of knitted accessories, with bold graphic patterns, are the creation of talented designer Joy Bates who loves to work with rich primary colours. Her designs are just the thing to lift the spirits; we could all do with a splash of feel-good brights at this time of the year.
