Winter wrap up

Did anyone else have to scrape ice from the car this morning?  It’s getting chilly out there.  Our thoughts have turned to getting cosy, and we’ve found some very nice things out there to warm up your day.

We want to snuggle with Mabel the Hedgehog, available from Sara Carr on Folksy

As t-shirt makers, we are also big fans of the winter layer.  This basic but stylish pattern for a cover up is available from The Velvet Acorn on Etsy – crochet versions are also available, and patterns for all kinds of winter woolies come in styles which work for boys or girls.

One for the mums and dads, here.  Cashmere socks are a staple of my winter evenings.  This oatmeal textured pair are from Toast, which is a fine purveyor of all things toasty-making.

Although Brora.co.uk is new to me, the brand has been making fine cashmere products in the Scottish Borders for more than 200 years.  They also have a very generous sale right now, with this traditional blanket for children reduced from £72 to £45.

Be warm out there!
