#StyleChallenge: Winter Woolly Throws from the Sheep Shop

Each month, me and 3 other bloggers get together for our #StyleChallenge post where we take a home interiors topic and give it our own individual spin. Then we share the posts with you to find the favourite. This month we’re bang on target for Autumn as we’re looking at throws.

They’ve become pretty much a staple in a living room decor. No sofa is complete without some soft cushions and a snuggly throw. Because of that, the market for more decorative throws has grown incredibly over the last few years (and I seemed to have amassed quite a collection).

sheep shopToday I wanted to share this wonderful example I’ve been sent by the lovely people at The Sheep Shop. A few weeks ago I wrote about their selection of sheepskin rugs and pelts from Sweden and Iceland which are the best I’ve come across, and this throw is certainly of the same quality.

Made from merino wool from Danish Silkeborg Uldspinneri, the throw is thick and very soft. It has a good weight to it, although it’s not too heavy (I don’t like them if they’re too heavy) and the charcoal and light grey colouring make it very versatile. The geometric pattern ensures it will fit into a contemporary or even more classically decorated home, and at just over 100 Euros, it’s a great price too.

sheep shopI’ve been keeping warm under this throw for a few weeks now (and so have the children!), particularly as our roof is still not back on whilst the attic is being converted, and in the evening it’s getting harder to keep the house warm. At one point I even had this on the bed on a particularly cold patch a few nights ago. I can certainly vouch for its warming ability and its good looks speak for themself. And just to note, it’s folded in half in the picture above so it’s a really good size.

You can see the full range of Sheep Shop throws HERE, they even sell this throw in brighter colours of Navy, Orange and Powder.

So, want to see what my blogging friends have come up with this week?

For a different take on the Throw, check out The Ana Mum Diary, Thrifty Home and A Residence.

And drop back to let me know which is your favourite. Me right?

    Hello Jen

    This is such a great idea – each blog has taken a different slant. Loving the geometric print of this throw. I would love to be involved with the next challenge (I’m sure you are flooded with offers) – but as an interior stylist, I could give it a real twist (I hope).

    Oh that looks so snuggly and warm, I love a throw on my sofa to snuggle up under as the evenings are getting colder. This one is a really modern funky patter.

    Ooh, you can’t beat a good cosy throw. I’ve visited all the blogs, and I have to say it was a close call between yours and A Residence (sorry Becky and Amanda!) but I’m calling — yours! I can just feel the warmth, softness and cosyness from the photos, and I love the geometric pattern. Gorgeous!

    (Also I’ve noticed that I was putting # instead of @ in my last few comments on your recent blog posts – duh! – please feel free to remove!)
