As we enter into the heart of January, there are few things I enjoy more than snuggling on the couch to watch a movie, or cuddling up in bed with a giant mug of hot tea and an equally steamy book. But the one component that makes both activities even sweeter is a good blanket – a soft, cozy throw to keep the winter’s chill at bay.
These 100 percent organic cotton blankets from Our Green House in Newtown would be a wonderful choice in either instance. They’re made from 100 percent Global Organic Textile Standard-certified organic cotton, according to the strictest environmental standards. (The Global Organic Textile Standard, [GOTS)] is considered by many to be the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made of organic fibers.) Available in Beige, Olive, Pewter, Chocolate and Indigo, there’s enough variety of color to complement most decors. (I happen to really like the chocolate pictured here – it’s very versatile.) Plus, the throw’s classic cable knit body, bordered with a wide ribbed band, will add a little extra texture to a room.
At 50 inches by 60 inches, the blankets would provide ample coverage for you and your sweetie of choice. So cuddle up, folks, and enjoy the winter!
