No. 1 - The Handknit Chevron Stitch Sweater
First on our list is the Handknit Chevron Stitch Sweater which has to be one of the warmest sweaters on the market. Handknits, which are naturally warmer than their loomed counterparts, can often make you feel as though you are wearing two sweaters at once but still with a comfortable and easy to breath feel. Layer up underneath to wear this Sweater outside instead of a coat.
No. 2 - Chunky Aran Hat
And when it comes to wrapping up warm for outside, we also recommend our Aran Booble Hat. Don't be deceived by its size as not only has this little hat proven itself the most fashionable winter accessory as of late but it is also one of the warmest around. This chunky wool knit is also fleece lined with super soft fleece for even extra warmth and softness.
No. 3 - A Sheepskin Rugs
A Sheepskin Rug is a true classic for the home this Wintertime and although you can't exactly wrap it around yourself, it is great nestled into the back of an arm or rocking chair as well as at the end of a bed or couch. Just imagine toasting your toes on this natural and fluffy beauty in front of a crackling fire on a cold stormy night.... ok we better stop with this day dream if we actually want to have any chance of finishing this article!
