Chilly mornings & cooler nights. Wrap up warm!

By lisawato / October 17, 2022 /

Is your heating on? Mine is, but I am also piling on the layers and using a hot water bottle to keep warm in Baltic weather! I’m notoriously nesh which goes right against my celtic roots, but might explain one of the reasons for my passion for authentic British textiles. If any excuse were needed to wrap up warm in a sumptuous Harris Tweed Quilt with the chilly mornings & cold nights, now is the time you can truly indulge in some delicious cosy cosseting at home.

I have three beautiful & bright Harris Tweed Quilts currently in stock and these are now being offered at the best reduced price of £275. So treat yourself or a loved one while stocks allow.

Enjoy your week, keep warm & onward x
