A common misconception is that throw blankets are strictly for use during the colder months. However, these trendy, stylish and beautiful products can be used year-round, and have become known as ‘the summer blanket’.
Stylish and Functional
There are summer nights that still have a slight chill in the air, this is why having a couple of throws around to keep warm is handy. Especially when you don’t want to feel claustrophobic under a thick and heavy blanket. In addition, you can make use of summer throws for outdoor activities such as:
- A picnic in the park – Light and airy linen throws with fringed edges make for excellent places to sit down and enjoy some time in the sun with friends and family. All you have to do is slip one into your picnic basket and set out for your nearest family park or botanical gardens.
- Post swim wrap – After taking a dip, to prevent yourself from catching a chill, utilise a cotton throw to combat the goose flesh. They can also be utilised on outdoor couches for when you have a braai and one of your guests is chilly.

- Create contrast – On earth toned bedspreads, consider placing a summer blanket in a complimentary colour over the edge of the bed for an aesthetically appealing result.
