Desire/Acquire: Warm Wool Throws


Nothing's cozier on a Winter evening than cuddling up under a cozy throw on your sofa. I love this Gump's Sweater Knit Throw ($325), which resembles your boyfriend's oversized sweater, and whose handknit cables give it an extra touch of authenticity. It's a great color and looks silky, but it's an acrylic/wool/poly blend, which is not my favorite cuddling fabric combination. And that price tag is a bit of a turn off.


To see something that I think is even prettier, and way more affordable, read more.


Available in a soothing feather gray or oatmeal heater hues, the Lutz & Patmos Cable Throw ($89) is about the same size as the Sweater Knit Throw, but a fraction of the price. Available through West Elm and designed by luxury sweater and knitwear designers Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos, this textural cable knit is pretty, cozy, and a much more sophisticated home accent than the higher-priced throw. While it's still a blend of acrylic and wool fibers, I'm willing to overlook that fabric faux pas, given the throw's great price and dashing good looks.
