For thoughtful, creative, and functional gifts, choose an item with tactile qualities. It is a very personal gesture, and one that will be appreciated for years to come. Let us help you choose with these two considerations (Climate and Lifestyle):
Temperate climate, city streets? Snow-capped paradise - a fabulous cabin in the woods? Natural fibers perform according-to-the-environment and they are the most flexible when it comes to variable temperatures.
WoolWool is the natural choice for cold weather, creating warmth when in use - most beneficial. Brahms Mount wool is especially soft and therefore, an easy choice. The nice surprise, wool is equally as functional and comfortable in moderately warmer climates (as long as the humidity is low!)
LinenLinen thrives around water - as a towel. It is the throw on your shoulders, or the solo blanket on the bed. A chameleon in all weather, it conforms to your body and transforms the air between you and the folds of fabric. Linen insulates when cool, evaporates moisture when warm.
CottonCotton is the fiber that remains a constant. It is a comforting fabric. Weight and weave affect the density. Lighter blankets are a perfect layering blanket or all one needs in moderate to warm weather. Cotton provides just enough weight without excess warmth.
Fabrics are designed for lifestyles. Are you the outdoor shower type? A camper? Is the den your favorite room? These are the types of questions you could ask when it comes to choosing a blanket, throw, linen towel, or wrap as a gift. Activities point to lifestyle.
