Throws & Blankets
Add a throw for style and warmth! Whatever the season, adding a throw or blanket to your bed, armchair or sofa will guarantee extra layers of style and comfort to your home. During the summer, throws are great for outdoor entertainment at the end of the day, when temperatures start to decrease. During the winter, a blanket or a throw is an invitation to snuggle up and be comfortable. In addition, throws and blankets can add a splash of colour, make a design statement or finish off the style and feel of a room. They can update an old armchair, hide unfortunate stains, be draped over the bottom of a bed for extra warmth, or give a room a quick make-over without blowing your life savings on a new piece of designer furniture. Our huge range of throws and blankets covers every colour imaginable, the only limit is your imagination.

How should I choose my throw or blanket?
First of all, decide whether your throw or blanket is more of a fashion statement or a functional item. Do you want it to blend in with your room, or to add a splash of a particular colour to match your decor? Then decide on the colour of your throw or blanket first. The next thing is to decide on the design of your throw or blanket - patterned or plain? With so many options to choose from at Spotlight, you are bound to find the right look here.
If, however you are choosing throws or blankets for warmth and comfort, it makes sense to decide on your favourite kind of material first. Do you prefer the natural feel of cotton or wool? Or the silky texture of polyester fleece or faux fur? Where you are planning to use your blanket or throw may also impact your decision, as some woollen throws will not like getting wet outdoors, but would be ideal for use inside the home.
Finally, take a look at the size of your chosen blanket. A casual throw may only measure 120 x 150 cm, which is fine on an armchair, or just to drape over your lap or shoulders, while some blankets are big enough to cover a queen or king-size bed. As well as adding a finishing touch to the look of your bedroom, having an extra blanket available will come in handy if the nights suddenly get colder, or if one partner prefers a warmer sleeping environment than the other.

How do I care for my throws and blankets?
Always take care to read the laundry care labels, as some blankets can be put through the washing machine on a gentle wash, while others may need to be hand-washed or dry cleaned. Always try to line dry your throws or blankets, and if needed re-shape them while they are still damp, if the washing has pulled them out of shape. If they can be dried in a tumble dryer, always use the coolest setting to avoid shrinking or damaging the fibres.
