about our wool
I have a lot of Wool&, and was thinking recently about what pieces would be my absolute ride-or-die, must-buys. Surprisingly, the Astoria throw is right at the top of the list! I use it every single day. I'm always warm, always comfortable, never overheated. In the event of an emergency, I would pack it in a go-bag. I have it in spruce and am so tempted to go back for marionberry and grey. (P.S. -- my cats loved it too.)
This throw blanket us everything! Lightweight, soft, warm but not hot. I love it!!
I think my gray Astoria throw may be my favorite Wool& item. The merino/nylon fabric is a perfect blend for a soft, luxurious feel and I use it every day. I can cover my bare legs in summer, wrap it around my neck and shoulders in chilly weather, or spread it out on my side of the bed as an extra layer. The size is fine for a throw. I'm very pleased.
Color was perfect . weight perfect. All the feedback from recipient was excellent. Was described as top shelf
It is soft, nicely weighted and useful as a throw, a wrap, a cape. I add it as a layer to my winter wardrobe and wear it around my shoulders while reading in bed.
The marionbeerry color was disappointing in this batch..its not the deep burgundy/purple of ny willow dress, instead its more of a smoky grape. I don't love it, but it's a nice subdued color and it matches exactly to the Margo dress I purchased at the same time.
I do wish it was a bit longer...when used as a throw. I have to choose to cover either my feet or my shoulders. It won't reach both.
When wrapped around my shoulders in bed it does wrap around my torso, but I have to adjust it carefully to completely cover me.
I do love that it can be worn as a scarf, wrap, cape, headcount, or even a skirt
