Baby It’s Cold Outside

by Erica


The winter chill is in the air and baby, it’s cold outside. Sadly for my family, it’s cold inside too. Our heater went out last week, so we have been spending a lot of time in the family room huddled close to the fireplace.

blanketI was delighted to receive the Cashmere Blend Throw from Lands’ End. It came just in time. Made from two of nature’s best insulators, wool and cashmere, the throw is “warmth and softness knit into one”.

I have been keeping myself wrapped in its warmth for most of the day, as I sit typing away at my desk, and as I cuddle on the couch with popcorn and a movie. I have also been covering my youngest son with it at night, since the quilt on his bed is a bit thin.

Speaking of thin, I am completely impressed with the warmth the Cashmere Blend Throw provides, especially because it is very lightweight.

The Cashmere Blend Throw retails for $119.50 and comes in 6 great colors. Right now, the throw is on sale at the reduced price of $89.63. For $5.00 extra, you can monogram it, making it a perfect personalized gift.

We want to send some warmth your way. One lucky reader will win a Lands’ End Cashmere Blend Throw in the color of their choice. See below on how to enter to win.
