UGG Australia not only makes popular footwear, they also make gorgeous house wares. Currently, UGG Australia has discounted the Duffield Stripe Throw in grey/cream from $127 down to $50. If this colour does not do it for you, then you can buy the navy/cream throw on sale from $127 down to $60.
UGG Australia charges a 16% shipping rate. Thus, the $50 blanket will be shipped for only $8. The $60 blanket will cost $9.60 for shipping. You can easily see that the grey/cream throw is the better value all around. However, I like the blue/cream better as I am quite fond of nautical themed items.
This ultra-cozy blanket is made of extremely soft polyester. Both colours of throws are maritime-inspired, though the blue and cream one really shows it the best. UGG uses an ultra-plush double knit to ensure your blanket is warm and cuddly. There is also a soft knit border
This throw is designed to accent your couch or your bed and comes in a very generous size: 50″ x 70″. One reviewer said:
best blanket. ever. I never leave home without my blanket , I take it on all my trips , and everyday on the couch
This blanket sounds very decadent and would certainly be a great addition to your linen chest. I tend to use blankets on the couch every single day. My cat loves to lay on them, and I like to lay under them while watching movies, checking my twitter feed, and more. While I have some blankets made for me by relatives, I tend to keep those in the linen closet so they do not get wrecked.
When I purchase a blanket, it is important that it be easily maintained. The UGG Duffield Stripe Throw is machine washable on cold. While I prefer to hang my blankets to dry, you can tumble dry this blanket on low heat.
If your budget is a bit bigger, than the Plaid Melange Throw that I blogged about before is still available. It is another stellar deal: originally $175, it is now on sale for $85.
There are only five grey/cream throws left so place your order as soon as possible if you plan to buy one. There is much better stock available for the blue/cream throw.
Enjoy free returns from UGG Australia should you need to return your purchase. These throws also make a great gift.
