Wrapped up warm in wool...

This week's sublimity is the joy of being wrapped up warm in wool on a crisp autumn day. I've been enjoying wearing some of my favourite knits to keep out the chills and thought I'd take some close up shots of the lovely woollen textures.

Detail from chunky knit wrap (Zadig & Voltaire)

Oversize (or 'boyfriend') cardigan from Sparrow (Anthropologie) - just the burnt orange colour of this cardigan makes it a natural choice for 'trick or treating' or a Guy Fawkes bonfire night party

Detail from my favourite scarf (nearly 3 m of crocheted warmth in an accessory that just keeps on giving!) and an absolute bargain from H&M 10 years ago

A burst of colour in a crocheted scarf - a Christmas gift from my sister (provenance unknown!)

They are all things of beauty - wraps, cardigans, ponchos, scarves. Be inspired and next time you look out of the window and see the sun shining but you know that when you set foot out of the door you'll see your breath in the air, stay cosy and wrap up warm in your favourite woolies!!
