The 'Beast from the East' is here and it looks like we've a cold week ahead. We have stacks of blankets at Tolly HQ so we can keep ourselves cosy through the icy blast, and we hope you keep warm too. Here are our top 4 tips to beat the beast with Tolly McRae.

1. KEEP A BLANKET IN YOUR CAR. If you must travel, make sure you have a shovel, a blanket, a flask of hot tea or coffee and a torch. Try our chunky rugs in carry strap from £115. These blankets are great for the car and will carry you right through to summer picnics.

2. WRAP UP WARM. Wool is an excellent insulator and keeps the cold out much more efficiently than man made fibres. Our huge blanket scarves can be wrapped 'round and 'round your neck or worn over your shoulders for an added outer layer. These checked wraps are over 2 meters long and made of supersoft 100% merino wool. £59

 

3. LAYER UP INDOORS, especially at night. Trap warm air between layers of bedding and blankets just like they did in the olden days. We think our merino throws are ideal for beds as they're not too bulky, look exceptionally stylish when folded at the foot of the bed and do make a difference in terms of warmth when laid out over the duvet. From £125

4. PAW PROTECTION. There's nothing more fun for a dog than hopping about in the snow, but when they come back in, its wet fur and muddy paws galore. Our Essential wool throws cover your sofa and are the perfect protection from bedraggled beasts. £69
