5 Winter Warmer Ideas for Your Family

Here at Woodend General, we love winter in the Macedon Ranges. It’s the perfect time to get out into nature and enjoy the clean country air and good food and wine. We also love cosy knitwear, hats, gloves, scarves, boots and all the warm colours and styles we can enjoy. With winter fast approaching, here are some winter outfit ideas and tips for your family.

1.   Be Warm and Prepared With a Tartan Blanket

With our Wool Scottish Tartan Blanket, you’ll be nice and warm whatever the weather or temperature — and you’ll be prepared for a multitude of scenarios. Made from 100% recycled wool, the Grampians Goods Co Tartan Blankets are imported from Scotland, where they know a thing or two about staying warm through long cold winters.

These are the ultimate multi purpose blankets, use them as a picnic blanket, take it on a camping trip, or lay it over the kids if they fall asleep on the journey home. Available in a wide range of earthy colours, there is sure to be one that will look fabulous in your home. Also available in Navy.

2.   Layer your Winter outfit with our range of Tightology tights.

Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing what you want. With a warm pair of Wool Tights, you can carry on wearing dresses, skirts, and even shorts all year round. Merino wool tights have a rib pattern running through to add depth and definition. Made in Italy from 56% Merino wool that meets the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), our tights are 75 denier and have an elasticised waistband to keep them in place. We have a large range of both wool and cotton tights, in a rainbow of gorgeous wintery tones.

3.   Boots and Chunky Socks Add Style to Any Outfit

Whatever your age and whatever you’re wearing, boots can transform your outfit. Just add a pair of Chunky Rib Wool Socks for comfort. Tightology’s Chunky Socks for men and women are made from Merino wool and feel soft and luxurious. Choose the Dotty Short Wool Socks, which are also made from premium Merino wool, for a fun twist on your favourite winter outfit.

4.   Stay Cosy with a Mohair Throw

Our Ghost Mohair Throw from St Albans Textiles is a great way to keep warm, and the gorgeous greys and whites mean it will look good in any room. Drape it over your couch or bed, or unfold it and wrap it all around yourself for ultimate cosy comfort. These throw’s are made from high-quality mohair from Angora Goat farms in Australia and South Africa. If you prefer brighter, bolder colours, take a look at the Marigold Mohair Throw.

5.   Jumpers That Kids Love to Wear

Keep the kids warm this winter with our selection of cosy knit jumpers and sweaters.

A firm favourite of ours is the gorgeous Halcyon Nights Hide and Seek Knit Jumper. This jumper is made from soft, breathable cotton and nylon, so they won’t get overheated, itchy or uncomfortable, and better still, its is machine washable and will hold its shape so kids can enjoy it over and over again.

Brighten up any dreary winters days with our Goldie & Ace Sunshine Cotton Sweater. Featuring the most adorable sunshine print you’ve ever seen, this versatile cotton sweater is ideal for under a warm jacket and perfect as it starts to warm up come Spring time.
