WRAP OF THE IRISH
Since 1723, the Irish company Avoca has been proffering throws woven from the wool spun at a mill in County Wicklow. These days, its shops across the country sell all things cozy, from teapots to Christmas cake, but the brand’s handwoven blankets—in mohair, lamb’s wool, cashmere and Donagel wool—remain its signature ware. Order online until you make it over to tour the mills in scenic Wicklow, known for its wildflower-dotted scenery and abundant gardens (from about $85, avoca.com).
