One of homestyle’s most oft-received questions is “How do you throw a throw?” and we’re never not glad you asked. The answer is: fold it in half to make a triangle, grab a corner then, well, throw. Not only do such pieces look great arranged on chairs, sofas and beds, they’re also ultra-practical when it’s chilly — and Auckland-based brand Weave does them particularly well, purveying a considered selection of wool, cotton, heritage-style and block-hued options. This is the 100% wool Catlins throw, which comes in three colour combos.
