Howlin' into winter

I have a new-found appreciation for woollen goods and knitwear. I used to despise woollen clothes back in the day, most likely because we had to wear them as part of our school uniform - scratchy wool and classrooms that smelt like wet dog on a rainy day are not my idea of a fun time. After living in colder European cities and rediscovering snuggly wool (hello merino), I have a new love for knitwear. Now it reminds me of fun winter days with mulled wine, crisp fresh air and warming meals.

My friend recently introduced me to Howlin' and I have been mildly obsessed with (slash can't-stop-thinking-about) the brand ever since. They have such a great range of knitwear, from cuddly jumpers to cosy socks, warm beanies to snuggly scarves and more. Their range embodies everything that I associate with the cooler seasons - melange knit, festive fair isle patterns, lambswool, cable knit, ribbed material and seasonal tones. Makes me feel cosy just thinking about it.

Quality over quantity as they say!Happy Thanksgiving all.
