Special feature: The Travelwrap

The Travelwrap from The Travelwrap Company arrived at A Luxury Travel Blog HQ this week.  This company offers the perfect travelling companion in the form of their original, contemporary, Scottish-knitted cashmere Travelwraps.  So soft and luxurious,  they are  made from the finest cashmere: the company  spent a long time finding the right mill  to do the  knitting and dying of the ethically-sourced  yarn as the finish and palette of cashmere is so important. Knitted by one of the world’s top cashmere suppliers in Scotland, this was a vital ingredient in getting The Travelwrap exactly right. There are four Travelwrap collections  available, with a variety of designs to choose from, covering classic and contemporary styles.   Ours  is ‘Poppies’ from the Eclectic  Collection (pictured) and it came in a beautifully-presented signature gift box and wrapped in tissue paper.   As we lifted it from the box, it exuded luxury in every way and we could immediately see why it was well suited for travel, being so lightweight.   Also, being 100% cashmere,  it  beats those awful acrylic blankets you get on flights by a country  mile – in fact, it’s not really fair to draw any comparison! It’s with good reason, therefore, that The Travelwrap  earned the prestigious title  of ‘Luxury Gift of the Year 2008’. Although marketed for travel, you could equally use The Travelwrap at home, curled up on the sofa in your PJs with a good book. And despite being largely  a girl thing, The Travelwrap  also comes in smaller sizes for toddlers and children. What’s more,  the company is to launch slightly more muted Travelwraps for Him collection later in 2009. Travelwraps retail from £191 adult/ £140 children and are available online.  But here’s some good news for you,  our readers! The Travelwrap Company is kindly offering readers of  A Luxury Travel Blog a 20% discount on purchases from The Eclectic Collection or Evening Collection made  up to and including  30th April 2009.   Just quote the promotional code TRAV1.

  1. Its good to see Scottish wool making a comeback. In the Lake District, the National Trust subsidise the sheep farmers because there is no market for the wool.

  2. These look pretty good. I always carry a pashmina in my day pack as so many places are too fiercely refrigerated (air con). Malaysia is one of the worst places I’ve encountered for this. I never go there without a fleece jacket, even when the ambient temperature is in the 90s (F).

  3. Great for planes, airports and air conditioned hotels, certainly beats airline blankets – think it will have the snuggletastic effect making the flight just a bit more comfortable.
