Damien Hirst will keep you warm throughout the night

Featuring such familiar icons as flesh-bare skulls, Damien Hirst’s New Religion series of luxury cashmere blankets, exclusive to Other Criteria, aren’t – aesthetically at least – the most obvious choice to keep you warm on these rain-filled nights.

However, large enough for a double bed, these cashmere throws are made in Scotland on a Jacquard loom using techniques similar to those used 150 years ago and finished by hand, air-dried and paper-pressed for, we’re told, a lustrous finish, making the cloth softer and finer than pretty much anything else on the market. Though the £975 price-tag may still leave your wallet cold. www.othercriteria.com
