Chunky knit blankets feature in some of the most admired Instagram lifestyle accounts, with top lifestyle bloggers slipping them into their flat lays wherever possible. But to wrap yourself in a chunky knit of New Zealand’s finest wool, is a feeling you simply cannot capture in a photo.
Heart from Hazel is home to Couch Candy. A chunky knit range hand made from NZ wool by Renee. I have been attached to mine since it arrived, beautifully packaged with a hand poured soy candle and a personal note of love. It drapes over my bed at night and I love thinking how it was likely made while Renee was snugged up on the couch with a cup of coffee, hand knitting my dreamy charcoal throw.
Her range includes cot candy (the perfect baby shower gift that would last a lifetime) to bed runners and couch throws, in both soft pastels and vibrant colourways. She shares the process beautifully on her Instagram account and for those who are inspired, she also offers a couch candy kit so you can knit your own at home.
The knit patterns on each side are different, one being a tighter knit and the other a looser plait style. I like the tighter bubbly look so use mine this way.
