At an opening wholesale price point of $39.99 for the twin is Rockwell, an all-cotton construction. Next up, at $59.99, is Stockbridge, a blend of 50 percent cotton and 50 percent cotton chenille. At the top of the line is Luxury Cotton, a mercerized Pima cotton for an ultra-soft hand.
All styles are available in a core palette of sugar white, midnight blue and nutmeg. Fashion colors are whisper pink, pewter green and overall blue.
A major introduction in throws is the Luxor Throw group, a trendy collection of lodge looks, stripes and plaids capitalizing on the strong run faux fur has had in the market. The throw is $49.99, and colors and styles include evergreen, celestial, snow time and Scottish fling plaid.
