    positive review  Blanket came today it is perfect just what I expected if not more! The quality is 5/5 and the blanket is so thick and cozy my little one loves it! Great choice of colours and designs, there is a bit of a wait as the blankets are handmade but well worth it and the lovely team keep you up to date with where your orders at, they always reply fast and are honest. Will definitely be telling all my friends and family about this company.

    positive review  I ordered the rainbow pom pom blanket in the large size. I can’t believe how fast it took to be made and then delivered it literally came within 2 days of being started even though I was given the time scale of 3-5 days which I was completely happy with too. They keep you up dated of when I’m your blanket is going to be started, when it’s finished and when it’s going to be posted out. Can’t fault a single thing because the service is amazing and the blanket itself is stunning. I’ll be ordering the extra large next. Cant wait to bring my baby girl home in it thank you so much 😍
