  • 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 a large blanket as a baby shower gift for my friend - she was absolutely made up with such a personal and beautiful gift. The blanket was a perfect size as she will use this when her baby is first born and also as he gets older. The material and quality are amazing, so soft and carefully knitted. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you for providing us with the perfect gift and fantastic service ?

    positive review  Bought one of these blankets before my baby arrived. Was so in love with it when it arrived and couldn’t wait to use it. The wool is so soft, the colour is beautiful (turquoise and white stripe) and it is lovely and warm for my baby girl now she’s here. Every time I’ve used it someone has complemented it and stated how nice it is, so thank you. Would definitely recommend buying one and spending that little bit more, totally worth every penny.
