    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.
