  • 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.
