Don’t worry, I haven’t lost my marbles, this isn’t the same blanket that we had for sale last week! It was made by the same person and is obviously very similar in design – goodness knows how they had the patience to make two of them – but isn’t in quite as good a condition. Judging by the few stray dog hairs that we found (don’t worry, we’ve given it a good wash*) I think the little terrier in the house had a bit of a soft spot for this blankie – who wouldn’t! But that’s not the main issue – the real difference is in the quality of the wool that they used. Some of the wool on this blanket has gone quite fluffy, while the other blanket was nice and smooth – I suspect that that’s as result of a more cotton-rich (and expensive) wool being used for the first blanket. The colours also aren’t quite as strong, but its’ still a very cool blanket that would look great on a 3/4 (possibly double) bed – it fits the width of my queen bed, but isn’t quite long enough.

A very striking blanket that will add a pop of colour to your bedroom.

*Note: We have washed the blanket, but some of the dog hairs remain. I’m certain that they’ll come off over time as you use the blanket – unless you have your own pup, in which case it will only get worse!
