Stand by for a bit of a love fest.
See, I do love soft things. And stripy things. And lovely coloured things.
And the blankets from the Stripy Blankets Company?
All those things.
And spots too.
You need one.
This blanket is perfect, and Pink adores it nearly as much as I do. And the best thing is that it’s such good quality I can see her still using it in 20 years time.
Despite her best ministrations, this blanket still looks perfect, even after months of ‘loving’ it with a bit of dribble, a bit of wee (sorry), a bit too much jam and an awful lot of dragging it around. It’s not too bulky, but is plenty big enough for us both to curl up under on the sofa for a book sharing cuddle-up. It’s big enough for tea parties, small enough for the car, handy to use on her cotbed (you know, as blanket of all things), and despite having pink on it isn’t the least bit offensive to three big brothers (who all try to snaffle some useage when her back is turned).
It machine washes really well (and yes, it is 100% lambswool so use the wool cycle!) and though I’ve not dared to tumble dry such a precious thing (I am not that stoopid) it does dry remarkably quickly.
As always, we suggest you do have a mooch around the lovely, outdoors-fresh site; there’s cotton versions too (and some with spots!), and if you really don’t like the stripes (tsk) there’s even a (nice-but-duller-than-the-stripes) plain one for you.
Bestest of bests, The Stripy Company is run by two Mums – Anouk and Christa – and you know how much we like it when we find Lovely Products being sold by Lovely Mums. Happiness is thus.
*NB – The Stripy Company since changed their blanket sizes. You can now choose between a pram blanket size, or a large picnic blanket. Even better!
