Stylish summer blankets

Pink and Blue striped waffle wool blanket

Alfresco dining is one of the joys of long, lazy summer evenings but gardens can get chilly after dark. The perfect solution is to snuggle up in a stylish blanket to keep you cosy while sitting under the stars.

I spotted this fabulous selection at the Frome Independent Market. Created by brother and sister team Joe and Bethan John, The British Blanket Company offer a gorgeous collection of beautiful woollen throws that combine stunning contemporary colours with the traditional warmth of wool.

Patterns include traditional Welsh designs, textured waffle weave, herringbone and classic checks ranging from warm oranges, reds and yellows to cool greens and blues. Prices start at £58 with free delivery on all UK orders.
