Key feature: Pretty history
At first glance this is a pretty blanket in pastel check and you wouldn't be wrong. Dig deeper and the magic happens! A simple but bright label with a wee scottie dog mascot, Mosgiel Woollen Factory was the first woollen mill in the country back in 1871. Jump forward the 1960's and this is the beautiful product they were manufacturing. How fantastic here 60 years on this wee beauty will go on to warm up winters for another couple of decades (at least!)
A familiar favourite this blanket has all the cosy plus nostalgia. Mint, pink and cream check feel that 60's vibe.
