New Special Edition Wool Blanket Collection: Garden Flowers
We're thrilled to announce the launch of our new blanket collection, Garden Flowers... just in time for the arrival of spring!
As always, all our blankets and throws are made in the British Isles, but this time we've partnered with a mill in the Scottish Highlands. It's the first time The British Blanket Company has worked with a Scottish mill, and we're proud to bring you six beautiful throws to help bring the colours of the outdoors into your home.

What's the inspiration behind the new collection?
The Garden Flowers range is inspired by the blooms in our Granny's Devon garden. It's a place where the flowers bloom in vibrant colours, and the air is filled with their sweet fragrance. It's where we spent many summer days as children, with the sunshine on our faces and the grass beneath our feet.
Tell us about the woollen mill where the blankets are woven...
The mill has a rich history dating back over 200 years. Situated in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, the location is stunningly beautiful, surrounded by mountains, forests, and rivers. The mill has been in operation since 1783, weaving some of the finest wool fabrics in the world.
The team has an incredible passion for quality, and every stage of the production process is carried out with the utmost care. They select only the best materials, use traditional weaving techniques, and finish each piece by hand. It's this level of attention to detail that makes us honoured to be working with them on our new Garden Flowers blanket range.
The Garden Flowers Collection blankets are designed with a nod towards traditional checked patterns, with The British Blanket Company's signature contemporary twist
How did you choose the colours and designs?
We wanted to capture the dazzling array of colours in a traditional cottage garden, creating six colourways inspired by popular flowers: delphinium, heather, hollyhock, forget-me-not, lavender and marigold. The pattern nods to traditional Scottish check blanket designs, but with The British Blanket Company's signature modern twist. Snuggle up in your choice of these colourful throws and imagine yourself transported to an abundant garden on a sunny day... you can almost smell the floral scents and hear the buzzing of bees and chirping birds in the trees!
How are the blankets woven and what are they made from?
These reversible and jacquard woven throws are a little thicker and more substantial than our other merino throws, making them perfect for snuggling up on chilly evenings. Our super-soft merino lambswool yarns are lighter, warmer, and smoother than traditional sheep's wool, so they feel gorgeous and luxurious to the touch. At 140cm x 180cm, the Garden Flowers throws are large enough to use as a blanket on a bed or sofa, or to wrap around yourself when relaxing with a cuppa in the garden.
