British Made With Love
Our Historic Mills
We embrace Britain's long weaving heritage to bring you beautiful and contemporary throws for your home. Our blankets and picnic rugs are woven at traditional mills in the British Isles. The last of their kind, they have been weaving the finest quality wool cloth for generations.
By sharing our passion for British design and craftsmanship, you help ensure this precious local industry continues to thrive. More about weaving.
THE STORY SO FAR
Our Family Business
We're Bethan and Joe, the brother and sister team behind The British Blanket Company. Since 2015 we've lovingly curated the best selection of British-made wool throws available online. In 2019 we were proud to win 'Family Business of the Year' at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
We live and work in historic Bristol where, legend has it, Flemish weaver Thomas Blanquette produced the first 'blankets' in the 14th century. More of our story.
Soft, Strong, Sustainable
Our Wonderful Wool
Wool really is the most amazing natural material. We love that wool is warm and cosy but, did you know, it's also one of the strongest and most flexible fibres on earth? Not to mention it's hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, odour-resistant, breathable, non-toxic and biodegradable too.
These are the reasons we love weaving blankets and scarves from pure wool. More about wool.
