Passionate about wool

It's no secret that we love wool! This natural material has so many amazing properties and we're proud that all our blankets are made from 100% wool - no compromises.

Heritage woven through

We are committed to supporting the traditional craft of weaving in the British Isles. All our blankets and scarves are woven at historic mills in the UK and Ireland.

The gift of cosiness

We're often asked, "why blankets"? Well, because we love offering people an affordable way to style their homes and get snuggly in the process. What's not to love?!

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, picnic rugs and scarves 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.

The story so far
Our Family Business

Yes, that's us! 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.

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.
