Perfect for sun soaked picnics, keeping warm as the sun sets on the beach, or throwing on the bed in winter. This granny style blanket features a picnic inspired plaid pattern, continuous join and tassel edging.
The colour palette of sage greens, deep reds and mustard is inspired by late summer berries and hedgerows. But it would look great in any colour combination – I can’t wait to see some of your versions!
