Cotton blankets, how do you wash and care for those?

It’s super easy, so just your normal washing machine cycle.  As with anything try and avoid using the dryer to dry the entire product.  So where possible try and get it out on  a clothes line even if it’s not in the sun but in the shade, and get it out and get most of the moisture off before you finish it off in the dryer to prolong the life of the product.


When can babies sleep with pillows and blankets? 

Blankets can be in the cot from the beginning, but you have to follow the SIDS guidelines on where you place your baby in the cot.  These say to place them at the base so that they can't wriggle down and go under the blanket that you've tucked in.


Do wool blankets make nice gifts?

An old school person might gift a woollen blanket, but you're getting up there in price-point as a gift.  And not everyone uses a woollen blanket these days.  If it’s within the family, like it’s your mum, it might make a good present.  But if it’s just someone wanting to buy an engagement present or a wedding present, we tend to think more robes and sheets than blankets.
