Our wonderful blanket creator Diane Dudfield never ceases to amaze us. Diane hand dyes and weaves all her blankets and we are lucky enough to stock them.

This beauty sold as soon as it hit the shop floor, we wish it had hung around a little longer!
You can see some of the ones we have in store online in our Gallery here.
