im thinking of purchasing the broad stripe blankets for my childrens beds but 1 review ive seen have said they,re thin and coarse-
has anyone got one ??
i do need the blanket to be soft,not so bothered about the thickness as it will be more of a throw.

They are a bit nasty try dunhelm mills they have similar cheaper v soft and they wash well

I have a melin pillow which is lovely but my Avoca blanket is much much softer - available from JL

We have one on our bed , but I wouldn't put one on a child's bed .
I think they're dry clean only aren't they ?
It's very light , looks very nice .
We have it on top of the duvet .
I would buy something cheaper easy to wash for a child's bed .
What age are the children ?

thanks for your replies
should have added dc are age between 9 and 17,
im yet to find broad/wide stripes in any wool blankets anywhere else
dont want the nautical look, checks/plaid or plain.
will look at dunhelm mill and john lewis- thanks
anymore suggestions very welcome.

Peacock Blue? But be careful when you google!

I have a melin cushion. Gorgeous sturdy fabric, but not at all soft. The mill shop is lovely; DH had to dread me away from the coats.
