Where can I buy hospital baby blankets?

Does anyone know whether and where I can buy stretchy baby blankets, like the ones they give you at the hospital? I think one we were given had "sunlight" on it and another had MIP UK on the tag. They are stretchy and really great for swaddling, but I can't find them anywhere in stores.
Thank you

The one DD was wrapped in looked more like a hand towel. It had Sunlight on too.

Sunlight isn't the blanket manufacturer it's the laundry company that supplies and washes all NHS textiles. (I used to work for a laundry equipment manufacturer).

It's not the cheapest but what about something like this:

We accidentally took a hospital blanket home with us and it was indeed the best sort for swaddling!

I would be interested in soft blankets.

I just took ours with us when we left hospital. It actually never occurred to me not to do this and the nurses saw as DS and DD were covered in their ones in their car seats!

Gingin I would be interested in your blankets if you sold then on ebay. Is this currently an option?

Debenhams jasper conran ones are just like them only softer. I adore them! (Which is ridiculous, they're only blankets...)
