Designed for absolute comfort, we have chosen the softest 100% British lambswool, dyed and spun exclusively for us in the Yorkshire Dales and then woven to our design by a small family run mill in the Black Mountains of Wales. The end result is a blanket that is wonderfully comforting and warm and yet super-soft and light too.
The Britannia Picnic Blanket has been backed with navy Staywax waterproof cotton, manufactured in the UK to the highest standards, making this blanket hardwearing and ideal for outdoor use. We’ve even added a bag of fresh Chilcott lavender to keep your blanket beautifully fragranced for many summers to come. The lavender is grown on our farm in the Usk Valley and fastened to the picnic blanket by a stylish button made from Welsh oak, hand-turned exclusively for Chilcott by a local wood sculptor who works nearby in her studio situated on the banks of the River Usk.
Each blanket comes with its own handmade navy Staywax waterproof cotton bag which is large enough to accommodate the picnic blanket, along with a bottle of wine and a book.
When your Lavender Bag finally loses its scent, simply post it back to us with a return address and we will replenish it free of charge.
Our Britannia Picnic Blanket carries the British Wool Marketing Board’s prestigious Platinum logo. This means that the pedigree of the wool can be traced from the Board’s famous Bradford wool auctions all the way through the manufacturing process and is guaranteed to be 100% British.
