I know I'm not alone in my love for blankets.
It's a quest for ultimate comfort. Not just physical comfort, but that cosy and safe feeling you get inside when you're wrapped up in a thick wool blanket.
It's a shield from the cold, as well as the scary outside world.
Blankets make your bed more interesting - adding more colour or texture. They are an extra heavy layer when it's -5ºC and your loft room isn't very well insulated. They are the perfect thing to grab in the middle of the night if you need to pop downstairs.
A thin cotton blanket is amazing this time of year too - when it's too hot to sleep under a duvet, but you feel exposed without any sort of cover.
Obviously, a blanket is the perfect accompaniment to a picnic, or to the beach. If your outdoor pursuits continue into the evening, you can wrap up your bare legs.
Once, I lay on a blanket atop a hill, watching a meteor shower with good friends, tea & muffins.
A blanket is something soft and warm to touch when everything else feels so hard and cold.
