We know what it’s like when you order something online, as soon as you click confirm order, you’re looking out the window waiting for the postman. That’s why we work our hardest to have every order shipped as soon as humanly possible.
All small, medium and large blankets are shipped within 5 business days of ordering. Our extra large single bed blankets are shipped within 7-10 business days from ordering.

Yes! We can ship your blanket anywhere in the world with DHL Express. International shipping generally takes around 5 business days.

We do not pay for duties and taxes.
Yes absolutely, you can enter their address when you place your order and add a note so they will know who the amazing blanket is from.
As soon as your order has been shipped, you will receive an email with a tracking number and link to the DHL website. You will be able to refresh the DHL website every 5 seconds until your order arrives!
Our carriers are pretty great, however if you think your order may be lost in transit please let us know. Our shipping time frames are estimates and sometimes delays can happen (Hello Covid). When a delay has occurred, you may see on the DHL website an update to advise of a delay. If your order still hasn't been delivered within 30 days please contact us at email@example.com and we can submit an enquiry or provide you with a replacement.
Whoops, we’ve all done this! If you need to update your shipping address please contact us as soon as you possibly can at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provided that your order has not been shipped yet, we can update the address. Sometimes we can be so speedy that your order is shipped before we have a chance to change the address. If your order has already been shipped, you can redirect the parcel via the DHL tracking link.
All the usuals! We accept payment via credit card and Paypal. If you need a little longer to pay off your order (waiting til payday), we also offer Afterpay.
Our blankets are knitted from 100% cotton or 100% organic cotton, your choice! The yarn is super soft and we do not use any harmful chemicals so they are perfectly safe for wrapping up your babies and children (or fur babies!).
Our blankets come pre-washed (yay) so you do not need to wash them before your first use. To wash your blanket, use a gentle machine wash with warm water and wash with similar colours or on its own. Please note that if your blanket is red, pink or yellow, it may bleed onto other lighter colours so we recommend washing the blanket separately. Tumble dry on low heat. Do not bleach.
We have five different sized blankets, one for every age:
Extra Small - Newborn Blanket – 90cm x 60cm
Small - Crib Blanket – 75cm x 100cm
Medium - Cot Blanket – 90cm x 150cm
Large - Adult Blanket – 90cm x 190cm
Single Bed - Blanket – 150cm x 220cm
Please note these sizes are approximate. Due to the manufacturing process some blankets may differ in size by a few centimeters.
So many! When you start designing your blanket, you will need to select two different colours, a base and a text colour. We have a huge 33 colours to choose from! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the options, we’ve also added our own colour combinations that in our humble opinion, go really well together. Please note that the colours you see on your screen will vary slightly to the colour of the yarn.
We’ve have over 25 unique, beautiful designs to choose from. You will definitely find one you love! We also have our Signature design which features a capital letter and full name, definitely our most popular choice!
We have over 200 cute and fun symbols that you can add to your blanket! 5 of our designs allow a symbol to be added. You will see the icons underneath the colour options.
At this stage we are only making blankets with one of our pre-made designs, however if you have any suggestions for designs you would like to see, please let us know! Email us at email@example.com .
