LASSCO (the ropewalk one, not sure about the vauxhall one) does quite nice, pretty cheap blankets made from vintage fabrics, I think you can even get them to make one up from their fabric selection.

They have nice patterned ones in-store (well they did last time I was in). The pendletons on TGD are all either tiny (baby blankets) or crap, also the discount doesn't apply to them.

While we're on the subject where is the best place to get a Pendleton or similar 'native american' design blanket for? I can't afford the proper real deal but would like something decent. American ebay?

oh! not sure what I was thinking at work. even the lassco ones on the link I posted look much worse on my monitor at home.

Teixidor look cool Dee, but yeah, I'm after something cheap enough so I'm not inclined to treat it so preciously Laughing out loud being extra cautious with items is such a ballache. I guess that's the point where the things you own start owning you.

Faribault would have been great, but fuck it, after that realisation I aint getting another one Laughing out loud

how big are you looking for?
fairbault's twin is what was done for the supreme version - 66" x 96"


they do a queen and king too.

otherwise you could buy a few yards of bemidji's 30 oz wool and have a boarder stitched up or finish off the edges..

After a Hay Mags sofa
Based in Manchester and ideally want to try one out first. Is there any showrooms in NW which have them on site.
Also need advice on fabrics as there are tonnes of options and need something bombproof due to the offspring.
Anyone got one that recommends for comfort etc?

I think Quooker basic can be had for around £700

My understanding is the Quooker water genuinely gets to 100 degrees plus but the red isn't truly boiling just very fucking hot. No idea what difference that all makes though.

Red has a water filter that Quooker doesn't so if you live in London or another smog fest city you may want the filter.

Quooker have been at it longer and sold more than anyone else.

Also I wouldn't get an all in one that takes over your kitchen tap too, these things all break at some point and when they do if it isn't separate you have fuck all water in the kitchen, separate means you always have your normal tap whatever.
