Being total perfectionists here at So Cosy, our Picnic collection is second generation, new, improved designs of outdoor blanket. When manufacturing, we use only the highest quality, ethically sourced materials from world class suppliers, with whom we have a ‘one to one’ relationship with. Everything is made to our specification with close attention to quality and detail.
Picnic, are dual sided blankets, with the upper side crafted in our un-dyed soft brown 100% Pure New Wool, and the ground side in waterproof British made waxed cotton.
We collaborated with The Halley Stevensons to provide the extremely durable and convenient waxed cotton ground side. Understanding that outdoor blankets get dirty sometimes, we made sure that they are machine washable in cold water, erasing any need for dry cleaning.
The roll-up blanket design is easy to roll-up and transport. Supplied with dark woven textile carry straps, it certainly ticks the classic vintage look.
These practical and useful blankets can be used every day and all year round for all your outdoor adventuring. Use them at the park, camping, picnics, or in the car, boat, or at festivals. We hope you decide to invest in one of these practical and durable blankets and will love it and get as many years of enjoyment as we do. They make a great purchase for those who enjoy spending quality time outside and serve as an interesting, special and original gift.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Hand wash at maximum temperature of 30`C with neutral soaps for natural or fine fibres. Alternatively dry clean only with the appropriate solvent. Do not tumble dry.
About our Waxed Cotton Picnic Blanket
Waxed cotton — the original performance fabric — is cotton that has been treated with a wax coating to produce a fabric that has water repellent properties. These waxes can be made from a number of sources — from paraffin and petroleum to natural waxes and innovative hybrid blends.
Waxes and oils are naturally occurring substances found in leaves, bean/seed coverings, animal furs and feathers. It is nature’s protection against the elements.
Waxed garments can be regularly reproofed to maintain performance for many years, making them uniquely sustainable. Many synthetic man-made fabrics end up in landfills once performance levels cannot be maintained through delamination.
Unlike PFC chemistry which has been produced to give hydrophobic effects, waxes offer this barrier naturally. There is therefore less impact on the environment using waxes as a water repellent.
Our petroleum jelly and paraffin waxes are bi-products from cracking crude oil to make fuels such as gasoline. meaning we make use of the waste product of this process. The processes used to apply the waxes to a cotton fabric are also low impact, meaning we do less damage to the environment than many established manufacturing methods.
Our waxes are fully biodegradable, PFC’s are extremely persistent in the environment.
