Window Shopping: The Tartan Blanket Co.

Window Shopping is where poor little me fantasy shops on various websites, because I may be skint, but there's a lot on my wishlist and it's too beautiful not to share. I am not in any way paid or compensated for this post, it's just me sharing things I covet.

Window Shopping: The Tartan Blanket Co.

I can't remember quite how I stumbled on The Tartan Blanket Co, but they're now one of my favourite Instagram accounts to follow. Their account is just so full of love and family and adventure, and it makes me happy to look through. Also, it has all of the colsie feels, and it's seems to be the driving force behind them.

Colsie (kol-zee)/ Origin: Old Scots word for 'Cosy'
The act of slow living and making time for the people and things that soothe our souls.

They are probably best known for their tartan blankets, and as a Scottish gal I grew up with tartan blankets everywhere. There was always at least one in the car and I have many memories of being snuggled up in one as the Lead Hills zipped past the car windows, pulling one from the back of the couch for snuggles with my mum as she read me a story, spending hours picking the dried grass off of them following picnics (we didn't have such fancy things as picnic blankets, a regular blanket would do).

So, my wishlist is a little vast. But here are my highlights.

This blanket just gives me such Hufflepuff feels, and it looks so bloomin' cosy. I want to be curled up in this with a cup of tea and a good book, while the rain beats down on the windows outside. I want it rolled up in my backpack to wrap around myself whenever the fancy takes me.

I love me a picnic, and I would love to picnic on this blanket. It just looks absolutely delightful, and the customisation options kind of blow my mind a little. I'd definitely go for the grey leather picnic strap, it looks so soft and lovely. It'd be perfect for autumn and winter picnics.

Scottish Made Lambswool Scarf in Persevere Flint Grey Tartan
It's a bit chilly and it's raining as I write this, and honestly I just want this scarf draped around me? It sounds divine and looks gorgeous and effortlessly stylish, plus it's grey so will match my 80% black wardrobe.

Basically, it's adorable and I want to drink my tea out of this on long autumn and winter evenings, please. I'm imagining myself drinking something strong and smoky and slightly sweet like my At Home in Elorin blend inspired by Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.

I would get this for my sister and my wee nephew who's still brewing. It's just so cute, and I love the idea of natural teething toys. I'd pick the fawn herringbone as it's so gorgeous, perfect for snuggling up for reading time with my nephew.

  4. Love the mustard blanket. I`m trying to buy from more sustainable brands, and recycling old materials seems like such an easy way to be ethical.

  7. I love that mustard blanket, such an autumnal feel. Blankets are great, autumn for me makes me excited for all the layers and blankets. I have a grey soft blanket it’s thick heavy and so cosy xx

  8. I love blankets, especially in autumn and winter on chilly evenings. I actually bought a new one a couple of days ago. It is faux fur and it is sooooo soft and snug :)
