Upcycled Wool Blanket Ideas

I adore vintage wool blankets and am always on the lookout for them when op shopping. I have enough for every bed in the house and a couple spare for the couch in winter.  They are just so toasty and beautiful to look at

There are so many other ways they can be used though and here is a list of some upcycled wool blanket ideas I’ve seen recently.

My top tip is to check out the dog baskets!  Yes I’ve spotted a few in good condition there.
