Our deliciously soft lambswool Pixel" blankets are each unique and feature the most beautiful colour palettes from at least 24 natural dyes, extracted from roots, flowers, barks etc., at the studio. An EcoPixel blanket is an amazing gift for a new baby, although toddlers aged 2-3 will also love the larger version as a travel/nap/comfort blanket.

Our EcoPixel baby blankets mean baby is literally wrapped up in a soft work of art. Each blanket has a unique colourway but the overall design is inspired by our fascination with digital art, Bauhaus textiles and colour theory. Each blanket is individually hand-woven by expert hands on our looms. We use a special technique to weave the blankets in two layers which mean the blankets are soft, flexible and thicker than a standard single-layer textile. All yarns have been individually hand-dyed by us, reflecting our passion to use local, sustainably harvested and cultivated dyeplants. We finish each blanket with hand-stitching which leaves the borders softer than using machine stitching. We are confident in thinking that you won´t find blankets like ours anywhere else or that have been made with as much love and care! Please note that the slight irregularities in weave, colour and shape are due to the authentically-handwoven and finished nature of the textile.
100% natural dyes including indigo and madder root and cochineal sourced directly from farmers on Lanzarote. Local plant dyes sourced in and around Anna Champeney Textile studio include oak bark, eucalpytus leaves, dyers´ chamomile flowers and weld flowers.
Washing Instructions: Cold wool/delicates wash cycle and very gentle spin cycle. Dry flat. Do not wring or tumble dry. A light iron when slightly damp gives best results but is not essential. If an incorrect wash or spin cycle is used the blanket may shrink or felt so if in doubt hand-wash using tepid water.
