Forecasts are predicting a sun drenched summer, meaning we Brits will make the most of the warm weather.

As a nation, we reaffirm our love for the humble picnic during the pandemic, as social gatherings have been forced outdoors.

And with the great renaissance of the picnic came the gear to go along with it, from quaint wicker baskets to carry our snacks to portable pre-mixed cocktails for outdoor drinks.

Any seasoned picnic enthusiast knows the value of a great blanket, but premium products don’t have to cost a fortune.

Rise and Fall have recently launched their own range of luxury picnic blankets to bridge the gap between luxury and affordability.

Made to withstand food spills and afternoon naps in equal measure, the brand’s premium merino wool picnic blanket is a must-have for those spending the summer outdoors.

The premium merino wool blend is durable and comfortable, with a 100% waterproof polyester bottom to help keep you dry. Wool is hypoallergenic, making it perfect for people with sensitive skin.

The blanket comes in three styles; Classic Blue Tartan, Muted Cream and Blue Tartan, and Aqua Blue Herringbone.

It also comes with a sturdy leather baby carrier with two handles and antique brass buckles. Tweetcore to the maximum.

The handy integrated peg holes in the corners also allow the blanket to be tied down, which may be necessary as the wind can pick up (even on the sunniest of days).

The best part? You can get them for up to 50% less than you’d pay from other luxury brands, due to Rise and Fall’s partnership model with the manufacturer.

While the blankets may seem expensive, they are surprisingly affordable at £65 each.

Compared to £103 for a similar style at Tartan Blanket Co or £125 at Fortnum and Mason, neither of which are made with Merino, that’s a huge savings.
