I nap a lot; I mean one second I'll be talking to people and the next I have decided it would be a great time for a nap – so rugs, blankets and cushions all play a very important part in my home. So when buyakilt.com got in contact and asked if I fancied trying a rug out I jumped at the chance.
Before I get onto my lovely rug here's just a little more about buyakilt.com, they are an online Scottish retailer specialising in kilts, kilt accessories and kilt outfits as well as selling a number of Scottish gifts.

Blue Douglas Tartan Blanket Rug
When this rug arrived there was a bit of a scuffle about it, my Dad decided it would make an amazing fishing rug, my Mum thought it looked amazing on her sofa and I just wanted a nap – or a picnic, I can't remember which, it could well have been both.
The Blue Douglas Tartan Blanket Rug is made from 100% wool; it is approximately 5ft by 6ft in size, features a fringed edge and has been made in Pakistan.
The rug itself is made of a gorgeous thick wool knit and as you can see it fits perfectly onto the two-seater sofa (perhaps it is no wonder my Mum wanted it for herself). In fact I am pretty sure it is a rug of many talents as I can see it making a lovely picnic rug for the summer, as well as a wonderful throw for a bed, but I have to admit, for me it is just lovely to curl up under and have a snooze.
Made of 100% pure wool, this blanket rug has a completely luxurious feel, it is thick, warm and very, very snuggly – of course the fact that these blanket rugs are made using tartans, means there is a plethora of colours to choose from allowing you to get a colour you love, or perhaps you might just be able to find a name you have a link to.
One of the things that surprises me most about this blanket rug is the price, I assumed a pure wool rug would be quite expensive, but like the website promises they have prices to suit everyone and this beauty comes in at a reasonable £25.00.
