Vintage Woolies Blanket

R230.00

This classic baby-blue blanket originally came from Woolworths, presumably sometime during the 1980s (I’m pretty sure I remember that old Woolies logo from when I was a kid?). It’s in good condition, given that it’s probably around 20-30 years old, with only a few threads that have pulled through. The label on the blanket says that it’s for a single bed, but it pretty much covers the whole of my queen-sized bed, which makes me think that it was probably intended to be tucked in, as a sheet would be, possibly under a bed throw? Our bedding was a bit more casual than that in our household, but I definitely remember childhood friends who had these army-style flat as a pancake beds, with blankets neatly tucked in. I think things are a bit more relaxed these days, so I’d probably fold this blanket up and have it at the end of a little boy or girl’s bed. It could obviously also go in a more grown-up bedroom, but it would have to be one with very soft colours and furnishings – I don’t think it really goes with the more masculine aesthetic that the headboard in our bedroom creates…..
