Storybook Blankets from Uncommon Goods Are Perfect for Book Lovers of All Ages

There’s nothing I love more than curling up with a good book, a cozy blanket, and a huge pile of pillows. In fact, my perfect weekend involves spending all day reading on the couch.

I already have a ton of blankets, but my son keeps swiping my favorites to build his own little reading nook. So, my search for the perfect blanket continues.

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite classic books, so this adorable blanket is on my personal wish list. The blanket is decorated with imaginative illustrations and a classic quote. It is made of pre-consumer cotton scraps that are shredded and then re-spun into new yarn. It measures 60″ L x 58″ W.

You can buy the Alice in Wonderland blanket on the Uncommon Goods website for $75.00. It’s an exclusive item, so you won’t find it anywhere else.

If you’re not a fan of Alice in Wonderland, Uncommon Goods also has a Three Musketeers blanket and a Little Red Riding Hood blanket. Personally, if I had access to an unlimited supply of cash, I’d buy all three.

I’d be thrilled to use these blankets myself, but I think they’d also be cute in a baby’s nursery. I’ve seen several people use Alice in Wonderland as a nursery theme for their daughter and a Three Musketeers blanket would be cute in a little boy’s room decorated with knights and castles.

What do you think of these storybook blankets? Is there a classic book that you’d like to see in blanket form?
