What makes our outdoor blankets special:

Benefits of 100% Pure New Wool :

  • Due to wool’s unique properties, it stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This makes the blanket perfect for outdoor use all year around.
  • Wool is known to be hypoallergenic, making it resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew.
  • Wool is antistatic, making it stay cleaner a lot longer from lint, dirt and dust.
  • Wool has overlapping fibre structure, so dirt sits on the surface, making it easier to clean. A good shake and it’s ready to be used again.
  • Wool fibres are bouncy/spring with good elasticity. This gives the blankets added comfort.
  • Wool fibres are very colour absorbent, keeping the colours fresh and vibrant without fading.
  • Wool is naturally renewable. Fleece from sheep is an annual delight that is a renewable resource.
  • Wool is naturally biodegradable.
  • Polyester backing:

  • Water-resistant, colour-fast fabric.
  • Durable polyester so it will not tear or rip easily.
  • The two layers are securely bonded to prevent dirt from entering.
  • Care instructions:

  • Our blankets are machine washable at home in a cold wash, which means there is no need for expensive laundry or dry-cleaning. One more reason to use it again and again…and again!
  • Other fantastic Benefits:

  • Generous in size means that you can share the blanket with several members of your family or friends at a time.
  • The blanket rolls into a bundle, held by a beautiful leather strap with a generous handle, making it compact and easy to carry.

We ship worldwide. If our system doesn't recognise your destination, please kindly contact us via email and we will process your order manually after checking the shipping costs to your destination. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some items cannot be shipped to international destinations. When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges will typically be due once the shipped goods arrive at the country of destination. Our shipping fees don't include local import duties or customs outside of UK and which vary from country to country. We ship via DPD to the UK and via UPS to most international destinations and sometimes use Royal Mail as an alternative. Packages to mainland UK are usually delivered in 1-2 business days. Packages to North America & Europe are usually delivered in 4 business days.

If you are a European customer, who has fallen in love with our collection, please keep in mind that on receipt of your parcel, you will now be required to pay your local VAT (on your purchase and the shipping costs) plus an admin fee from the shipping company and possibly custom charges upon delivery. Unfortunately, all of this is beyond our control and decided by the local governments and we have no visibility on this.

After an extensive discussion among our team, during which we have considered suspending shipping to the EU until the situation is a bit clearer, we have decided to keep the ordering system in place for customers who are ready to cover theses charges.

Please note that if a parcel is refused because of customs and VAT charges, we will unfortunately not be able to offer you a refund, as most shipping companies systematically send the shipments for destructions.

This is of course a very difficult decision for a small brand (especially as part of us are also EU citizens), but we prefer being upfront with our customers in these circumstances in order for them to avoid any bad surprises.


Our clients usually fall in love with our products at first sight, but if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us immediately via email at: hello@heating-and-plumbing.com.

We will either exchange, offer site credit or refund the value of any new, unopened product(s) purchased (apart from the regular shipping costs associated to shipping the item(s) to your destination), if the below conditions are met:

  • You are able to return the item(s) in question to us within 14 days of receipt of your order.
  • Unless faulty, your items are returned to us in a resalable condition. This means unworn, in the same condition you received them and with any labels and packaging fully intact.

We will pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect product or the item is defective). Please note that unfortunately we will not be able to refund the cost of postage, either of your original order or the return, unless the goods are proven to be faulty. In case your order is entitled to free shipping, the regular costs associated with shipping the item(s) to your destination will be deducted from the full credit.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

More information about our return policy is available in our Return Policy Section.

Craftsmanship, Local Production & Beautiful Materials define our manufacturing ethos.

Our collection is almost made entirely in the British Isles apart from a few products that are made in France (Champagne buckets & some of our dress socks). We work with local mills, small workshops and skilled craftsmen to produce beautifully made lifestyle accessories.

When possible, we ship our accessories in a light 100% recyclable mailing bag.

We can add a handwritten note to your purchase.

Simply send us an email. with your short text or add it to the "additional comments" section at checkout. We will make sure a handwritten note is added to the package and that the packing list doesn't show the value of your gift.
Our leather workshop can emboss your initials or a special text on the leather straps of our picnic blankets and Champagne buckets. See more information here or don't hesitate to send us an email, if you have a specific request.

Happy Customer

I absolutely love my blanket and pillows. I used them the first weekend we were allowed outside to sit with other people and they worked perfectly, even though it has rained earlier. The water resistant backing worker, and the bright colors really brightened the mood.

Dear Jordan,

Thank you very much for the lovely 5-star review. The bright colours you picked were the perfect combination! We hope you will have lots of lovely picnics and stay comfortable & dry!. If you want to, feel free to share your picnic stories with us by tagging @heatingplumbinglondon.

Warm Regards,

Damaged in transit

Horrible packaging. Package was thin plastic, poorly taped, and ripped upon arrival. Blanket was dirty upon opening. Please consider sturdier packaging for international shipments.

Update: Heating & Plumbing contacted me to address the damaged item, explaining that it was likely damaged in customs and offering a replacement

Dear Lauren,

Thank you very much for your review. We were unaware of the situation and really apologise for the issue.

We have changed our packaging from cardboard boxes to 100% recyclable bags during Summer 2020, as we are trying to limit the brand carbon footprint. The bags are eco-friendly and this also reduces the weight and the impact of the transportation on the planet.

There is usually no problem during transportation and we had only one issue with a bag slightly torn before your issue came up. We suspect the packaging was damaged in the courier’s conveyor belt.

We will send you an email privately to discuss the issue. Once again, we really apologise for the inconvenience and we hope that this will not prevent you from enjoying your new picnic rug.

Warm Regards,

The heating & Plumbing Team

25/03/2021 Update: After being in touch with Lauren, we have come to the conclusion that the US customs have opened the package, very most likely to check we were not sending plumbing spare parts, as the customer found an invoice for plumbing supplies (not ours obviously) which seemed to have been mixed up by US customs from another package. We love our tongue-in cheek name, but it has some small drawbacks :-)!

We are sending Lauren a replacement, so she can fully enjoy her new picnic blanket.

Lovely picnic blanket

Lovely picnic blanket - it’s pretty and looks good quality, although we’ve just bought it and not tried it out yet

Dear Lise,

Thank you for the 5-star review! We are very happy that you like the picnic blanket and hope you will get lots of enjoyment out of it as soon as the weather turns.

Best Wishes

Heating & Plumbing London Team
