The Tula 3 blanket sets come in 38 designs to help you find the perfect theme to match your nursery. Options include one rather funky blanket and two not so exciting plain blankets in complementary colours.

The other two blankets come in an attractive Basil Green and Jade Green.

Constructed from 100% OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified fabric the Tula Free-To-Grow are hand-made, the body panel adjusts to three different widths settings and two height settings which could take you from new-born to early toddler.
