Our light-as-a-feather, multi-purpose, Whale Blanket is made in Nepal using a centuries old technique whereby a layer of hand block-printed cotton is stitched between two layers of muslin. Use yours as a blanket, a flat sheet for little ones in warm weather, a travelling blanket, comforter, buggy or car shade, breast-feeding cover-up or throw - they are ultra versatile, generously sized and make wonderful presents.
Please bear in mind that this product is made using hand blocked fabric in limited runs. Because of this, we're proud to say that no two pieces are exactly the same meaning colours and motifs may vary accordingly.
Such high quality products! Will certainly be buying from them again and again!
The most beautiful muslin, destined to become treasured keepsake. Such a stunning print and gloriously soft. The stylish and considered packaging made it even more of a treat- thank you.
The receiver just adored these beautiful gifts. They make perfect comforters for babies and happily there are 2 so if one is in the wash the other can be in use. Came nicely packaged in brown paper.
Friend loved the gift!
It is beautiful and perfect for warm weather.
This is my third or fourth order with Willa and the bear and yet again I wasn’t disappointed. The recipient just loved the muslins and became and instant follower on instagram. Thank you Willa and the Bear for such great service yet again!
My daughter loves her blankie. The satin is great for sensory. Thank you!!
Absolutely adorable love these so much perfect for gifts
Putting together a baby layette for my daughter and the choice was to go to Willa & Bear. So lovely for any baby
I was gifted one of these when one of my babies were born now it’s my go to gift for newborns!
Just such a lovely special present for a newborn - especially the monogrammed ones
Best present ever - not only for newborns but for any young child.
Such a beautiful, soft blanket with many different uses.
I LOVE my muslin towel and so does my 2 year old. It is so soft, dries really quickly and is ultra absorbent. I didn't think the fabric would be as good as normal towelling but if anything it's better. The hood is also a really good size and stays on even with lots of squirming. And it washes really well! Would give it 10 stars if I could.
Beautifully soft cot sheet and lovely design!

We are a small business making lovely things for small people
Willa and The Bear was founded by Hattie in 2014. Mama to Willa, Maud and Gus, Hattie knows a thing or two about the parenting journey and the stuff that helps make life a little bit easier!
We believe in quality and longevity
Every one of our pieces is designed by Hattie in Norfolk and made in small, female run studios in India or Nepal. Shilpa in Jaipur and Rojina in Kathmandu oversee our makers who are all true artisans in their field, block-printing and finishing each item by hand.
Ethical production only
We only use trusted makers and supply chains who operate completely ethically. No mass produced, anonymous factory settings for us which means that our products are invariably more expensive to produce but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We know that our customers appreciate this important part of our manufacturing process too.
Our female-led studios mix our environmentally-friendly dyes entirely by hand...
Hattie's designs are painstakingly transferred to specially prepared wooden blocks which are then carved by hand. The designs are then printed onto our fabric by skilled artisans who create perfect repeat patterns entirely by eye.
