Your chance to own SIBOL Blankets!

Hi Ladies,

What a beautiful Knitted Blanket!


Time is running out to own these beautiful Blankets.  Why not pop over to our EBAY Links!

This lovely blanket was knitted by a member of the ‘Sunshine International Blankets of Love’ group, who make blankets for the Elderly. Members of this world-wide group make blankets and then the co-ordinator then distributes the finished blankets to Nursing Homes. This particular piece was made by a Lady here in the UK. All proceeds from this auction (excluding P & P costs) will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, affecting around 496,000 people in the UK.



Each of the 24 squares on this special blanket has been lovingly made by an Elderly lady in her 80’s who’s own mother suffered with Alzheimer’s. It is named after her mother ‘Mae’. The blanket measures 34” x 27” and is decorated beautifully with a red ribbon and has two gorgeous butterflies to represent ‘SIBOL’. The Blanket is made in Acrylic yarn and is machine washable.


Alzheimer’s is a cause very dear to her heart.

This Blanket would be ideal for an Elderly person, or why not buy it for a souvenir of The Diamond Jubilee for your child's pram/or car seat?


We have chosen to open the bidding at £20.00 to reflect the work that has gone into this blanket called 'Mae'. Your Link to EBAY
