"Absolutely Beautiful Blanket"

I absolutely love this blanket. It?s so beautifully made, the pattern and color are gorgeous. It?s not too heavy but it is very warm. It looks great draped over a chair and it?s so comfy to curl up with at night. I would definitely recommend this throw blanket.

"Such a fun, unique item for cool days"

Its as pretty as shown, and more on the medium weight side, which is perfect for cool, summer evenings and Fall days. I havent had a chance to wear it yet, but have tried it on and love it. Love the addition of the shawl collar and the zipper. I think Ill get a lot of use out of it.
