I purchased the 80/20 wool-cashmere Bocasa at the same time as this 100% wool one to compare the two. They're both great. As would be expected, this one is a tad rougher than the cashmere one, but I wouldn't exactly call it scratchy. (It's 100% wool afterall.) Both could be considered light-weight, yet both have a nice thickness and weight to them. The size is perfect for a lap blanket. Exactly what I was looking for!
