I bought this blanket to keep in the car for my elderly father when we go to and from appointments. It is perfect due to its incredible light weight, wonderful softness and instant warming. The quality of the weave and the beautifully detailed edges make this a blanket really stunning. Every time I feel it, it makes me want to curl up with it, a good book and cup of hot chocolate. I spent a lot of time looking for something other than the standard size throw and this fit the bill. It has been an absolute essential for me and my dad this winter. If you want something you can cuddle with and get warm all the way to the bone, this is the blanket you want.
