This beautiful hand-crochet lap blanket is perfect for the winter season. It has been hand stitched with FIVE strands of green, blue, purple, and pink chunky yarn to make it thick and spongy. The yarn has some wool and alpaca blended in for texture. This blanket is ultra-soft and stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. It is perfect for getting cozy by the fire. This blanket looks beautiful draped over a blanket or a chair or on the end of a bed. Un-stretched it measures ~34 x 50 inches. I would recommend hand washing and drying flat.
