This beautiful hand-crochet lap blanket is perfect for the winter season. It has been hand stitched with purple, chunky, acrylic yarn to make it thick and spongy. This blanket is ultra-soft and stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. It is perfect for getting cozy by the fire. The extra long fringe is rustic and classic. This blanket looks beautiful draped over a blanket or a chair. Un-stretched it measures ~48 x 78 inches. I would recommend hand washing and drying flat.
