This beautiful hand-knitted, deep, brick red, lap blanket, with flecks of tweed, is perfect for the winter season. It has been hand stitched with 2 strands of yarn to make it thicker and warmer. This blanket is ultra- stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. It is perfect for getting cozy by the fire. Un-stretched it measures ~38 x 55 inches. The ends have been tied off and woven back into the blanket. This makes the ends more seamless. If the ends come out, you can weave it back in or cut it at the knot. I would recommend hand washing and drying flat.
