This beautiful hand-crochet lap blanket is perfect for the winter season. It has been hand stitched with 2 strands of yarn to make it thick and warm. This blanket is ultra-soft and stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. It is perfect for getting cozy by the fire. The yarn is beautiful Alpine Authentic Gay, Tan, and Brown. The Extra Long Fringe is Yarn Bee Alpine Authentic and Romantique. Un-stretched it measures ~38 x 70 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.
