I have two lap dogs and with them both on top of this blanket there is still plenty of room for me to remain covered, to have hands free access through the sleeves of this they both get attention and I do not have to worry about adjusting the blanket constantly. I like to sit and crochet and with this I can be warm and still mobile. Soft, rich brown color and big enough for two like my granddaughter who loves to be rocked to sleep. She snuggles up in my lap asleep and manages to grasp the blanket in her hand. Safe, warm, and comfortable.
