Salmon Blanket in two colors and full size

I purchased the black and grey version of this blanket at a charity auction in March 2008. My daughters (7 and 10) love this and I often find one of them curled up under it. It's physically light and very warm and comfortable; perfect for your lap or over your shoulders. Eric Storm
