It really is just like a hug! I bought a after a recommendation and I am sooooo glad I did. No photo can show just how soft, warm and cuddly the blanket is. I cannot believe how well I slept after one night, and the chronic pain and restless legs which usually keep me awake or at least wake me up did not disturb me as they usually do. Great value and arrived really fast. Only problem is….. My boy Surtees also likes it, good job it’s big enough to share!!!
