    positive review  I ordered a large blanket as a baby shower gift for my friend - she was absolutely made up with such a personal and beautiful gift. The blanket was a perfect size as she will use this when her baby is first born and also as he gets older. The material and quality are amazing, so soft and carefully knitted. Can’t recommend enough! Thank you for providing us with the perfect gift and fantastic service ?
