Never received my order

I would really love to give a review, but according to the tracking number, the package with my new blanket was "delivered", but it was NOT delivered to my address or to me personally.

Hi Jill - I am sorry that your package went missing. I just spoke with Joyce and she sent a replacement blanket to you a few days ago. I hope you get your new basotho blanket soon.
thanks so much for your support. - Angela and Steve

Kharesta cobalt blanket

The blanket is so soft. It's made with great detail..I was really impressed with the booklet that came with the blanket and the story behind the blanket. It made me really proud to talk about it to my kids. I'm glad the blanket with so much meaning is available in the U.S.

best blanket ever owned

I needed a warm blanket that also was beautiful enough to look as good as my new furniture that I purchased. This is by far the best blanket - so warm and thick, and I can tell will last me forever.
