I gave these as gifts to my mother. She loves the socks but the blanket is very "scratchy" and after you take it off it looks like a cat shedding with all of the hair from the blanket. I would rate the socks as a 5 but the blanket at a 1. Very disappointed in the coarseness and shedding of the blanket.
It is true what the literature says — Alpaca is softer, lighter, and warmer than wool or even cashmere. I’m delighted with the silky smoothness and warmth of the throw blanket and with the cozy cushion and warmth of the socks.
