My Great Grandmother Dorothy Nelson made this blanket for my parents’ wedding in 1979. It was used primarily as a cuddle blanket on the couch until the disparate fibers shrunk at different rates in the wash, after which we ceased to use it, but it came with us when we moved from Long Island to Upstate NY when I was 4 years old.
