This item is made to order. Because of this, shipping dates can vary a large amount. Once your purchase is complete, you will get a message from me letting you know the estimate time it will take to ship. The afghan will be made as soon as I have the yarn for it, and the custom/MTO items purchased before you are finished. The afghan itself takes less than a week to make. I have afghans that are ready to ship if you need something shipped immediately. I picked this design and colors because of the way they create a bright, classic look. I also chose it because this blanket will go great with current styles in bedding and house decor. The multiple colors go so well together, and can be a great piece to add a slash of color to your decor. You get a great modern piece everyone will love, with the high quality of it being handmade! This afghan measures 60" by 40". Why are my blankets different than most? Their high-quality craftsmanship and design. I carefully design and create each afghan myself, delicately making it stitch by stitch using the softest, warmest yarn available. The result is a luxurious afghan that will be a favorite in your home for a very long time. My modern design schemes go great with today's decor as well. The yarn I use is a premium yarn that is extremely soft and durable. The best part about this yarn is that is is machine washable, making it the best kind of blanket to have around kids and pets. The machine wash instructions are printed right on the fabric tag as well! The durability that this provides means my blankets will last for generations.
