Big G(r)AY Blankets are traditional knitted blankets with the unexpected addition of a stripe of Pride Flag colours. Every Big G(r)AY Blanket is unique. For when your decor style is traditional but also you're QUEER AND PROUD!
This Big G(r)AY Blanket is a traditional cable-knit blanket (in a 'New England Mystery Blanket' pattern - modelled off the sweater of a character in a popular murder mystery movie) in grey chenille, with an integrated stripe in the colours of the Rainbow Pride Flag at one end, using Alize Puffy and Bernat Alize Blanket-EZ yarns (100% polyester).

This rainbow pride blanket was made from an original I LOVE MY BLANKET pattern.
All I LOVE MY BLANKET finger-knitted blankets are perfect as a gift for that special person, or as a beautiful addition to your home decor. Whether you use it as a throw blanket for snuggling under in front of the tv, or with a favourite book; or as a statement piece at the end of your bed, this blanket is sure to feel as cuddly as a warm hug every time you wrap it around you!
COLOUR: Grey, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red.
SIZE: Approximately 45" x 52" (114 cm x 132 cm). Please note that chenille yarn is stretchy and that because this is a hand-knit item, size may vary slightly.
ABOUT THE YARN
Chenille yarn is soft and fluffy: It feels a bit like terry cloth and looks a little bit like muppet fur (but tidier!). This vegan yarn is light-weight but very warm and cozy. There may be some shedding from your rainbow pride blanket with initial use - this should stop once the blanket settles.
Because your rainbow pride blanket is hand-knitted, there may occasionally be loose ends from where the yarn ends were tied and woven in and have come loose with use. Because this is pre-looped yarn, the chances of your rainbow pride blanket unravelling are extremely low. Simply weave any loose ends back into the blanket, or, if you wish, you can sew them in with a needle and thread.
All I LOVE MY BLANKET items are machine-washable in cold water and can be tumble-dried on low (per manufacturer's instructions), but hand washing and hanging your rainbow pride blanket to dry is a good way to extend its life!
FREE DELIVERY and tracking to addresses in CANADA and USA!!!
All blankets are sent in Spacesaver Premium Vacuum Bags, inside a poly bubble mailer, in order to maximize packing efficiency. You are free to keep and reuse the vacuum bag for storage.
When you receive your rainbow pride blanket, it will be compressed and compacted from being packaged. Don’t panic! Chenille yarn compresses and recovers well. A quick shake and rub with your hands should fluff it back to normal. You can also throw your rainbow pride blanket in the dryer for about 30 seconds on low temperature. Do not over heat!
I hope you love your rainbow pride blanket as much as I enjoyed making it for you - thank you for supporting a disabled knitter!
