I finally hit it big this holiday with a Christmas present my Dad actually liked. I ordered him a recycled wool throw that is made in Wales for The National Trust. No two throws are alike, as they are woven in random color combos. The plaids are soft. Proceeds benefit the U.S. affiliate of Britain's National Trust. Order from www.royaloak.org.
The very best part is the price a 45'x60' is $29.00
