Sometimes things happen during manufacturing that creates seconds, especially when a new mill is tweaking the process to make things for us. It doesn't happen often but we still have to purchase the items made with the defect.
These five blankets that came in as seconds have been safely packaged and tucked into the back of the warehouse patiently waiting for us to come back to them. Personally, I do travel a lot with mine, it is my lap blanket in the work truck that has no ac or heat. It fits nicely into my sleeping back when we do cold weather camping, it weights nothing so my nephew attaches it to his backpack for this scout campout.
So that means you as a consumer really can win with the minor defects that just can't make it as a first full price item. I have personally inspected all the blankets and see only minor flaws in the knitting, no holes or broken yarn. So, you can get $100 off the regular price for small manufacturing glitches.
We have found the perfect little throw blanket that is soft, warm and lightweight. 48"x66" knitted in the USA.
