I purchased this adorable blanket for my daughter's birthday and it's perfect. It is exactly as the picture depicts, open tail and open back. Picture it as a sleeping bag for your lower body and a blanket for the rest of you. The fourth picture in the seller's slide show is the best to give you an idea. It's warm but open so it allows you to move around and is not restricting at all.
The color is a gorgeous ocean blue and I just love it. I think I'll be putting this on my gift list, I dont know a single person who wouldn't adore it. Recommended, great price, great product l. (Posted on 10/29/16)
This was a gift for my 14 year old niece, and she loves it! It does kind of bind your feet together, which you could probably avoid by not putting them all the way to the top of the tail. (Posted on 10/28/16)
LOVED IT. I ordered an adult blanket, and I was very satisfied!! This order arrived on time, and this well-made blanket is roomy enough for one's feet to fit in the tail. It is extremely comfortable as well! (Posted on 10/26/16)
The blanket design is very very adorable, it looks kind of like real fish/mermaid scales with the way it was made. It is very well made. It fits my daughter perfectly. The bottom of the fin is open so that you could put your feet there if you wanted too. The yarn is surprisingly soft, and feels very nice to the touch. The tail is very nice and flares out well.

I have been so pleased with the high quality knitted mermaid blanket I would not hesitate to buy the adults version if my older grandchild wanted one. I bought the child's size which has plenty of room to grow for my 7 year old granddaughter. The mix of colours in the knitt are fab and the wool is of excellent quality the Finn is quite thick and it flaps quite well as my granddaughter likes to show often. The price reflects the quality I could not take the time or effort or the price of wool to make as good as what you get with this mermaid blanket. It's quirky and quirky works for my granddaughter so I am happy. (Posted on 10/24/16)
