Soft and durable, made for use by the kids, it can equally be enjoyed by adults. Who couldn’t use some more rainbows in their daily life? Especially space rainbows! How magical?

Sure to cause a smile or two, this rainbow is stretchy, abundant and very warm! It can be used as a large wrap, shawl, lap blanket, a superawesomefun roof for a fort, picnics, meditation, superhero capes…

The pattern could also be easily increased in the border sections to make it more of a throw to snuggle under. I’ve been told by a wise old sage of 6 years old, that it is “guaranteed to bring sparkle dreams”. I’m not sure about sparkle dreams, but it’s sure to be fun!
