Works great! We did have to enlarge neck opening a bit.

Love these blankets for newborns for helping retain heat until they are totally dry on subzero days. They really make a difference.

I’ve been using them for years now and I’m buying a few more. Yes, the neck openings are a bit small, but with a little snip with some scissors, to enlarge the opening, they have worked great. No fraying or ripping to the neck hole after I cut them either. They are easily tossed in the wash and ready for the next lamb.
Raising Hampshire sheep, the small best fits lambs around 8–11lbs where the large fits the larger 12–16lb ones. I typically put them on dried off newborns and remove before they are a week old, when the weather is real cold, but I can’t see a size large fitting a 30lb lamb as stated in the description, some of my week old lambs are pretty snug in them and are well under 20lbs at that point.
Great little insurance, peace of mind products for me, and they have held up over the years.

Very disappointing. The opening for the head is so small there is no way it would ever fit one of our lambs without some major alterations.

The cover looks great. Neck openings could be larger. Overall I would recommend this product to all.
