I bought this because my husband sleeps very hot. I needed a lightweight blanket that looks as nice as a comforter cover, but is more breathable. This blanket looks very classy on the bed, is not heavy, is soft, and we both like it. Also, it's a better price than what Bed Bath and Beyond has currently.
I do not understand the numerous positive reviews on this item. Ever since I’ve gotten this it’s been shedding like crazy and had gotten all over my clothes and my bed sheets. I threw away the receipt because I loved how it looked and how soft it was. Big mistake.
I was surprised how much lint this produced in both the washer and dryer. I put it through the dryer again with another fabric softener, but there were still tons of little pills all over it. After I put it on the bed it developed several snags with normal use. Very disappointed. 100% cotton, perhaps, but 100% poor quality cotton?
It was on sale and I also received 100% CASHBACK in points. It was a great deal.
It is a very nice, stylish and lightweight blanket. It is not heavy at all and so soft. I like it.
