This blanket was purchased as a present for my husband who wanted a throw blanket long enough for his 6' height, warm enough for chilly evenings and light enough to be comfortable. This blanket met all criteria and, in addition, is lovely in appearance.
I cannot believe the bad review about this wonderful blanket. 1st thing: it is Made in Spain! 2nd: it washes and dries-out great, without any change in shape or colors, and becomes softer and more welcoming for a nap. The actual colors are exactly like on the website, and the other side has a different, lovely combination. This was a Christmas gift for my husband, and he doesn't want to share it with anyone else. Also, it came with a slight odor that disappeared after I washed it.
The colors on this blanket are much brighter than the picture which make it look cheaper in my opinion. Also, it is very fuzzy, almost furry. Looks like it will become matted when washed. It might be OK for some, but it wasn't what I wanted
The blanket is beautiful in the picture -- but, I have to agree with another reviewer. It is actually much brighter than pictured, thus giving it a cheaper look. It is also fuzzier than I thought it would be, but very soft. I washed and dried it and it looks like it held up well. I am keeping it anyway, due to the softness, need and cost/hassle with return. On a plus, it is from Spain -- so, that's cool.
