This is so soft and has a thin micro-suede backing. It is nice, soft and warm. However, it is thinner, of course. It is not as thin as something like the animal print blankets that are all purely microfiber though without any kind of backing. The reason why I am describing this this in the best details possible, is because these are the details that I hope that most people would talk about on their reviews too. It really helps when trying to decide what to purchase for your money. This is worth the money to me for a faux fur blanket. I wish that it were thicker of course, but you definitely get your money's worth and I also knew that it wouldn't be due to the price, which was fine with me. This blanket fits great on my king sized bed and is so soft and warm. I bought the chocolate which is very pretty, but I do wish that they would have had the choice of a black one too, since my bedroom is done in black and burgundy. However, it is so dark that you can barely even tell the difference. My only qualm that I have with this blanket, which you CANNOT see when you have it on the furry up, but you CAN if it is folded over would be that the backing is a little baggy. It is not stretched to the full length of the blanket. I personally do not have a problem with this since the quality seems to be good and the backing is sewn in well. Also, since you cannot see it when the fur side is up, which it always is, unless I fold it down before bed, there aren't any issues whatsoever. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something pretty, warm, soft, and large, who does not want to drop a lot of money into a faux fur blanket. This is great!!!
