We bought the pink, brown, green, blue and purple blankets for our kids beds. They fit both a twin and a full fairly well. There are remarkably soft and cuddly. We haven't had much of a pill or shedding problem so, we love them!

This blanket is nothing but LINT. Lint started coming off as soon as I took it out of the package. There is LINT all over my bed. There is LINT in my hair. There is LINT all over my carpet. And I mistakenly left my closet door open, so ... There is LINT all over my clothes This is just from having the blanket on my bed for less than an hour.
Never stops! I purchased three and immediately washed them before using them with my kids. Oh my gosh!!! I removed three pounds of fluff from each blanket. Then washed them again to remove any lingering fluff. Mistake!!! More fluff... it's everywhere. When my kids use the blankets their clothes are covered in fluff. The size is fabulous and the colors are nice. Other than that, a big dud!
I was excited to receive my blanket. The color was perfect, and it is very soft. But it sheds--badly. I am using it on a chaise, and both the chaise and my clothes end up covered in fuzz. I have washed it twice, and that does not seemed to have helped at all. And now I am noticing that all my laundry has fuzz on it. Very frustrating.
My daughter picked this out for her bedroom and it is exactly what she hoped for. She loved the "blue sky" look and the blanket is very soft and not too thick. One thing I would mention is that we ordered two of these in the blue color and there was a slight variation in the shade of blue between the two. Does not bother us but worth noting.
It's a cool looking blanket...with a swirly 2-color pattern...almost a faint tie-dye look. BUT I made the mistake of washing it with other items and little balls of lint were all over the place. I had to use a cat-brush to remove the lint from the blanket and my other items. If you take a chance and buy it, do not wash it with anything else....and be prepared to do some lint-ball picking.
I bought the OCEAN color for my daughters birthday. Not only is the color a dirty dishwater gray but it also sheds like crazy. I have had to vacuum everywhere she sits or brushes up against. I thought washing would help but no dice. I am amazed at the amount of lint that this thing produces. Do not purchase it. I love shopping on Overstock and have had no trouble with my purchases up until this point..Sad day that I have to questions the products now.
I am buying plush blankets for my massage business so I need quality plush that is not too thin and can withstand many washes. I received the blanket today and was disappointed that it was not thicker than it is. It is a little on the thin side and does not feel like it's going to last very long. I was buying plush blankets at Marshall's but since it's the end of the season there aren't any left in the color I wanted so I thought I'd try one from here. So glad I only ordered one. This blanket is probably half as thick as the ones I was getting at Marshall's for $5 cheaper. I wouldn't order another one of these. For my needs, it is not a good match.
