I was excited to receive this blanket for some extra warmth on my bed in winter under the comforter. The color was fairly true to the picture (I ordered the purple one), it is a little more subltle and not as bright as the picture but still a nice purple. The material is very soft, and the size (King) is perfect for the bed. So far it appears solidly made.
As usually, Overstock.com has provided another quality bang for consumers' bucks. I purchased the same red/taupe blankets in a full-size and a queen-size. Both are properly stitched, uniform in their colors, and seem winter-friendly without being heavy. I do not know as yet how well they will wash. However, based on their presentation, I expect them to wash well. Please note: This review is the same for both the full size and queen size blankets.
