So soft, so luscious, so cute --- looks great in my daughter's bedroom with her pink and purple theme. Very nicely made and washes in machine beautifully without major shrinkage. The squares are a combination of dark purple, rose, cream, and a bluish gray.
The advertising department must have had a good laugh when they labelled this blanket "anti-pilling." Even the factory package calls it "Pill Resistant." My experience is this: I washed the blanket as directed, in cold water (with Woolite) and dried it on low. It came out of the dryer covered with pilled fibers which did not come off by simply shaking. The first remedy I tried was a sticky roller which didn't work well; then I went to work with clear packing tape--no good. Finally an old fashioned hairbrush with lots of bristles did the job. I spread the blanket out and brushed both sides and got most of the fluff off. I estimate the blanket gave up about 5% of its fabric due to pilling. The blanket is in my washing machine for the second time as I write this review. If, after drying, it still pills, I will return it along with the baggie full of fluff from the first brushing. Actually, I may return it anyway because a lot of the hem came unsewn during the first wash. Too bad, because it really is attractive--vibrant colors and very soft touch. But unless I got a lemon, I can't understand all the glowing reviews.
This is a fun and bright blanket, and is very soft right out of the box. Great length. I purchased the red which all the colors are true in color. They pop nicely and work so well together. I love this blanket and the colors work so well with all my other colors. Highly recommend for anyone needing and wanting a soft blanket for any room or person.
I purchased this blanket in several colors to replaces the same type of blanket that I purchased a couple years ago right here on overstock. The blanket is really nice and soft and a mid-weight blanket. I had hoped that it would be as heavy as the ones I previously purchased but they weren't. All in all the blanket is still a good value for the price because it washes well and is pretty cozy to snuggle under. If you are looking for a super warm blanket this is not the one.
I bought the first one of these as a spare blanket for a guest room at a lake home. Very nice, the purples were a very nice color combo, and best of all, the blanket is very, very soft. A few months ago, the six-year-old girl guest in the room really fell in love with this blanket, carried it around all weekend, and I ended up sending it home with her. I just ordered a replacement last week.
I was looking for something bright to add a splash of color to the bottom of my mostly solid colored bed. It was perfect! I love the soft and plush feel. Great for cuddling or watching movies and gives the added color splash desired :)
