As others have said, this blanket has a nice tight weave, yet is not really heavy. I bought another on Overstock for less money and though it did have a tight weave it was SUPER heavy. This is just the right weight for what I wanted, a blanket for use over a sheet in the summer and with a comforter in the winter. As someone else mentioned, I did have one quality issue with a snag in one spot, but definitely not worth returning it for and since it will mostly be under a comforter it was not a concern. It is very soft and big enough for my king bed. No issues washing or drying, overall I'm very happy with this blanket.
I had read some reviews on this MicroCotton Blanket that weren't all that great when it came to washing/drying (lots of dryer lint, took a long time to dry, etc.) I had zero problems washing and drying the blanket and there was not an excess of lint either. This blanket works great when it's warm out (I live in north Florida) and we have recently had some 40 degree nights and the blanket was perfect then too. It's very large on my king size bed, but not ridiculously large. I will probably buy two more for my teenagers when I can purchase their bed size. Loved it!!
Very soft, I am not sure what micro cotton is but it is very plush, thin, well made

This is the second blanket like this that I bought. I bought one for my daughter who lives in New York and she told me it was very comfortable for those hot summer nights in New York city and that it was very easy for her to wash. I bought one for myself and have had it on my Scandanavian platform bed and it not only looks beautiful it's very comfortable.

It is not as light as a micro cotton weave would suggest. Its very standard cotton and thin, yet dense and heavy. I double it over and it is adequately warm under a comforter for 60 degrees F. It's an alternative to the typical hotel-stye waffle weave, which may hold warmth a little more than this one. Manufactured in India with simple cotton fibers. I think Overstock is making a pretty profit. But the item is a nice step up from their other options here.
This blanket is a nice mid weigt cotton blanket, tight weave, well made. I ordered the Hemp color which I am not too happy with - it's more a mix of sand and pea soup color. Not so pretty. I wish I had ordered the white but other than that a nice blanket. I would have given a 5 star but the colors are off.
I wasn't sure what I was going to be getting but I wanted a tv blanket. Something I could hang out in while watching tv but be completely covered by. This blanket really is great. I love it! It's lightweight yet warm. And I think it's going to be great during the summer as well as the winter for casual use. Just what I wanted!
