As advertised, this blanket is warm and light. However, it is so full of lint that even washing it several times, the lint just got stuck to the blanket and spread over the sheets. I spent several hours to get rid of the shedding with little result. I would not buy or recommend this product to anyone.
I bought one for myself and sent several to others for Christmas. These blankets are so warm and cuddly that my card said "this is a hug" from me. They are amazingly soft, lightweight yet thick. You can wash them repeatedly with NO lint or loss of the fluffy, soft feeling. Just be sure to use warm or cold water and definitely a LOW setting on the dryer. Excellent gift for people to cuddle on the couch to watch TV.
This blanket is warm and fuzzy but it shedded a lot at first wash. I do not know yet how further washes will affect it.

I excitedly received this blanket today. I was hoping for the best given the great reviews. I took it out of the packaging, and noticed it was immediately soft and fluffy. My initial enthusiasm soon turned into utter frustration after I washed and dried the blanket, however. After following the care instructions, I went to remove the blanket from the drier, and noticed a severe amount of shedding/pilling. I pulled the blanket out of the drier and held it into my chest against my polo shirt as I carried it away. My shirt was absolutely covered in blanket material! I was shocked at the utter lack of quality of this blanket despite the glowing reviews. I've packed it back up, and will be immediately returning it and exchanging it for a different item. What a complete let-down.

This product does not even deserve one star!! Disappointed that Overstock did not provide a full refund. This product should not even be offered!! Material is all Lint, as soon as you the open the plastic bag- extreme lint everywhere!! Product is unusable!!!
This blanket is so warm and cuddly! I have never loved a blanket so soft before. It is so warm I hardly use the top bedspread anymore! It washes up nicely too! If I could give one to everyone I wanted to I would. It's the best blanket I've ever had! Awesome:)
Although, at 101-degrees, I have not felt the need to use my new blankets, they have been laundered and are ready for use. They came out of the dryer just georgous...plush and soft to the hand! I bought the blue, and the color is beautiful. They are exactly what I was looking for, and I would definitely buy them again! Yawnnnnn.....thanks again, Overstock!

Lint EVERYWHERE. On the floor, in our hair, on the pillows, bed skirt, the comforter, Husband's morning scruff, even on the dogs. The most frightening thing...We were breathing in those tiny fibers while we were sleeping. The most shocking thing...the lint trap in the dryer had less than a tablespoon in it after each session. I washed these blankets before using them, 3 times. Lint kept coming off each time. I figured by the third wash/dry they would be fine to use although I queried the situation as I put the blankets on and there were pills on the front of my shirt. And don't get me wrong; they are the softest, warmest blankets we've ever come across. But the next morning after cream colored lint had snowed all over my bedroom I realized my retentive side just can't deal with that and I don't want to put our health at risk for soft blankets.
This blanket is a keeper. It is super soft and cuddly, light weight yet warm. My husband who never comments on my household purchase told me how much he liked it the first night I put it on the bed. If you need a blanket buy this one you will not be disappointed.
Yes, but only if they are looking for a truly "plush" blanket (like stuffed animal plush). I was hoping for a micro short nap and density. This blanket is just like the covering on a stuffed toy. It does not lie smoothly under my coverlet (lumpy). I bought the king-size and the size of good -- very ample. I do not like the color (tan). Wish I would have bought the white. The blanket is warm and does it's job. Just not what I was thinking it would be.
Love the blanket and it washes up great too. We live in the Northwest and it gets very cold up here on our little island the blanket keeps us so warm.

I've been fooled by other blankets described as soft and cuddly on Overstock so I had my doubts. This blanket is like an adlut sized fuzzy baby blanket. Almost as soft as the **** shearling blanket that sells for $99 (I have that one too). I haven't washed it yet so can't comment on durability.
