I really like this blanket, the colors are beautiful, the blue a little towards the purple (like) and the rose and greens against the off white are beautiful. This is a thin light weight blanket, very soft, which is what I was looking for both for looks and comfort. This is NOT one of the heavy double mink blankets that you can sometimes find. It finishes off my bed quite nicely. I don't know about durability since I have only had it for a week although it seems as good as any I have bought. I am very satisfied with this item.
