The color was not as bright as I expected, both shade of purple were greyish in tone. The blanket was thinner than I thought it would be, however, it is light and warm. My daughter find it soft and likes it, it is generously sized as well.
I bought these blankets for my son's bunk bed + trundle bed and find that they come in really handy. Light weight but very warm and cozy. He does not like to be hot at night but this is light enough but still keeps him warn in bed at night. Great quality stitching on these blankets.
We were so pleased to get this bright colored, very soft, plush blanket in the mail -- until we washed it -- and even after 6 washings and dryings, it is covered with shedded pills from the plush, all over. Returned and will find a better value. This blanket is not worth buying!
