This is an attractive blanket, but within a week it was fuzzy...not just starting to build lint balls like one would find on a sweater, but it was molting to the point that it's thinner than it was when I first purchased it. I haven't even washed it yet...I'm afraid it will disintegrate and clog my washing machine. Well, not everything is perfect. I'll try a different throw. At least it's a pretty color.
