This is the second blanket of the same kind I've had. I live in a very cold climate and I like the fact that it's thin but warm. I'm not a fan of blankets that weigh more than I do. After receiving my first one for a Christmas present, I passed the word along to others in my area, and they have purchased for use or gift, and all say it's wonderful. Also, because it is thin, it is easy to wash, fits in a normal-size washer, and you can dry. I do suggest, however, you wash on delicate and dry on low. If you are hesitating to buy due to other reviews that it is thin, don't let that deter you. I LIKE the fact that it's thin. If you take good care of your things, normal wear & tear, you won't be disappointed.
