This blanket definitely lives up to my expectations. I always read the reviews first and this sounded like what I was looking for. I wanted something seriously cozy for winter, I always tend to be cold in our vintage uninsulated house. The throw is super soft and thick. Best thing about it is the size, bigger than standard throw size, you can really wrap it around you on the couch and not have your toes hang out. Color is neutral, can go with anything. Quality is great!
