I received this blanket, opened the box and there was no packaging smell so I put it on the bed that night. How nice it is. I am going through menopause and every quilt & blanket I have tried is usually thrown off in a matter of hours each night. Not this one. This is nice and light and warm and cool all at the same time. Any woman going through menopause will understand what I mean. Well worth it. I plan on buying more as this will also be perfect for summer nights with the the ac on. Very happy with this purchase!
