DO NOT BUY THIS! I washed this blanket as soon as it arrived as I do all my new bedding and when I took it out I noticed that the washer was full of lint! I put it in the dryer and checked the lint trap literally 3 minutes later and it was FULL! I checked it every 3 minutes and each time it was FULL of heavy lint. When it was finally dry it was covered with pilling and lint. WHAT A MESS!!
