I needed a blanket instead of a quilt or comforter as one of my dogs seem to be obsessed with polyfill :((( . I did not want a boring solid because I planned to use this as beadspread alternative. The taupe/cream is perfect in my bedroom of browns and greens. This blanket is medium weight and woven. If you're looking for a super soft blanket this won't be for you. A great price for a king size anything!!!
