I had read some reviews on this MicroCotton Blanket that weren't all that great when it came to washing/drying (lots of dryer lint, took a long time to dry, etc.) I had zero problems washing and drying the blanket and there was not an excess of lint either. This blanket works great when it's warm out (I live in north Florida) and we have recently had some 40 degree nights and the blanket was perfect then too. It's very large on my king size bed, but not ridiculously large. I will probably buy two more for my teenagers when I can purchase their bed size. Loved it!!
