This is a nice-looking, pleasant, comfortable blanket. It's lightweight, but warm enough for the fall season in Boston. I expect it will be warm enough in winter, too, in a heated home. In summer, there's no need for blanket at all here, so it won't matter. So overall, this seems to be the perfect all-season blanket - it keeps you warm, but is also very light. It stays fluffy so far and is pleasant to the touch. I don't know how it will hold after washing yet.
