Buyer be warned....I was really excited about my purchase. The blanket arrived and I decided to put it in the washer/dryer. I followed the washing directions on the label. Then spread it over my existing comforter and boy was I in it for a big surprise! The blanket has serious pilling issue and it is only after the first wash. It left many, small lint balls all over my comforter. I am disappointed and the reason why I didn't give it a one star is because I do like the soft/plushness of the blanket.
