this is a great blanket! Very very soft fabric to the touch.. it is warm, but if you like the weight of a heavy comforter like me, you will need to layer blankets which i do anyway.. but some people might not like that. it is pretty thin. not fluffy like down. I got it in a King size for my queen mattress because my boyfriend and i are both blanket hogs... and i like it when the blanket drapes over all of the mattress only revealing the bed skirt. it definitely wouldn't have done that if i had gotten the queen size. i got the brown and ivory color and it is a good color, very similar to the color in the picture.
