Frankly, i see no reason to go a lot more high-end for a cotton blanket whpen it's possible to find one as soft and prettily textured as this one. It layers perfectly. The weave of the blanket doesn't make it any more prone to snags than blankets made by B--- , ETC. This blanket is not made from combed Egyptian or American Supima cotton, which makes it only slightly less soft. Probably the best kudo forthis one is that our family -- in the process of moving our kid to school --had to sleep on the floor for 9 days, waiting for our mover to get it all figured out (another story). This blanket was used as a bottom layer for a homemade sleeping blanket and held up to the task without pilling, shredding or snagging. I haven't laundered the blanket yet, but it arrived plenty large to allow for any shrinkage. I wasn't paid to write this review -- and can still highly encourage you to consider choosing this product.
This blanket has a nice silky look and feel. It is generously sized. The sage green color I chose was exactly as I expected. I bought this product because I needed a new blanket for a guest bed that I had created from two twins. The only other cover I have is a home-made quilt that doesn't quite fit the bed, so it is really nice that this blanket is pretty enough to not be covered by a bedspread or comforter. It is light-weight. I'm not going to be sleeping in that bed so I won't be able to say what climate/season it is good for, but it looks great and surely will be comfortable for spring/fall weather and air-conditioned interiors. Maybe for a Northern winter an extra layer will be needed.
I've been using this product in White for almost a year and it still looks and feels as goog as new even rhough my cats and a dog sleep on it daily. I like the simple minmalist look that does not overdecorate my bedroom and gives the room a hotel-like-atomosphere while woven texture gives a warm, cozy feel at the same time. Spills and spots washes off easily. I would buy one for my mom if she didn't live overseas
