This blanket is very light weight and good for us, here in Florida. I was a bit disappointed in the overall look of it. It does get pulls easily, as the fibers are loosely woven.
I bought the king sized blanket and was happy with the generous size, as I wanted a long drop from the edge to the floor. We have adjustable bed frames and bed skirts don't work well on that type of bed. This is a very good summer weight blanket. I have not washed it yet, so can't address whether shrinkage will be a problem since it is a woven cotton item.
I purchased three colors (two sizes) of this blanket to use instead of comforters while we lived in the tropical Florida Keys. They worked well. My only caution is that they are loosely woven (even after washing) so if you have animals, like I do, they will snag and pull the yarns constantly.
