I gave the blanket a high rating because the blanket itself is fantastic. It's soft, warm, and lightweight. There is one draw back though, the tag that comes sewn onto the blanket says that you can only dry-clean the blanket - Overstock.com's description says you can wash on gentle and hang to dry. As far as the colors go - check this out . . . Overstock.com has two pictures they are using for this blanket - one which you can see when you click on the blanket to see the "full" description and one that you can see when you click on the "Quick View" link. Each picture has different color blankets listed. The "quick view" description picture lists the colors Cocoa, Sea Green, Steel, Gold, Terracotta, Lilac, and Eco. The "full" description photo lists Natural, Cocoa, Brick Red, Lavender, Sky Blue, Pink, and Sea Green. The color choices you have when you go to purchase the blanket are those listed in the "full" view photo. I chose the Brick Red color but ended up with the Terracotta - I think that's why everyone is saying that the red isn't red - it's not . . . it's really Terracotta!
