Very comfortable blanket and soft. I was worried that ordering a King Size would be a problem to wash, but that was not the case. It fit easily in my front-loader washer and washed and dried normally. It arrived with a "packaged" odor like most things seem to have these days, but the weird smell was gone after the first washing. It will likely end up being a year-round blanket for my husband and myself.. I find it to be warm but not too warm. I am currently using it with an afghan on top and we sleep with the heat set on 62 degrees Fahrenheit at night.
