I have two of these wonderful blankets. I bought them primarily for the fall -winter season but have found them to be perfect even in the summer as a covering for the bed when the air conditioning is on. They are heavy weight flannel, wash beautifully, and have served many purposes. When my grandchildren have come over, especially the 6 month child, this blanket has made a perfect safe cover over a comfortor on the floor where he was beginning to explore his new world. It was soft, yet strong enough to stay "put". I love these blankets and have them on both my king and queen sized beds.
