While talking to my Dad one day he was telling me how hard it was to find a 100% cotton blanket. I checked several sites and was impressed with the price of this blanket on Overstock.com. I found several on other sites that were 2-3 times more costly. I ordered one for him for Christmas and at this price I thought I should order one for myself as well. The order was delivered quickly. I opened one and was impressed with the texture and weave. Prior to using it, I washed and dried it. Upon taking it out of the dryer, I was totally impressed with the way the blanked "thickened" up. It was easily 3 times thicker. I put it on the bed and am shocked at the weight of it and how warm it is. I like to sleep in a cold room but this blanket prevents that. I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. If you are looking for a comfortable, high quality cotton blanket, buy this one. You won`t be disappointed. ***WARNING*** Clean your lint trap before drying. You will find a ball of lint about the size of a softball after drying this blanket. Of course I have a king size blanket.
