I was looking for a medium heavy blanket, to put underneath our coverlet. This blanket fit the bill. I haven't washed it yet, but it is medium weight, well made and a TRUE king size. Often you order a "king size" blanket and get a queen. This one drapes far enough over that I can tuck it in, and still have enough to go to the top of the bed. Very pleased with the price and the blanket itself. Also ordered the navy combo. The color is beautiful. Was a little hesitant when I ordered it, but when it arrived, it matched our current colors perfectly! Great blanket, great buy!
