When I took the blanket out of the package I was very pleased. It was very soft and cuddly, the color and size were perfect. Then I washed and dried it. The soft and cuddly blanket developed lots of soft and cuddly pills all over everything. In the dryer, on the floor and still stuck to the blanket. Now I need to pick or comb all the rest of the pills off before I can even use it Then I'll be afraid to wash it again, cause it might do it again... What a waste of tim and money..
