The blanket is great for having it as a decoration (as in laid across the bottom of the bed) but it really isnt as oversized as I thought it was going to be. Also, the underside of the blanket (the black fabric) is in fact super soft however the "fur" side is rough and I do not like the feel of it. The upside is that it's a nice lynx print. I wouldn't recommend it because I've touched softer blankets that are not as heavy and are functional as well as decorative. If you want a blanket just for decor, is heavy, and not so cuddly then you want this throw. I contemplated returning it but got lazy and liked the look of the print enough to keep.
