I washed my lovely, soft plush blanket for the first time this morning. It was a joy sleeping in it and I was very, vey pleased. HOWEVER, upon washing it in the delicate cycle and drying it on delicate I was sooo angry I threw the blanket in the incinerator. Never in my life have I seen such piling and it was on both sides of the blanket. How a product this inferior is allowed to be sold is beyond me. Not all "bargains" are. And, this definately was NOT. The blanket looks beautiful and the price was more then reasonable but it is garbage. Had I read the reviews from other customers I would not have wasted my hard-earned money. This is the first product I have bought from overstock.com that was no good so I am not going to judge the seller just the manufacturer of this poor quality item. Bottom line, do not throw your money away.
