I purchased this blanket a few months ago for our guest room. At first glance, the blanket is very soft and lovely, but once I washed it, the lint is overwhelming and impossible to manage. I washed it a second time to see if I could remove the lint but the blanket sheds lint non-stop. We can no longer use the blanket, due to the mess that it is causing with lint everywhere. I strongly recommend that you do not purchase this product. No one should have to go through this experience.
