Got these because of the price (value for money) and also because we didn't want a higher thread count. Higher thread count cotton (500+) feels more like satin than cotton, and is also too cold for winter. This is soft, snuggly, and it does get warm quickly. However the fabric is very slightly fuzzy, and as a result it attracts every bit of lint, cat hair and fiber like velcro. We made the mistake of getting it in white, which looks nice at first, but now that all the bits of fuzz from our fleece blanket are sticking to it, it doesn't look so great. If that's an issue in your house, you might want to choose another color. As for it being reversible, the striped side is much nicer than the plain side. By the way, if you use comforter clips on the corners, it keeps your comforter from sliding around inside.
