My wife was kind enough to purchase this blanket for me. I wasn't expecting too much from it. When we opened up and I felt how soft the material was I was very impressed by the quality. We washed it right away, so we can use it on our couch. I truly LOVE the blanket!! It goes well with my decorated room I call The Prince Room, it is a great accent on my black couch and when I take my naps....it is very comfortable!!! Well worth the purchase!
