I love this blanket! I like to have a fluffy blanket for every occasion, so I have at least half a dozen like this. That said this one is probably the nicest I own. It's soft-smooth on the picture side and fluffy smooth on the reverse. It's a bit smaller than I expected (I like to wrap myself up like a burrito) but it's really thick. Worst time of year to buy it, can't wait for winter! The picture is gorgeously printed too.
