This blanket shrunk a lot in the wash as others had reviewed. I bought a King size for a Queen size bed, which turned out fine. As others have stated there was alot of lint, which points to short staple cotton and lower quality. However, I have not been able to find the open weave thermal blanket anywhere else and certainly not of the quality of the 30 year old blanket I was replacing :-(
I bought this blanket because my husband likes the open weave since he is always warm. The blanket is a pretty pale color, quality weave and warm enough for me.
