I bought two of these blankets. My main use was to use them in my yoga practice. However they are so handsome & well made that they have become the blankets I go for when I am cold, or just looking for a little comfort. These are thick well made wool blankets that are just the right size. I am 6'2 & one blanket keeps me comfortable & covers me quite well while I am in bed, or reading a book in my favorite chair. If you are looking for a soft blanket this is not the blanket for you. It is real wool. It washes up very very well. I used the hand wash cycle, a wool friendly detergent, & a small amount of fabric softener. Doing this made it as soft as wool can be. The smell that comes with the blankets, at no extra charge, was very strong. However it was not all that hard to remove. I opened the box outside & left the blankets to air out for 3 days. If you are looking for a great wool blanket buy this one. Once the smell is gone you won't regret it.
