As a 40 year old "Blanket Baby" I am on the constant search for the softest blanket, and this is it! I was like heaven opening this package. I always worry about the softness of a blanket wearing after washing so I tend to not wash until I've used for a while. I took it on a weekend trip and there was a spill accident all over this throw! I was mortified. I put spot cleaner on it and the stains automatically started wiping off! The best part, after washing and drying, this blanket appeared to be softer! How is that possible? This throw is that good. I have already bought one of my daughters one for Christmas loving all the fun colors and am getting ready to buy a couple more for my other children. The clearance price...grab one or several of these before they are gone. You will not regret it. I found my new favorite! Sleep with the clouds!
