I originally bought a different throw blanket that was black, but it was too fluffy and for whatever reason it scared my cat! Lol. So I used that for something else. I cannot believe how soft it is! It is just beautiful, very very very black. I haven't tried washing it yet, but I am very happy with this and expect to get more. If you want softness, and a lightweight blanket, this is it! Look no further!
I bought this because our dog has taken to sleeping on top off the bed. It's big enough to tuck in at the bottom and sides should you want to(I have a king size bed). Washes well. nice price. Would recommend. Dog loves it plus it keeps my bedding clean.
