I really like how light weight the blanket is, besides being soft and comfortable. I find it most comfortable when I'm, sitting in a chair and reading or watching TV and the air is slightly cool. It seems to take the chill off the air. It washes up very nicely and it is easy to store away when not needed. I would recommend it as a gift to give someone feels feels chilly easily and who likes an extra layer of warmth while they are just sitting around the house.
