This blanket is heavier than most--very nice plush cut. I wish I had ordered more on sale. The sale price was good. The regular price is $10 more and that is just average. I will watch for future sales on this item and reorder then. The feel is very soft and luxurious--all of my dogs love it too! The colors are a bit wild--so, I wouldn't use it as a bedspread--but it works great as a blanket.
