I purchased this to be used as a summer blanket. The one I currently had although thinner, was too heavy to be used during summer months.
I was looking for a fleece material and plaid pattern, so this fit the bill. I was disappointed upon receiving it however- the blanket is incredibly thin. I have never in my life seen such a lightweight blanket- it's PAPER THIN! You do not really feel the weight of it on your body and it's as if you are wearing nothing. I used to use a blanket alone, but this is too thin so I use a flat sheet underneath. I sleep with a fan, but in the middle of the night I am cold and have to put on more clothing.
If you are considering using this blanket I think it should be for decorative purposes only, unless you are looking for a blanket this thin. I should have put in an RMA immediately but I didn't. I do really like the look of this so I will continue to use it together with another blanket.
