These blankets are large, soft, and the embroidery is beautifully done. The one I chose was the cream/ivory blanket. I had my neighbor's name embroidered with the metallic silver thread, which is a very nice combination. Just enough shimmer. Very bridal, too, for anyone with family/friends getting married. Anyhow, she just loved it! She got a little choked up. And then she went home and texted me that she was taking a nap....with her new blanket! :) One more thing I would like to add, these blankets wash and dry very well. I have washed mine several times and it looks as great as the day I received it.
