This blanket looks beautiful; feels very, very light, almost like nothing on your body. The cover is made of regular cotton; I had to wash the blanket to make it little softer (new cotton fabric is kind of crisp). If the cover was made of sateen cotton, the feel of the cover would be smoother and silkier. This blanket was filled with 300 gram of silk. Next time I would like a blanket filled with 500g of silk, so it would not make me feel cold in an air conditioned room (temp 78F-79F).
