I thought this blanket was incredibly soft before, and then I washed it and put it through the dryer and it's even more soft than it was! I didn't think that was possible! Wow, it's sooooo soft to the touch and super heavy and warm. I think it will be perfect! It's a little off square, but I think I'm ready to accept this as a fact and move on. If I had to redo it, I would go with a 2.5 yard warp next time.
