I feel like whether or not we like a product, depends very much on our expectations and the use we had in mind. I really like Mexican blankets and having seen the real thing first-hand in Mexico set my expectation that it would be thicker and better made. I had wanted this to add to our camping bedding for extra warmth. I love grey too so I really hoped this would be an awesome blanket for these purposes but it's just ok. The weave is not very tight in a lot of places and there are loose threads everywhere. It's lightweight so I don't expect to get much warmth from it and I can't imagine this will hold up long, even with delicate care in the wash. If you wanted this for pets, I can't imagine it will handle much wear and tear. It came with no weird smell though and is soft to the touch. Although I'll keep it because it's pretty and comfortable, I will probably go in search of a better blanket once this one wears out.
The color is true to the picture. The blanket was a bit thinner than the other ones I've purchases in this price range. My main concern is with the stitching. I am certain I will need to sew parts to prevent the material from unraveling. The material sheds a lot and after a wash a wash and dry it was no longer 6' x 5'.
I love the color! In the past I've had siesta blankets before, so let me just say that it is a little thinner than others, but woven tightly (not stiff though). When I got it, it didn't smell bad or anything. However, it did have a few loose threads. They weren't pulls though so the structural integrity is fine. I'll just weave them in and snip them. I'm washing it on cold and I'm gonna dry it on low heat. As long as it holds up in the wash, I'd recommend it! I'll update this post if it does, so don't worry. (: UPDATE: I wash it on cold and dry it normally. No pulls still. I keep it in my car for overnights and cold weather.
