The Harkla products are such great quality. The fabric is so soft and thick. My daughter had been using a different color for over a year and no sign of wear was there at all. No pilling or anything. This blanket cover is constantly used, dragged around and even slept on by animals on her bed. The only minor critique I could give is that the lable style tabs that are sewn inside for tying the blanket to aren't super strong. I think part of the problem is that the blanket only has a single string to tie to them (two would make it much easier). In order to tighten the ties to the label loops you have to pull pretty hard and the labels feel like they are coming loose in a few places. Honestly though, this doesn't effect the overall effectiveness of the blanket. It is still such a God send to us. Has helped my daughter so much.
