I spent quite a while looking through the fleece blankets before choosing to buy this one. I wanted it to be big and thick like my current one, for which I paid £30 for and have been using daily for the past 2+ years, but that my cats have all but wrecked. At £5 I wasn't too sure that the quality would be there, but I was swayed by the previous reviews and so chose to place an order. It arrived today (three days after the order) and I was so impressed, that I Immediately purchased a second one. Forget the cheap price, for that belies the quality that the blanket offers. You will not be disappointed.
