It’s incredibly soft and plush, there’s a sort of cotton filling inside the comforter that makes it almost squishy! But it’s SO comfortable, all my kitties love it. The only downside is that it stains pretty easily (even so they come out good) and that it gets HOT overnight. The blanket is pretty light but the filling makes it absorb heat. Even in 20 degree new york weather my boyfriend gets sweaty. But overall I can’t recommend it enough! I was pleasantly surprised for a cheap amazon comforter.
