This is the most interesting blanket I've ever owned. The fabric is cool to the touch. It's double layered. One side is made from fabric that's similar to mesh gym shorts. The other side is fabric similar to the smooth, moisture-, gym shirts that I wear. It's very soft material and gentle on my sensitive skin. I will say this... the blaket is surprisingly heavy for the material it's made from. I like this part because I enjoy a good hug from a blanket with some weight to it. This offers me the weight of a traditional duvet or quilt set while keeping me cool and dry all through my summer nights. The design of this blanket is really cute. The starfish and seahorses are adorable. I like this product. I am definitely a fan.
