I have a larger petami blanket for another couch and it's scratchy. I purchased this one expecting it to have the same feel, but its very soft. It's water resistant as expected too- I like it to help keep the couch clean when the dog licks herself, and so far so good.
very pretty blankets, I purchased the red plaid & the blue grey plaid last year. First of which both snagged within a week of use, they do wash easily, but definitely not waterproof. My bully has a problem at night and I still need to change all sheets and bedding in the morning as everything wet seeps through his blanket.
