Love my blanket!
Yes, the blanket is thin and folds up to be very small. It is soft and feels a bit like the cotton jersey sheets that you put on your bed. Great for traveling or stuffing into your purse just in case you encounter temperatures that are a bit chilly. It is not meant to keep your warm like a down comforter. It is huge and easy to wrap around your shoulders or put over your entire body just to 'knock the chill' a bit. I am going to monogram my name on mine just to add a nice personal touch.
When it is folded and put into the pouch that comes with it, it is the size of a Tote umbrella. I would highly recommend it for traveling or to keep in the car. Great product! I plan to order some for my friends and family who travel or sometimes find themselves in places where they might get chilly. What a great product!
