Let me preface my review by saying that perhaps we are all biased by our experiences with microfleece, and new sweatshirt technology weavings, but this blanket does not qualify as "fleece" to me: Fleece means light weight and fuzzy.
This blanket is very heavy and seems to me to be better described as "cotton felt." It was fuzzy and soft out of the package, but of course smelled weird. I washed it before use, using cold water, gentle cycle and low heat to dry. It took 2. 5 hours to dry and emerged felted down, no longer fuzzy and only marginally soft: OK if you live in a cold climate area and want a heavy layer. probably still ok. I did't, I wanted a light *fleecy* layer to serve as a winter layer below a light down comforter and a solo light layer for summer. 
This is so heavy that  in SoCal in the dead of our lightweight winter,  I knock it and the comforter off around 2 am and wind up sleeping under just the flannel sheet, which is not really quite enough. I really wanted something that would see me through that middle of the night time.
It is not soft.It is not fleecy. It is heavy and felted. The best I can say is that it is not scratchy like the wool blankets, but to call this blanket "fleece" is really a misnomer. This is a "soft" cotton felt. It is not a light weight fleece blanket and to expect anything else will be a big disappointment. They should definitely change the description on this product, because it is really inappropriate.
The best thing I can say is that the light blue (which is apparently not offered anymore) is really, really pretty and is very wash stable with no fading or shifting.

This is the worst blanket I have ever owned...I bought the chocolate...There are fuzz balls all over the sheets ,coverlet and my taupe rug...It looks like there are bugs all over the place...And I did wash it first...It doesn't even have enough on the sides to tuck it in...What a waste of money...The company store stuff isn't cheap either....

I was so excited for this purchase! When I got it, I tossed it in the wash, as is my practice with new bedding. I used cold water, a gentle cycle, and gentle detergent, as per the directions on the tag. After just one wash, the blanket looked terrible! I have fleece jackets that have held up better than this after years of being beat up by winter rain, barn animals, and lot's of dirt! And this blanket is no longer soft at all, but rough and bumpy. The only positive things I can say are that it is true to size and color, and it does keep some warmth in the bed.
