Great quality, very warm, live on the east coast and was using it into the beginning of June (it is that cold). I find it usable when sitting at the couch but I'm not that picky, generally wool is not the most comfortable fabric, it it will keep you warm and sometimes that is the most important comfort that you need. Fairly heavy and will add significant weight to a backpack, be sure to think if you will need it before you take it with you. Red stitching seems to be of good quality, no fraying, blanket itself is very nice, thick enough to do it's purpose without being overbearing. Fairly large blanket, takes a little care for my 6'1 230 pound male self to fold. Smell is quite tolerable. Discovered that this company is fairly popular, you will find many of their products at army shops across Canada, so they are probably a reputable brand and this case they have produced quality. Would recommend.
