I received this set for Christmas, after postponing getting it for a long, long time.
My first reaction was that the blanket is disturbingly scratchy. I don't know why they chose to use such coarse material; it's almost like they used raw hemp to make it. I'm from the Southwest, and as such, have tons of traditional blankets, but I've never encountered one so scratchy. Luckily, this one has beautiful bright coloring, which almost makes up for the heinous texture. Make sure Josefina's wearing her nightie when she goes to sleep or she'll get all chafed. The blanket is also really long. If you lay it on Josefina's bed, it is actually longer than the mattress; you need to fold it over for it to fit.
I love the sheepskin. As AGR showed, Josefina wouldn't have had a bed, but would have rather slept directly on a pile of sheepskins. I haven't had any problems with shedding on my sheepskin, but I imagine I will soon enough.
The leather thong is nice. I love that they took the time to include it, so Josefina can roll up her bed every morning.
