YES!!! Even though I placed the blanket in a laundry bag in both the washer and dryer, the dryer was overflowing with fuzz. When I removed the blankets they were covered with clumps of fleece balls on both sides of the blankets. I spent hours with a razor scraping the pills off of the blankets. I was thoroughly ticked off that nobody had commented previously that they had a similar issue. I didn't know if perhaps the manufacturer had changed the fabric, if there was something different about other people's dryers, or what the difference was which was causing my blankets to explode and not the other reviewers. But there's definitely some difference and the blankets I received are horriffic!!!
