We snowbird and really didn't need heavy blankets. We haven't turned the heat on once this winter. A bedspread wasn't enough, but this blanket is just heavy enough and warm enough for the AZ winter temperatures. We sleep comfortable and not too hot. We thought the price was great for a King sized down blanket. Note: this is a very lightweight down blanket. It is not thick, fluffy, or full of feathers. It is what they advertise...a down blanket. Be careful that you do not think you are getting something more than that. Not a fan of the satin binding, and not sure how it will hold up in the wash. We turned the comforter sideways on the king bed so it would hang over more, and the binding doesn't seem to bother me too much that direction. We also put a king comforter on our queen bed. It covers nicely. We purchased the white and the blue. The blue is a beautiful color.
Delivery to Canada was half the time suggested at the time of order. I was so surprised by the size -- perfect fit for our King bed. Upon arrival, the blanket was very flat in it's packaging as expected. I just fluffed it and left it on the bed to loft as it did within a few hours. And did I mention how warm and cozy it is? Well worth the price!
I've had my blanket for 2 yrs and I still feel like a queen when I make or climb into my bed. The blanket is 'heavy' enough for MI winter and light enough for MI summer. This is a little bit of luxury, even the tag is fancy. The full/queen is a great size for my full sized bed.
The stitching and color are nice on these blankets, got 2 sage and 1 blue. Cal King size is nice and large. However, even though I read reviews regarding this, was still surprised at how thin these really were. Thought they might expand if it sat out for a while, but it pretty much stayed as thin as it arrived...We use it underneath our other big fluffy down comforter and, with these 2 layers, we are toasty warm and I like the feel of having 2 blankets on top.
I searched high and low for a down throw to use on the couch. At minimum $75 each, they were completely out of our price range. I saw this blanket for a fraction of the cost and thought I'd try it. I LOVE IT. Even as a thin blanket, it's still got plenty of fluffy down and feels great. The kids love it, and it's even better than a throw because we can lay it across the whole family while snuggling. I'm ordering another for my son's bed next. Great product but the amazing price makes it a million times better.
I bought the sage color and it's exactly as pictured. As others have said, this is a very lightweight down blanket (not a comforter). I was somewhat concerned about warmth but it's perfect for me. I'm in Colorado and haven't needed any additional covers (so far). The description says dry clean (I guess because of the satin edging), but that's not going to happen at my house because I have two dogs. The blanket has been washed a couple of times on the gentle cycle so far with no incident--and the dryer fluffs it up. I believe some have mentioned that it has a crackly sound and feel, and it does--this doesn't bother me because I like my bedding to feel crisp and clean. I'm pleased because it provides warmth without the weight, and have purchased two others as gifts.
If you're wondering about the thin-ness of a down blanket vs. a down comforter; rest assured that they are supposed to be thin. ( This is NOT a quality issue.) Down blankets are perfect for year round use while Down comforters are for cold weather use only. Down blankets wash and dry very easily too. Our family has down blankets on every bed in the house. (Sometimes during our cold Minnesota winters, we will layer two down blankets for added warmth, but most of the time,a single down blanket is all we need.) The fabric of this down blanket is very soft on the hand & feels wonderful. FIVE*****(very enthusiastic)*****STARS!
I ordered this in a King size and I have no problem covering my king bed plus some. It is thin, but warm. I sleep really hot so this is the perfect blanket for me in the Winter. I switch to a cotton blanket in the summer. I've actually laundered this in the washing machine (extra rinse cycle) and then dryed it in the dryer (dry with clean tennis balls to help fluff and then dry REALLY good) and it turned out great. For the price, this is the best down blanket you can get.
This blanket has stood the test of time. We love it. It is much more useful than our big fat down comforter, which we save for sub-zero temps. It is just the right weight for the majority of the year. Looks nice too. I often use it for blanket and "bedspread." It is easy to wash, also.
I really was quite surprised with this comforter. First of all I have checked various stores and this was the lowest price. The blue color was spot on with the pic. The quality is great and best of all, all I need is this blanket and a light coverlet on top to keep toasty. I really like dealing with "my" Overstock and will continue to buy from them. Not only do I not have to spend my money on gas to drive to a store, but the service has been quite wonderful. Thank you Overstock.
I ordered this blanket in white which came in a cream color instead but I still love it. In Georgia we have very light winters but still cool enough to want a light cover at night. This blanket is perfect. My husband loves it too. I would order for my daughter and sons if I could find them in stock again.
I already had a queen size down blanket that I got from a different place and needed a twin size. I saw this one at Overstock and the price was so good I thought I would give it a try. The blanket arrived promptly and I have been using it for a while and I love it. It is very lightweight, but keeps me very warm and toasty. It is as nice as the one I purchased elsewhere for much more money. I don't think you can go wrong with this blanket. It is the perfect blanket!
I love this blanket and came back searching for another, but they don't have our size. This blanket is soft and snuggly and holds up well with washes. I've had mine for almost 2 years now and it's still nearly as good as new. It adds that extra bit of warmth when partnered with a down or down alt comforter on colder nights, or is perfect alone in the summer months. I really wish they had more in our size, since I'd buy a few to keep on hand. Well worth the purchase!
