Poor Quality- nap was about 1/8 of normal fleece blankets and had a cheap taped binding. I am using these blankets as couch throws to protect from my dog and even that is questionable. No way would I use this product for a blanket. Save your money .
I read the reviews before I purchased these. I have ordered many items from Overstock and all have been fantastic. Theses blankets just aren't up to par. Hoping that several washing and dryings will solve the problem. They really do shed.
My husband wanted a fleece blanket after visiting a hotel that had one and fell in love with it's softness and warmth. I found this blanket, and liked the red color. It IS warm, IS soft...but holly heck it sheds red fuzz EVERYWHERE! I've washed and dried it over 20 times now, and it is still shedding like crazy.
I wasn't going to write a review, as I didn't want to diss Overstock, but they kept asking me for a review. This product is simply awful. It sheds like craaazzzzy. I had to constantly vacuum, my hair and clothes would have fuzzies all over it. Not worth the color. While I like the color of olive I ordered, I am just super disappointed that I can't actually use it.
I bought 3 of these super soft, comfy blankets. They are delicate and have to be washed in cold water. The colors are bright and beautiful.

I have to say thing blanket is amazing! I saw the other reviews about it shedding when you wash it and leaving pieces all over everything but after a few washes its ok. This is the softest blanket ever. I ordered the dark green and it arrived the same color as the picture. I love this blanket so much I am going to order another one. Would make Great X- Mas gift.
This blanket is perfect for the kind of weather we have up here in the Northwest. The blanket isn't to heavy, but heavy enough to keep you warm. The color is perfect for what I was looking for. I'm enjoying the blanket and know I will for years to come.
These are nice blankets but my concern is, the durability. With a 15 room inn, I wash bed linens often and the thicker the material, the longer life. Your blankets were on the lighter side in terms of weight and quality. Sorry.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I was disappointed with the sage color blanket and I expected a tighter pile. We are in the north and Winters are cold!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I would not pay more than $10.00 for these blankets.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was fine.
The blanket looks thicker and plusher in picture than it really is. Soft and OK in warmth, but material is very thin and not really plush as indicated in the picture. Less than expected. Keeping it because of the hassle and expense of return shipping.
I was worried ordering this blanket as my birthday present, but it was a great deal! After reading reviews, i did not have high expectations of this blanket. I couldn't have been more wrong! I ordered the Chocolate-King and it has YET to shed at all, and is VERY soft and VERY warm. I would highly recommend this blanket to anyone :)
I got this blanket to match with the set we already have... talking about comfort and softness. I love watching it with fabric softener it gets super soft.. and smell of goodness comfort. It put me right to sleep. So far it is has not shed or pilled off. I love it O, and the prices like always better then anywhere else.
This was the first "cold weather" blanket I bought this year. I am older (70) person, confined to a wheelchair and have found that I feel cold 'way before most people. I was dismayed when, (a few years back) I, who'd been a tough New Englander all my life, doing work around horses etc even. So, when at about the first of September I started feeling colder at night. I called my doctor, thinking it might just be due to my increasing and changing age and illnesses. I was, perhaps, pleased in a way to have my self-diagnosis corroborated. But, it gets earlier and colder every year. This year, when I felt it start I sent for what sounded like the perfect solution this year. It was, and it was this blanket! I is so warm and easy to care for that I am sorely tempted to order another before I am through today! I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It is warm, but thin and is easy to care for.
IT SHEDS!! I washed before using it and it FILLED the dryer vent and pilled up .I am so glad I did not put it on my bed it would have made a mess with my flannel sheets. I sent the huge amount of dryer lint back so they would have all the BLANKET. Save yourself time and energy do not buy. I brought and returned the sage one.
