if you re looking for a true blanket this isn't it. the word thermal is deceiving. I thought it would be much heavier than it was. I find it more of the kind a blanket you would use in early spring/fall but clearly it is not a winter blanket. I would not even call it a blanket but a throw. it was pretty thin. and for the price I was hoping for more of a blanket.
This is a nice simple, basic blanket. Cotton weave so expect a few snags over time. Not a soft super plush blanket but nice clean looking cotton weave. I bought the orange color to use folded at the end of my bed for when I take naps. Color is a nice light orange, not overly bold . Works great for me. And it did not seem to shrink much after I washed it... but I did not measure. Just noticed it still draped over the sides about the same amount after washing and drying.
Excellent service. The blanket true to color, well made, well packed and presented. I bought it for my sister in England. for cold weather. I tried many website until I remembered Overstock. com. I have never been disappointed with any or the products I have received from them.
I have washed this blanket 2 times and the lint was unbelievable. It was in the washer as well as filling the dryer lint filter each time. I had to clean the lint filter in the dryer even before the drying cycle was done. There was also snags in about three or four places. I have an old "nit-Pick" that I used to pull the snag through to the bottom. I haven't put it on the bed, so I can't say how lightweight it will be. I wanted a lightweight blanket, but one that would be comfortable in the 60's degree nights in Florida. Maybe after a couple more washes it will not fill the dryer lint filter. Only time will tell. I would probably have taken it back to a store if I bought it at a local store, but I'll keep it to see how it works for me. My advice - buy something else.
Upon receiving the above blanket, I washed it in mild detergent and cold water. When I took it out of the washing machine, it had big blotches of white on it where the color apparently came out.. I will not be ordering any more products from Overstock.
These blankets are great! So soft and comfortable. With every wash they become softer. I had one of these blankets which I purchased quite some time ago and searched the internet to purchase another. I found it on Overstock and the price was so good I purchased 4 of them. I definitely recommend them.
The blanket was a gift for my daughter. She is very pleased with the weight of the blanket. Also, she experiences many allergies, so the cotton is washable and easy to clean. The weight of the blanket is easy for layering, depending on the weather.
This is a nice light weight blanket. My only complaint is the weave is loose and it has been snagged by my dog. I did find another blanket on Overstock.com that has a tighter weave and works better for me, it was a little more expensive. I would recommend this if you don't have a dog on the bed.
