I purchased one of these for myself several years ago. Although I have a double bed I bought the king size so I could have lots of coverage. Since then I have purchased one for my Dad, Daughter, Son and now my Brother. They ALL love them as much as I do. They are extremely light weight but very, very warm and the outer fabric is akin a a very very soft suade. I use NO heat in my house at night, and my flannel sheets and this blanket are all I need, and I live in Oklahoma and we have some horrific winters. I cannot recommend this blanket enough. You will not be disappointed not only is this an incredible product the price is amazing too. I have bought one in every color and they are all lovely. I have down comforters but actually prefer this because it is less bukly.
I bought this blanket to use as a bedspread in the summer months when the comforter is just too warm. It works great for that. The picture is a bit misleading, only because it doesn't show that the construction really is just like a blanket, with the satin edge at the top and everything. I wasn't expecting that, but it really doesn't bother me. It is very comfortable. The picture also doesn't reflect that the material is really a bit shiny, almost slippery. Again, this doesn't detract from the comfort, just not what I expected.
I ordered this blanket for our bed as a summer cover as our winter comforter is too hot for this time of year, and a sheet just isn't enough. At first I ordered the king size in blue for our queen size bed (Our winter comforter is a king and fits fine) but returned it because it was very generous in size and reached the floor on both sides of the bed. I ordered the queen is sage, and it is perfect. Great weight, very soft, hides cat hair when they have been sleeping on the bed. Both the blue and green are beautiful colors. I am very pleased and would highly recommend this product, especially for the price!
I owned the sage green one years ago, my brother in law loved it so much he asked me if he could keep it, reluctantly i said yes and for years I told myself i was going to get another one, finally i did and again am so happy with its comfort, i may get another just to have another color for when this one gets washed!
I bought the light green and the color is a very soft green. The problem is the nylon feel to it. I am not a fan and feel that an all cotton purchase might have been better. It is fairly nice looking and great for a warm weather comforter but in the future I will look for more cotton so that it doesn't have a slippery feel. All in all -- it looks nice on our guest bed and I will keep it.
This comforter is very light in weight but surprisingly warm. At first glance I thought it seemed flimsy but it looks well on the bed and is holding up well. I have two young cats who sleep with us and they chase each other around the bed digging their claws into the comforter. The comforter doesn't appear effected by their abuse of it. Have had it for a few months through a change of seasons. I may get another one just to have a spare. This blanket was a great value.
