After reading all of the positive reviews, I purchased this blanket to use as a comforter in my son's room. Before using, I washed it seperately & machine dried it for only about 10 min to remove any wrinkles. After removing from the dryer, there appeared to be white fuzz all over it (very noticable on black). While picking off the fuzz, it became apparent that it was the polyfill stuffing coming out through the blanket. There were even a few small pinholes where cotton ball - sized clumps had pulled out through the fabric. I am so surprised that this had not happened to anyone else, unless they used the blanket without washing first. If I could remove the fuzz, I would consider keeping it, but as you pull it off, more stuffing continues to come out. Unfortunately, this one is going back.
This is a beautiful soft blanket but it sheds. The filling comes out of the blanket and makes a big mess. On mine it comes out only on the stripe side but even putting it in the dryer does not help. If you used a lint remover you would use all the paper on the roller and still have the filling coming out. I can't recommend this blanket to anyone.
Beautiful fit, perfect finish, and wonderful weight on this comforter. I thought "Luxurious" might be stretching it until it arrived and I got to enjoy it. It was more than worth the money I spent on it. It is a generous Cal King size. Long enough, wide enough, and not overpoweringly heavy. The color is beautiful (taupe), and really looks rich on the bed against my chocolate sheets, shams and dust ruffle. I couldn't be happier. And no flying feathers!
I just ordered and received this blanket. I cannot tell you what a beautiful blanket it is. It is very well made, soft, luxurious, just like the title says. I think the price for this blanket is outstanding. This blanket is warm like a down blanket and really you could almost really use it as your "main" blanket on your bed in lieu for a comforter. Well worth the price.
Was looking for a replacement for a down blanket that we had for years. This one (down alternative)turned out to be a little too warm for our Southern climate and the cover was almost immediately "trashed" by our pets. Cover was very easily snagged/pulled. It does wash easily and would work if no "traffic" on its surface.
It arrived with other items I ordered even though the tracking did not have it arriving for 3 more days. Very odd. I could not tell from the pictures that there are stripes in the shiny side of the blanket, good thing it is reversible with a plain side.
Okay I was a little worried at first having never owned a down alternative anything before but it was one of those things either try it or deal with the snags in the regular blankets and that made me a little nuts so I ordered this beauty and man oh man and I thrilled I did! It is warm and soft and fluffy and I LOVE that it is so lightweight that I honestly don't feel it while I sleep. I have a King size bed and I ordered the King but I should have gotten the California King so I had a little more to tuck in but aside from that personal preference of mine it exceeded my every expectation. I will be ordering one for every bed in my house.
Since I'm allergic to feathers, I figured perhaps a down alternative would be the answer for me. That may be the case, however, this blanket was "not the one"! I found that it doesn't keep you warm in the winter, (which is what I purchased it for). As a matter of fact, I found that my hands and feet felt clammy the two nights I used it. It will be returned!!!
