Our light down blanket was too warm on our memory foam mattress. We were sweating at night unless it was really really cold.I bought the king blanket in the grey - it is a very soft pretty color, and quite large, even on our cal king mattress. Which means there is plenty to tuck in. It is cooler than the down, but still warm. I have added a very thin quilt on the coldest nights (my husband doesn't need the extra layer). I don't know how it will be in the summer yet, and I haven't washed it yet. But so far I am very pleased with it.
This is the second blanket like this one I've purchased and I love it. The quality is far above some more expensive blankets I've tried. Microplush on one side, smooth on the other, and it doesn't mess with my allergies. Light weight but warm. I haven't washed this one yet, but if it performs as well as the other one I have it should last a long time. I've had the other one for four years now. The grey color is beautiful and has a very calming effect on the bedroom.
Put this on the bed and love the look and feel and weight of the blanket. After a few nights of tossing and turning in a 70 degree house had to put it away until cooler temps this fall. It was just too hot regardless of which side was down as the microfiber really holds in your body heat. Once temperatures get into the low sixties it will feel nice but till then this will remain on the shelf.
I absolutely love this blanket. It truly is oversized--it's HUGE, easily fitting my king size bed with plenty of extra on each side, which effectively ends the "cover wars" between me and my husband. We do find it to be a little warm for our Minnesota summer, but this could also be attiributed to our TempurPedic mattress that seems to trap heat. The blue is muted, much like the individual picture of it on the website. It also looks very well made, so though I haven't washed it yet, I have no worries and believe it will hold up just fine.
I'm in my 70's and have bought a lot of blankets over the years. However, this one is by far the best. It's beautiful and could be used as spread if so inclined.........cuddly and well made. I bought the "sage" which has a lime cast which is very pretty and generous sizing. Bargain price too!
This is the most wonderful blanket we have ever had the pleasure of finding! I cannot say enough about this blanket!!! Up until now, I have always had to use down comforters to keep us warm for the winter months here in the brutal Illinois winters. Those were heavy and could get us sweaty at times by morning. But this thin and lightweight blanket has done the impossible! I had purchased them for our beds to layer in hopes of keeps an extra barrier to the cold. But the blanket is incredible in that it can handle the cold temps alone! We have used this with another regular plush blanket and then with just a sheet underneath and it stays plenty warm on the coldest nights! I bought one for each of my children and for our bed. Then I told some friends and ended up getting some more blankets as gifts. Everyone exclaims how wonderful the blanket is and how toasty! My friends are raving about the warmth that allowed them to turn the heat down and still stay comfortable and toasty despite the light weight of this blanket! We LOVE this blanket and cannot say enough great things about its excellence! I just hope they do not run out of them on this site!
I was looking for a blanket which can also be used as a bedspread and decided on this one because it is bigger than the others. It is perfect, light, warm and big enough to end the cover wars! I washed it for the first time and it came out great. Very happy with this purchase!
These blankets feel great, They are very warm when used with flannel sheets. We haven't used them in warmer weather with cotton or percale sheets, yet. I think that reversing them may not make a difference in the warmth and they would be too warm for the summer weather. I would buy them again if needed.
