I actually use this to cover my sofa so when my sons great dane comes over i don't have to stress out over him (dog) sitting on it. Washes wonderfully time and time again. (I should know). All the batting stays in place, doesnt go flat anywhere, and hasn't faded Love this blanket...quality at a great price again from overstock.com.
I got this amazing blanket in Giraffe print and wow, it looks much nicer in reality than in picture. I was pleased to find that it's made by Northern Nights, they are the best when it comes to down bedding..it's super light and so warm I was amazed how harm it is with its light weight.. The color of the giraffe print is very elegant and very appealing and made a big difference in our bed room...this can be an excellent gift. Oh, did I mention that the price is unbeatable, you can't find this price of this quality elsewhere but in Overstock... I will order another one right now as a gift to my mom
I originally purchased a giraffe & a zebra. All of us loved them so much, I ended up purchasing 5 more. The King is HUGE. The color is deep & rich. They're very warm, but the weight is light. Giving you the best of both worlds, if you don't like the weight of a heavy blanket/comforter. I enjoy the down blankets, because they breath & you can use them for all season. Enjoy! ***.
I bought this comforter for my daughter who has a thing for giraffes. Animal prints can be tacky but this one looks bold and modern, very high end. I would have bought the King but that was out of stock. The Queen is not as generous as I would have liked on her bed but she is very happy with it. And last but not least it is nice and warm, too!
The blanket itself is really soft and beautiful. It isn't a giraffe print at all though! Not even an animal print!! Toile print instead. Did not return it because I needed it immediately. The paper that arrived with it and the packaging said "giraffe print". Beware of this if you have to pay return postage.
I bought the King sized down blanket in Zebra print and recieved it in a timely manner. It came well packaged in a crushproof box and then plastic wrapped. No feather smell noticed, which was nice. It is indeed lightweight, but precisely what I wanted for Florida air conditioned nights. The fabric is very smooth and soft, hopefully it will keep the feathers from poking through, but only time and laundering will tell that. I was happy to learn that this is a Northern Nights brand blanket, the brand they sell on TV. They are very well made and purportedly last for many years. The retail value is much higher than what I paid. I note that the zebra print is actually a VERY dark brown. You can tell mostly by the satin edging on the blanket. I prefer true black, but it is so close, no one could notice but me. It is a very nice product and I am glad for the purchase. Once I have it washed, if it behaves as well as the brand claims it does, I will most likely reorder in twin and queen for my two guest rooms. My cats gave it a paws up. too, and they are true blanket critics. Don't hesitate, your money will be well spent.
I needed something lightweight for the summer. Love the animal print. I chose the zebra one and like the other reviewer got purple sheets to go with and the look is really good. Quality is good. This blanket is perfect for summer months (I live in MA) and if you feel the need to have some blanket on you and want it light then this is the right one for you. I would recommend to others and if I had another bed in my home that needed a blanket like this then I would buy.
I am very fond of Northern Nights products and no disappointments this time. I got this zebra light comforter for my tropical style bedroom. It is light, pretty, warm, and yes, the dog likes it too! The fabrics is smooth so pet hair does not accumulate on the surface. No problems with down falling out like mentioned in other reviews. Great buy.
I have bought a couple of these now. One for myself and I have found them to make a wonderful gift. These are ******** ****** brand which is a great brand and usually sells for much, much more. I would buy what you can if they have what you need left. Very happy.
I have been using this blanket as a throw across the end of the bed with the Madison Park Dune Beige/Brown 7-piece Contemporary Comforter Set. My dog lays on the bed during the day and I flip it over the comforter to keep her from laying on the comforter (she's black, comforter is beige). It has been washed many times. It has faded a bit, a few nylon threads have broken (possibly for doggy paw snags, though) but is super comfortable fabric and was well worth the money!!
Bad investment. The fill comes out everywhere, Require me to dust more then I have the time to do. Also the satin trim is around the whole comforter ( ugly). I googled product replacement because I thought this was a defect , I knew I didn't like when I opened but because I was having guest and wanted to spruce up room. I kept it. Bad Decision
I wrote that I would recommend this product to a friend but wish there had been a Maybe option. Overall, the blanket is nicely made. The satin trim is a nice touch. The weight is perfect. Only complaint: the zebra blanket I ordered definitely looks brown, not black.
