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 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 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 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.
In my quest for a down blanket that does not shed feathers, I bought this and unfortunately I can't say that it does not shed. But so far I am ok with it since it is a beautiful comforter, a deep charcoal with beautiful design. The fabric does crinkle but I have not washed it yet to see if it becomes softer. Overall, for the price, it is a nice and warm.
I just received today. I was pleasantly surprised as it doesn't look like Zebra but more of a modern mid-century pattern. It is steel grey, which I find more sophisticated than the black. So I was happy but if you want a print immediately identifiable as zebra, and in black, you won't find it here. But this is a really beautiful blanket!
