This blanket is exactly what I wanted. I keep my bedroom quite cool at night, windows open in the colder months. I loved my down comforter in the winter, but I'd end up throwing it off in the middle of the night because I'd get too hot. This blanket is light-weight but surprisingly warm, and I think it will easily be a year-round blanket. It's over-sized, so looks like a spread rather than just a blanket. I love it so much that I'll probably get a another one for my guest bedroom.
I bought this because I was looking for a lighter weight down blanket. It is exactly what I was looking for. You can see the down in the pockets of the blanket if you hold it up to the light. The down doesn't fill each pocket, not a problem for me, cause this is what I want. Also, it doesn't have any crinkle sound to it. It was soft out of the bag and I think it is a generous size for my king bed, as compared to another review. The label on the blanket says "Dry clean only". I washed it and it came out perfect. The exterior is made of 100% cotton, with the satin trim. Cotton washes well and down washes well - as long as you make sure it is completely dry.
I bought this down blanket for my son who finds all regular down comforters (even the lightest ones) too warm. Its quality is very good, it is beautiful and just the right warmth for somebody who is too warm under regular comforters. Note: the lightest twin size comforters has 18-20oz of down and blankets usually have around 10oz.
Everything I've tried before was either way too heavy or too hot... this one is the absolute BEST! Warm enough for most nights and very lightweight. Very attractive and amply sized. On really cold nights, it's even OK with our regular down comforter on top. Soft and not at all crinkly or noisy. No escaping feathers, either.
This blanket is lightweight and warm. I would recommend it to anyone who is to warm with a down comforter, but still needs a blanket. The only con is that I ordered it in Honey Wheat and received it in white. The white blanket is bright and pretty, so I kept it.
I bought this king blanket in a rich brown color. It looks great as a top spread instead of a heavy comforter. The weight is perfect and it is nice and cozy. I have a velour blanket and velour sheets to complete the package and couldn't be happier with it.
I read other reviews and compared the other blankets the quality is great for the price . The down doesn't smell and the fabric does not leak feathers. the size is ample , I ordered a king and a full size . I will get 2 more. I am very pleased with this purchase.
I bout the blue blanket, and the material is a really pretty and subtle stripe with soft satin bunting. We've just started using the blanket, and it is lightweight but warm. It is also bigger than I expected for a queen size blanket, but that's great - it means I can have it higher on the bed without worrying about the bottom coming untucked. I woul definitely recomment this blanket and am thinking about ordering a second one.
I haved looked at down blankets and never wanted to spend the $$ for one, but this one was so reasonable, I thought I'd try it and was I happy I did. This blanket is perfect and just the right weight. We had a down comforter and it proved to be to warm for us. We live in florida, but this blanket is perfect. So well made fits the bed so well. Highly recommmend it.
