This blanket is absolutely perfect. I have purchased 3 so far and they are all great. I love that they are lightweight, warm enough for me for an Ohio winter, and they look great even after being washed in super hot temp. (dust mites only die in super hot temp over 120degrees) I wash these often due to dust allergies for myself and my kids, they have held up very nicely.

Deliciously cuddly blanket became my instant favorite. I launder my bed linens weekly, due to allergies, and these blankets (I now have 3, & want another) have held up very well. No pilling, minimal lint. I was surprised at the texture when they first arrived, because they are furry rather than fuzzy (longer plush than I expected), but after washing once they softened up wonderfully. I'm considering using them without a top sheet, since they are so cozy. The only problem is that my cat loves them, too, and 'makes bread' whenever he gets access to them.

I am very happy with this blanket. It's not super thick or soft (at least out of the package) but it is quite warm and much softer after a washing with laundry softer and dryer softener sheets. I use it with my summer quilt so that I don't need a down comforter (allergies) and it's been very comfortable. For the price, I think it is an excellent buy.

So far so good. Nice and warm. Very similar to my down blanket - lightweight yet very warm. Would not recommend down, feathers everywhere after a few washings - not to mention the allergy factor that I did not consider. Color was nice - wish there were more colors to choose from as I would purchase another blanket.

This is the perfect blanket for folks who want to be warm and prefer not to be weighed down by heavy wool or cotten blankets and quilts. It's soft to the touch, washes and dries easily, and is a beautiful dusky lilac color. It's a great down alternative for those of us with allergies, and the price is perfect., too! The only drawback from my perspective is the length. It's standard and will work for most mattresses, but my mattress is one that requires deep pockets on sheets and a few more inches in the length of this blanket would give me a little more slack..

The winter nights in my part of Georgia vary in temperature so much that it can be hard to know what blankets to use when making the bed. The lows can range from the 30's and below to 60's and above- in the space of a single week. Layering is a must, if you want to be warm enough without overheating. This blanket is just the ticket for that. Not too hot for the warmer nights by itself, and just the right amount of loft with a bedspread or blanket on the coldest nights. If it were down, it would probably be even more comfortable all year round. However I chose this to replace a lightweight down comforter due to allergies, and have not been dissapointed.

This blanket arrived in a timely manner, just like we have come to expect from Overstock. It is so soft and light weight; it is the perfect all year round blanket for here in Florida. The color is right on spot; we ordered the spa green. We did wash it before putting it on the guest room bed and it came out perfect. We like that the blanket has a "down alternative" fill so we do not have to worry about possible allergies of our guests.

I have orderer this blanket twice before, one for me and one for my son who has allergies. What I like about it the most is that it is light weight, yet keeps you warm. I only use a sheet and this blanket all year long and in the winter it's all I need even with keeping my thermostat on 65. I hate having heavy blankets on me that make me sweat. This is perfect. Light, comfortable and keeps you very warm. I have now ordered one for my 83 yr. old mother as a Xmas gift because she had occasion to sleep in my son's bed with this blanket and she was very impressed. I recommend it highly.

I bought this blanket as an extra for when my mother-in-law was visiting. It turned out to be great!!! My mother-in law has allergies and the blanket turned out to be so soft and lightweight, she loved it. It is modern looking and pleasing to the eye, I now use it as my coverlet on my bed and it gives the room a very trendy look.

The only part of this experiment I have not figured out is whether I can easily wash and dry this king size down blanket in my new large capacity front loader washer and dryer. I plan to when it needs cleaning and pray it goes well as I can not afford dry cleaning. Love the rich gold color (looks better than photo) and quality seems good. It was ordered and arrived in 2 days. WOW! and to know it was made in the great USA.. even better! last week I had ordered 2 twin size down blankets ( same name brand ,but the subtle striped boxed pattern ) in the prettiest shade of blue. Those 2 blankets now lay on top of this new king size blanket. I can easily wash the twin blankets (separately if needed) more often since my kitty snuggles up with us in bed and I have allergies. With the 2nd king size down blanket now underneath the 2 twins, I was able to take the cotton blanket and cotton coverlet off the bed. One less layer, alot lighter weight to make my chronic swollen ankle feel better and oh so comfy warm.... easy to make up the bed each morning and it looks very pretty with the 2 colors showing, the lovely satin trim and of course color coordinating decorative bed pillows. I am donating my heavy, impossible to wash & dry poly fill comforter to Goodwill... never will buy one of those again!

I bought two of these to replace some down blankets because I have a down allergy. They are OK, not great. The fabric is somewhat course. In addition, be aware that the queen size is actually a full/queen size. Because of this they run small so if you have a deep mattress they don't have enough width to tuck them in. I would recommend buying the king size for a queen mattress. These blankets are made in China.

I purchased the sea green alternative blanket. I cannot have heavy blankets weighing down on my legs due to a medical condition. I am also allergic to down. This is just perfect for me, I can be warm without the weight and suffer no allergies. I highly recommend this product, I would give it 5 stars if there wer more colors available.

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.

I am a down junkie but also discovering an allergy to down so I'm moving over the down alternatives. I got this for a blanket for my bed. It is not oversized at all, so don't expect extra on the sides. It has two seams to line it up on the bed and the blanket is extremely thin and lightweight. No "loft". But the microfiber cover is very soft, and the baffles provide a level of warmth I did not expect looking at it. The satin border around it is a little chintzy but appropriate for the price. Overall i'm really pleased with this blanket.

Comfortable, warm and good for allergy prone. Will be good in the summer as well.

This is an excellent blanket! I bought several for myself as well as for my children. They are lightweight and wash very well. The blankets offer warmth without the weight and we have experienced no allergies with these. A perfect blanket to layer under a comforter or to use alone during warmer seasons to ward off the morning chill. Thanks again Overstock:)

This was my first Overstock buy EVER 5 (count 'em FIVE) years ago when it was featured in the throw size as a crib blanket (which we now fight over for the sofa). It was so amazing I bought one for every bed in the house and haven't had to replace any of them. The fabric is as high of quality and attractive as the day it was delivered even after countless washes on hot cycle with bleach (hello, two kids, many flu seasons, you do the math). The added bonus is that the microfiber surface and down alternative are excellent for allergies (no little crevices to hold dust) and asthma (which my daughter ended up being diagnosed with). Guests in my house always want to steal my blankets! I've been hooked on Overstock since.

Nice blanket - the color I ordered was perfect - went well with my decor. It's lightweight, yet warm. Good value and a great alternative option for those with allergies to down material.

A great buy for someone with allergies to many fleece and down products!

In the past we had always used a down blanket but suddenly developed allergies to feathers. My husband and I are now using this down alternative blanket and just love it. It is so easy to take care of. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this blanket to anyone! 5holer

I love this blanket! I live in California and don't need a huge down comforter for winter nights. This lightweight microfiber down alternative blanket fits the bill. It's very soft and cozy and looks great on the bed. This blanket would be good for people with allergies to feathers or down because it is filled with a soft fluffy polyester fiber. I ordered the king-size in white and it's very generous in size and of high quality. I haven't washed it yet but it looks like it will wash and dry very nicely. I can't comment on the durability because I just got it and have used it for a week, but the stitching appears to be sturdy. I rated this 5 stars overall. I shop at Overstock about 6 times a year or so, and so far haven't returned any of my purchases. Thanks for offering good products!
