I just received the blanket, the product looks very nice. The stitching is well done, the cotton print is very elegant and soft. It is very light, so if you have a cushy blanket in mind, this one is not for you. There is one thing that bothers me greatly, and it has nothing to do with the product but with how it was packed. A queen size blanket shoved in the smallest box possible (I have seen shoeboxes that were bigger), so when I pulled it out, the blanket is totally wrinkled. In fact, the box was so small, that it couldn't even keep its shape and had turned round from the volume of holding the blanket. Tons of tape kept it together. So, the blanket is lovely but I will have to wash or dry clean it first because of the incredible wrinkles. Overstock, please talk to your suppliers and make sure the use the right packaging.
I am using this under a thicker comforter and it works great as it is a thinner blanket but heavy at the same time. the stitching and the material are nice and there is some pattern on it if you want to use as a stand alone item. Gives the extra warmth needed in the winter when used with a comforter but is perfect alone in warmer seasons.
I bought this blanket for my guest bedroom, I didn't want down as some are allergic to down. This has the feel of down. I would recommend this blanket. It looks like it will launder well, haven't done that yet. I looked at quite a few before the purchase. I am very happy with it!
I was looking for non-fluffy, down alternative for my bed so I wouldn't overheat when I'm sleeping. I'd rather add blankets than wake up in the middle of the night to throw off even a lightwieight comforter, which always seems too warm. This one fits the bill, is large enough for my new duvet cover as well. I still feel cozy when I wake up and it's enough that if I want to cuddle up in bed I'm happy.
I really like this blanket, the weight is good ,it washes well, and its a real good quality. The only change in it I would like is that it was about 8-10 inches wider, than it would be prefect for me. The drop on the sides is a bit skimpy.
I went by the reviews on this one. I was trying to get away from the down blankets that shed feathers. Now I have an alternative blanket that sheds fuzz everywhere. This thing is awful. The fuzz sticks to everything, so it gets spread throughout the house. Candice Olson WAS a name I trusted. Made in China...I should have known better.
I took the chance that something bearing Candace Olson's name would be quality-- and it was. Very light weight blanket yet warm. I have washed it several times in my home machine and there has not been a problem with shedding lint or worse-- the fill --in the dryer trap. I would buy this item again. My only wish is that it would be generously cut to properly cover a deep king size mattress.
This matches the pillows I got and looks great but it is much thinner than I expected. If I lived in a cold place this comforter would never keep me warm enough and the Idea was to get rid of my down blanket. Because I am in San Diego and our winters are warm it is absolutely perfect!
