You will love this blanket! Bought a new king bed after years in a queen and found that none of our old queen/king blankets would stay tucked in at the foot of the bed which makes for a very bad night's sleep for us. Don't even get me started on what I had to do to all of our new sheet sets to get them to stay tucked in! Maybe it's because it's a platform bed without a box spring, but this is all new to us. Anyway, bought this when I saw the measurements were larger than other blankets and it's perfect! There's plenty of room to tuck at the bottom and enough hangs off each side to tuck there if you want to as well. It's a pure white exactly as the picture shows - in fact that picture could be of our new bed. It's lightweight but perfectly warm for January - we're using one extra blanket underneath for the winter and I think it will be perfect by itself in the summer when we run the air. It's machine washable although it says to wash it in a commercial sized washer, we did it at home in our extra large capacity. It came out fine but did take a long time to dry. Definitely get the tennis balls as recommended.
My husband and I have never agreed on a blanket. The blankets I buy for us are usually too warm for him if they're warm enough for me. This is the first blanket that both of us agree on. It is lightweight, but warm. He hasn't complained once! And, as other reviewers have said, it is long enough on both sides to cover the bottom and give us both some "grab" room, and that means that we both have plenty of blanket to grab onto and move around with at night. I am thinking about getting a second and salting it away so that I don't live with the regret of having to part with it one day.
I bought this blanket based on the great reviews and am very glad I did. I don't like a lot of puffy foo-foo on the bed and wanted a blanket that would also serve as a coverlet. The queen size Prima Loft covers both sides and the foot of my queen-sized bed very well. It's lightweight but cozy and warm, and has a crisp, clean and classy look. Despite the extra width and length, it doesn't drag or make me feel tangled or constricted when I move or turn over, which is a big plus.
I have moved away from colorful spreads and shams to favoring all white linens. This blanket is perfect-it's a comforter disguised as a bedspread. It's crisp, oversized, and adaptable to any decor...the warmth and comfort is an added bonus. I was very satisfied and overstocks delivery and customer service is beyond reproach.
Ordered this blanket about 3 weeks ago and I am in heaven! this blanket has a high quality look and feel and the size is generous. I have a queen bed and the blanket reaches the frame on both sides and at the foot of the bed. I keep my house at 65 degrees while sleeping and this blanket keeps me warm but is not the type that makes you sweat.
I am very pleased with this blanket. I had a wonderful Eddie Bauer down alternative blanket that I got at Costco several years ago, and it needed to be replaced. While this cost about 3 times more -- it is generously sized, and the fabric seems to be of a very high quality. It's been washed once-- before I put it on the bed, and I think it looks good. I am expecting it to be like the last one I had, lightweight but warm. I'm glad to have found this. Love the down alternative as it is not nearly as bulky as a comforter.
I am very happy with this blanket. It fits our extra thick mattress perfectly and saved me a lot of money. This was the only place I could find on-line an oversized blanket in prima loft. It washes nicely and has the warmth without the weight that we were looking for.
Why do most manufacturers produce undersized bedding? I want my blankets and especially comforters to hang below the sheets so I don't have to tuck them. Bedding has not adjusted much to the thicker mattresses of today, and it's very difficult to find a top layer that is properly sized. I am using this blanket to transition seasons when the down comforter becomes too warm. Don't expect the warmth of down because it's not the same, which is good. I am using it as a top layer comforter this spring and will take it off when the heat of summer sets in. It's bright white and seems to be made well, simple and clean looking. I pass on most blankets and comforters due to the meager dimensions. This one is the perfect size!
This blanket makes a simple resort like statement. It washes well and is soft. Best part for our us, is that the weight is comfortable for summer use. The only negative critique I can give it, is that I wish it was wider. Even though it is supposedly "oversized", the sides are short.
The best quality ever! I love the fact that the blanket is oversized so that it hangs over both sides of our king bed. I find that using two blankets works better for my husband that is a furnace (so he can take one off) while I keep two on me instead of the bulky down comforters. Love it and will buy more!!!
