I bought this blanket in smoke a few months ago and I love it. NOTE PET OWNERS--This blanket CAN snag; it happened to me-a small one-and but I was able to fix it.. It is tightly woven and a nice change to the "basket weave" type blankets. It has a nice hem on all four sides of the blanket, so there's no hunting for the top side. There IS a texture difference from one side to the other, but after a few washes in hot water and fabric softener, I did not find it scratchy as some other reviewers noted. I am very happy with my purchase. I gave 4 stars for the snagging--that's all. It's worth every penny!
I have been searching for months to find the perfect blanket for my new comforter set, and I finally found it! I was so thrilled to find this product, even more thrilled when it arrived. The look & feel was more than imagined and pictured. Most of the reviews I read were accurate, however, when I washed my product in the machine (as indtructed), the blanket faded some and the soft, supple feel is gone... This is not due to my inability to wash. Anyone who knows me will tell you when it comes to washing clothes & the maintenance of my fabrics - I am the best! This was something that apparently, could not be avoided. The only thing that keeps me from rating this product as Excellent is this fact, the look & feel is deminished...

We were looking for a light blanket for our summer sleeping, and this filled the bill and then some. It has a luxurious feel to it. we have a queen bed, but ordered a king instead of the full/queen. We avoid blanket hogging this way. We may just use it all year round, with a heavier quilt on top during winter months.
The material is tightly woven just as I advertised but the edges are finished poorly, no facing, just folded and hemmed. I needed a king, but the blanket arrived with seamed pieces on either side that appeared it was designed for a queen with just pieces added. Those seams separated in places on the 3rd day of making the bed ... will it probably keep me warm this winter - the answer is yes ... will I throw it out at first opportunity - the answer is also YES! ... nice material, poor construction ...
I was very pleased with this blanket. I was looking for something light for summer and this fit the bill. I have a king size bed and this fit perfectly. Most times, you get things for the bed and they only have a few inches go over the side. This blanket goes well over so my husband and I don't have to fight over it! I have to admit, though. I didn't wash it. Some other reviews said it lost its softness after washing and I didn't want to lose that. Very please with this product - and Overstock. You guys rock!

This blanket has luminous color, a very soft touch, tight weave, and great finish on the edges. I found the blanket for which I was searching .... mid/light weight, durable, and machine washable. The platinum color was true to the picture and would complement any room with nickel or pewter, shiny or antique finishes.
I immediately noticed pulls on the blanket material and they continue to grow. A very poor quality product from India. Not at all worth the money. Very dissatisfied.

This blanket was so gorgeous when I got it that I ordered another for guest room- then I washed it.After washing it loses gorgeous sheen & is just another cotton blanket.I don't know what 'zero-twist' means.Anyway it is very comfy but the little decorative pattern can pull easily.Not much lint.Overall I'd keep looking...you can probably find something a little nicer for the $$.
Launders beautifully. It did shrink some but we expected that. Bought a king size so there would be some overhand on a queen-size bed. Very light weight but just right for the hot, humid climate we live in (Texas coast). We liked the first one so much we ordered two more for the other bedrooms.
Received yesterday. Wahed and dried. No pilling and lint. It is great for summer and winter. We love this blanket. Will buy again

For the price, I'm happy with the quality of this blanket. My husband sleeps hot and I don't, so I wanted a breathable cotton blanket that was warm but not too heavy, and this has worked out for both of us. I use this and a sheet in the winter in a room that probably doesn't go below 60F at night, and I'm comfortable. I bought this because our previous blanket shed lint like a cat, and after one wash and a month's use I haven't seen any lint from this. Seems like it will last for awhile. One side is softer than the other, but even with sensitive skin, the rougher side isn't scratchy or irritating to me.
I absolutely love this blanket. It has excellent workmanship. It is perfect for a lightweight summer blanket. I can sleep with the ac a few degrees higher since my heavy blanket makes it too warm. The blanket is over-sized and perfect for a couple so you don't have to pull it off your partner. The feel is soft to the touch and the design is similar to much more expensive blankets.
This blanket is ideal for summer months and has ample weight for winter without the 'bulk'. First time washing generated quite a bit of lint; but, it didn't shrink or lose its shape. First time I bought this was a gift; this one was for personal use: love it - love it - love it ! A little pricey; but, you get what you pay for~
This blanket came in just a few days- it is much nicer than I expected. The construction of this blanket is very tightly woven and has a beautiful design in it. The fabrication is very soft and washed up beautifully- even softer after washing. I don't believe this blanket will every "pill" or look old due to the high quality cotton that was used in the construction. Not sure of the definition of "feather touch mercerized zero twist" but it must mean VERY LUXURIOUS HIGH QUALITY! The blanket is like a lightweight coverlet instead of a blanket. It would work well as a stand alone summerweight bed covering or layered in with our down comforter for the winter time. Another "O" perfect purchase!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. higher than expected
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? exactly as shown but the descrition Mercerized Zero Twist needs to be explained
I love this blanket. it's the perfect weight for summer. I like to be covered and this does the job without being heavy, no urge to kick it off during the night. After reading the other reviews, I ordered the king for my queen bed. Good advice.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? color perfeclty matched the description
- How is the quality of the product? excellent
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? the product was described very accurately
The color was exactly what the photo showed so matched perfectly. I wanted to use it as a bedspread, as another reviewer had suggested, since it would be so easy to wash. Have 3 dogs that sleep with me frequently and the comforter I had required going to a commercial laundry. This blanket was beautiful and very soft when it arrived. But when washed before going onto the bed, it was already starting to pill. Three weeks later it has pilled more and has a "haze" where the cotton looks like a cottonball that has been slowly pulled apart. I'm looking for a more durable replacement already. That being said, if I had used it as a blanket with a comforter or a bedspread over it, it might have lasted longer. The website and the fast delivery were excellent and I will use Overstock again.
Described as F/Q but marked Queen and had small hole; also described as lightweight blanket but was more like a heavy coverlet. I contacted Overstock Customer Support by phone & my return request was handled efficiently and courteously. My credit card account was reimbursed promptly upon their receipt of the return.
