Wanted a very light weight blanket that we could use year round here in the Pacific Northwest and this is that blanket. It stays on our king bed all year and is easy to launder. Haven't had any pilling issues and it goes well with Overstock's 6 oz German flannel sheet sets.
Wow. This flannel blanket is amazing. Heavy weight, soft, nice and large. Adds amazing warmth, much more than flannel sheets do. I place it between the top sheet and one blanket in winter. After receiving this, I bought another for my guest bed, and one for my out-of-state daughter. Highly recommend!
We've been using this old fashioned "sheet blanket" (as my grandmother called them) for a couple years now. We wash it at the change of seasons, barring any accidental spills (we do have grandchildren who've cuddled up with us in bed for morning stories), and it's still a dense flannel with no wear spots. It's a little narrow, so we put it on the bed "sideways." Over all, we're planning on ordering more for our guest beds.
