Nice, quality brand blanket. One would pay lots more for the brand elsewhere. The sage color is subtle and pairs nicely with the cream color on the other side. There was noticeable lint in the dryer trap so I will opt to line dry next time.
I've always liked these very soft and thick cotton blend blankets made in Germany by Ibena. They're quite durable. I like the velvety soft binding applied on all sides. I own several of these in king size. I use them all year-round. These blankets don't pill or shed, and they're easy to wash. I make sure to use lukewarm water with little detergent and tumble dry them at low heat using several softener sheets so they come out fluffy soft. I prefer to take the blanket out of the dryer while still a bit damp and finish drying by spreading it on the guest bed, lifting it and turning it occasionally until fully dry.
We have a thicker "winter" blanket - same kind of microplush - but in about one more month, it will be overkill, so I found this little gem. The slate grey matches the bedroom perfectly - and it's that perfect weight for sprint/fall - just a little more than a "regular" non-down blanket, but not so heavy you're going to sweat all night. It's a great buy - and also a very popular addition according to our dogs and cat.
I bought the grey/light gray version in queen. It arrived quickly. I like to wash items before use, so I washed this blanket. It made it even softer than before! It is a very good looking blanket that's a medium weight--not a summer blanket, but you might need two on a really cold night. I just love it! It is so well made and very practical, too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Colors in the picture were very accurate.
I love my new blanket. It has been perfect for our rare cold cold nights in Houston, but, not too hot that it ends up on the floor. The two-sided color combination is also a plus! I bought a king size for my queen size bed because our mattress is so thick, regular queen size blankets don't have any over-hang. If I needed a second one, I would get it. Enjoy!
I bought this blanket as an accent blanket - it didn't work for that. It's much thicker than that. Incredibly warm. I bought it because the camel color was what i was looking for and it was true to color shown. It was just to thick for the purpose i wanted it for. I wound up giving it to one of my daughters as she needed the thickness and warmth this blanket provides. She LOVES it.
Product looks great and feels great however in sheds handfuls of lint that stick to everything. I've tried using a lint roller, but then more appears. I've put it in the dryer on air fluff twice and the shedding continues. Save your money, it's a real mess.
