I had been looking for a blanket in coral for a long time and then finally came upon this one on Overstock.com. I am so glad I ordered it. The color is perfect, it's a good size and it's so warm! Add to that the price, and this was definitely a score!
This blanket smelled as it came out of the package. I have purchased other blankets like this form other stores and have been very happy with the quality. I shopped Overstock for the convenience. If I had not needed to have a blanket I would have returned it but there was no time. The blanket feels flimsy and old. It looks faded right out of the package. If you want the look of vintage then this might be the blanket for you. Otherwise keep shopping.
I read the reviews about 50 of them. All the ones that said about the blanket having lint is true there is a lot of lint the first wash just keep cleaning it out once you get all the pint off this beautiful cotton blanket it's the best! My girlfriend loves it compared to the micro fiber ones chase they make her too hot. A must by for 30 bucks
First of all, I don't know what kind of warehouse this blanket came from, but the box & packaging STANK. I was extremely worried that the smell wouldn't wash out; luckily it did. So once I got the packaging out of the house and the blanket washed, all was well. This is a standard cotton blanket. It's lighter weight than I expected it to be, but since it's going on a bed under a down comforter, it doesn't really need to be super heavy weight. It serves its purpose, but it's nothing to write home about.
I ordered a king size blanket and what arrived was marked as such but would barely fit a full/double. It doesn't even cover the full top of the king size bed. Other than that, the quality is good and it is a surprisingly warm blanket, but impossible to make the bed with it, it just sits on top of the mattress and won't tuck in, makes it very hard to keep the bed neat.
Washed blanket for first time made a mess in washing machine !!! And even more of a mess in dryer!! I love purple but this blanket left its mark everywhere. I am so frustrated with this blanket. Wasted my time cleaning washing machine from all the shedding of blanket. The dryer was worse...the lint trap filled up fast ...due to the amount of shedding in washer I knew to watch it in dryer. I would NOT recommend this blanket and will probably donate this local clothes drive...I not happy with this product at all.
