it was more of a heavy tapestry thing; the design was bigger than the one pictured. Again another item made in India that when I opened the box a strong odor came from the blanket; enough to make me throw up. Am fed up with the poor quality of merchandise I have been receiving from Overstock. A waste of money.
I bought one of these in twin size to use as a throw blanket several years ago. Now I need a new blanket for my queen sized bed and I'm ordering another in the larger size and a different color. The blanket is durable and thick, cozy, and you can't beat real cotton at such an affordable price. It's held up through many washes. Only con is some pilling after washing. Clearly not bad enough to stop me from purchasing blanket number two :)
I have a light thermal blanket that was great for those warm summer nights. I needed something just a little bit warmer for those nights that were a little cooler. This blanket is great for that. It is a bit heavier (weight wise) than I would like, but a good blanket for those not so warm summer nights.
The picture and discription of the blanket does not indicate the design is printed on like a screen print. It appeared to be part of the weave of the fabric. Laundered it once and didn't wash well. Do not recommend purchasing this blanket.
I haven't tried washing this yet(and it doesn't show dirt readily so that may be awhile) but first impressions are this is a steal at the price: plenty big, a substantial two layers of woven cotton, attractive (I have the teal) and practical. I may order more.
Put this in the washer then dryer and it looked like a 10 year old blanket. Took me four hours with a sweater shaver to make it look decent again. The blanket is a bit like a burlap bag. Nope, wouldnt order it again. Afraid to let any of my friends sleep under it.
In the words of my husband: "I can't say enough good stuff about this blanket!" We got chocolate and teal, the colors and pattern are gorgeous and modern, and the weight and material of the blanket are perfect for spring and summer. Looks and feels amazing
Upon recieving this blanket, I threw it into the wash so that I could start using it right away. After it was done being washed it pilled a little, but it is to be expected with this kind of weave. It looks amazing on my bed, feels nice and heavy but doesn't get too hot - which I love! Paired with 100% cotton sheets and comforter it makes for a really comfortable nights sleep. Definitely a good buy, thinking of buying another.
Very funky, LA surfer style light summer cotton blanket. Looks better in person than on the website. Good price, good quality.
