I needed a large (extra wide) light weight quilt for my King sized bed that has a 4" matteress pad on it. I was beginning to think I had to remove the mattress pad and then I thought about a blanket. I recalled using a down alternative blanket as my spread one time and it fit nicely. It was such a blessing to find a printed down blanket - it truly looks like a comforter. Especially nice with the satin shams I also found on Overstock that coordinated nicely with this blanket (sold separately).
I was looking for a lightweight down comforter and this "blanket" did the trick. We found other down comforters too warm, especially when you add the required duvet cover. The down blanket has a nice print and doesn't require a cover. It has that lightweight down feeling and provides the right amount of warmth.
Simply put, this is the nicest comforter I have ever owned. The light weight is perfect for all climates & seasons. The quality is terrific. The design is gorgeous and very elegant looking. It is difficult to find printed down comforters! I was so happy with mine that I bought another one for my daughter.
We live in Florida and I had tried a down comforter - the lightest one I could find - but it was still too warm - unless we were having one of our extra cold but infrequent nights. I decided to try a down blanket, having heard this was lighter yet. I was surprised at how pretty the cover is. It could be used as a bedspread. We use it as the only blanket over the top sheet and it is working out very well. I do set the thermostat to 70 A/C on mild nights or we might be kicking it off. We've had it since the fall and are very pleased with how light weight it is and it gives us just the right amount of warmth for Florida winter's cool nights. We haven't washed it yet, but we own down vests and I expect the down blanket to launder as well as the vests.
This is a high-quality product. The amount of down is just right to keep you warm but not too warm. Since it's oversized, it drapes nicely over the edges of the bed. And it's rare to find a down blanket with such a pretty design and a satin border. Great value for the money!
I love down blankets because comforters are just too hot. This is perfect for me. Also, nice tight-weave fabric and pleasing print (I got ivory and it has gray and goldish print on one side). This blanket is also generous in size and works as a coverlet as well as blanket. This is a good buy.
ordered full for my queen bed to use as a blanket and it does not hang down below my quilt; love the pattern look of the floral vine and beige background..finished off like a blanket..very attractive; not too heavy so gives us added warmth but not heavy ...
I really love the blanket. It is just right for winter layeyed with a very light blanket. We live in chilly Idaho and keep our bedroom temp. fairly cool. It is cozy and does the job nicely. I imagine it will work in summer too w/ out the light blanket on top. I really like the design as well. I ordered the grey color and love it. I would definitely order again, but the quality seems like that will be awhile.
We had a down blanket by the same company for many years and it was time to replace it. This blanket turned out to be the same high quality brand and is pretty with a pattern instead of just the solid color that we had previously. It is the perfect weight and nice and warm without over heating.
This blanket is wonderful. Exactly as described. The color, fabric and weight are perfect. Just leaking little bit of feather, but not a lot. This blanket is so worm you can use it even at the coldest time of the year. Very quick shipment. Will definitely recommend this to my friends..
I have always loved using down blankets because they are perfect for most temperature conditions. I purchased this to give as a wedding gift (and it is gorgeous.) It has a 3" satin binding all the way around and is reversible from print to solid and it is machine washable too. FIVE*****(very enthusiastic)*****STARS!
