I rarely write reviews, but I have spent lots of time looking for a nice down blanket and am so pleased that I found it. Not a down comforter, but a blanket. Not so easy to find--unless you want to spend hundreds of dollars. I found the perfect blanket--the color is nice. I am into grays now, so it matches just as I'd hoped. Also, even though not mentioned, it really is reversible--one side has small flowers and the other side is plain. Best of all, it's toasty warm and oh so light. That's the best part--doesn't feel nearly as heavy as a down comforter. So, as you can tell, I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase!
I've always gotten my bedding from overstock.com since I'm always happy with my purchases and haven't found bedding as nice anywhere else. For the first time I ordered a blanket from them a few weeks ago that I didn't like. I saw this blanket and decided to try this one out and return the previous one. This one is much better, it's exactly what I had wanted. It's nice and soft and comfortable. More importantly it's not too hot in the Florida summer. It's lightweight and lets your skin breath, but it's also nice and comfortable and keeps you warm. The cute design is an added bonus. We got a king size for our queen size bed and it works perfectly (it's pretty big on our queen size bed, but that way me, my husband, and our Golden Retriever don't have to fight over the blanket!)
I bought this same down blanket (Northern Nights) for a queen bed, in a different color, from another site at twice the price. I am super pleased. This blanket is the only covering I need at night, winter or summer. It is just right with the air conditioning on, never too hot. It is not as noisy to sleep under as another down blanket I bought several years ago. Exactly what I was looking for to put on the king bed I have now.
Use this on my bed at the lake in Maine. It keeps us warm when it's chilly and is just right for late summer nights. Smells of wonderful down. Crinkly at first but softens. I bought the plum colored blanket. Its pretty without a comforter.
The simple print works beautifully with our pewter upholstered headboard. The quality is excellent and it has kept us toasty WARM. When I received it I opened it and shook it out and in a couple of days it fluffed up. It's serving double duty as a quilt and blanket and it has held up well even with my 3 BIG dogs jumping on it and by the way, they love it as well.
Love this blanket! I bought the ivory one, and it matches perfectly with my Bowery walnut bed! It is purely down fill, so no worries about feathers coming out. The weight is just right for the Houston weather (a down/feather comfort would be too heavy).
I thought I was ordering King Size a Full Size blanket arrived. Maybe it was my error, I sent it back for credit but at this time there are NO king size blankets of this type available. I have bought this blanket previously and loved it. This experience was not as good. Watch your sizes when you order.
