Re-decorating our bedroom and decided to finally get Good bed linens. I love this blanket. Queen bed and the blanket is more than roomy. Does not itch at all. The cream is a beautiful cream. The only thing is the packaging says Washable but it is dry clean only. Dont understand that but it does not really even matter since I LOVE this blanket so much. As usual Overstock was great to deal with.
This blanket will add a lot of warmth on cool nights and is of excellent quality which means that it will last for years and still look beautiful. It will actually be more beautiful with age.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I bought the grey blanket, it was a little lighter than I expected, but it was beautiful and actually matched with my spread better.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was excellent, soft, not scratchy, and very European.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was perfect.
I'd like to give myself credit for being wise enough to purchase this blanket within a week of losing power to Storm Alfred for nine days. While the timing was coincidental, the result was that this truly became a security blanket. As autumn temperatures in Connecticut made the power outage almost unbearable throughout most of the house, bed became a sanctuary and this blanket kept me warm all night long. It is soft, the color (beige) is a perfect fit in my "tamarind" room, and if I can't give myself credit, well, I'll gladly give the nod to Overstock.com for sending me a fantastic product when I needed it far more than I could have iimagined!
This is a great blanket. It's not too warm, and works well paired with a comforter. It's a little scratchy, but you don't really notice.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
after years of interrupted sleep due to being too cold, too hot, too cold, too hot i am thrilled to sleep peacefully with a wool blanket that maintains my body temperature. as a child, i remember sleeping with scratchy wool army blankets. this blanket is much softer although still need a sheet in-between yourself and the blanket.
Pros: Quite soft due to the acrylic component. I machine washed it per the tag instructions; there was a fair amount of "blanket" in the lint filter; this was dissapointing but I am told that this is normal for wool blankets. It washed well otherwise. No shrinkage. Cons: I was dissapointed that the blanket is somewhat on the thin side.
Recently bought this blanket in charcoal. The color was perfect; a nice rich charcoal with light gray fibers. It looks rich and fabulous but it does its job even better. Light weight but warm, warm, warm but not too warm. I have not had to throw off the covers once during the night after putting this blaket on my bed. Yummy comfort. I'm going to purchase another in the off white. The best blanket on the market for its price and functionality. A no-brainer.
To be fair, I can't help comparing wool blankets to the ones at my grandma's house: well-made, durable, substantial, 100% wool, and older than me. The Italian wool-blend blanket I ordered from overstock is a beautiful color (I ordered the pumpkin- looks just like the picture) and fairly soft. However-- that material seems flimsy compared to what I'm used to, and not the quality I'm looking for. I guess I'll have to pay more to get the "good stuff" (or help myself to grandma's closet...)
