I was really excited about this blanket, since we needed something medium-weight and soft for the master bedroom. Wool makes me itch, and cotton is too light -- so cashmere seemed like a great solution. Unfortunately, this blanket was not at all thick and was fairly scratchy. This was not the high-quality cashmere of my favorite sweaters or blankets, but seemed the cheap, low-end cashmere they use for discount sweaters -- hardly discernable from regular lambswool. For the price, I'd expect something far better, especially since this was only a blend. I returned it and will keep looking for the right blanket.
I have never bought cashmere before because of the price. I live in an area that doesn't get that cold even in the winter time. I washed the blanket right when it came and put it on the bed. It is not to heavy and just warm enough for my taste. The only downside is the fact that it had alot of lint when it came out of the dryer. The price is a little bit high for me but I love this blanket. The blue is a really nice shade and goes with me duvet cover. Hope to be using this for many years.
This is a bit expensive. It's a nice blanket and washes well, I just thinks it is not the best value. I like it and it's soft and warm. I have been uses it this winter and it's very very comfortable on the bed. If it was $** it would be s GREAT value.
Very disappointed in the quality. Purchased this for a present for my parents and was shocked with how cheap the quality was when it arrived. Not 100% cashmere and feels like something you would purchase at Walmart. Do not waste your money.
i expected an "Italian-made Washable Cashmere Blanket" would be 100% cashmere -- i was rushing with shopping that i didn't check on this and would not have bought it otherwise -- nice blanket but too expensive for what it turned out to be!
I ordered this as a Christmas present for my husband. He and I both love the softness and lightweight warmth this blanket provides. It is beautifully finished. I anticipate that it will launder well. The bonus was Overstock's service. Though I ordered standard delivery, it arrived in 2 days- just in time to put under the tree.
I love my Italian-made washable cashmere blanket. It is light weight but keeps us warm at night without having to use another blanket. I could not find washing instructions in the packaging or on the blanket so I washed it in cold water with Dreft, put it in the dryer on low and it came out beautifully.
