The blanket is well constructed and warm but the fabric crinkles like you are sleetping under a candy wrapper. Tried washing it to see if that would take away the crinkle. It did not. Should have just returned it and not washed it. I would not recommend this blanket.
Very poor material. It bearded so badly that after a few days my red sheets were completely covered in white fibers. I do have to say it is warm. I might use it like a sleeping bag on camping trips as that is what the material feels like. It will not be going back on the bed.
Immediately upon unboxing this blanket, more than several feathers were present. I put it on my black sheets and the next day little white, fluffy feathers were all over my sheets and floating around my bedroom. This blanket is like sleeping with a cellophane wrapper, in other words, ITS LOUD!!! If I had a dog, I wouldn't let it sleep on this blanket. Overstock couldn't have made it easier to return for a refund, but beware that they charge a restocking fee. DO NOT BUY THIS SUBSTANDARD PRODUCT!
The product arrived within a reasonable amout of time, but when it arrived it was not the same color advertised in listing. I ordered the red, although the color name was something else. When it arrived it was more of a purple-ish color, and I quickly found that the feathers do not stay in the blanket. The next day there were feathers all over my bed and bedroom. I was very disappointed. I do have to say I have ordered many things through overstock and have been very happy with my purchases. I just won't be ordering any more Joseph Abboud down blankets!!!
I thought this blanket was well worth the money. It feels luxurious, the color was true to web, and is well sown. The only negative thing is that some of the square pockets weren't filled with as much down as others and a few seemed to have very little if any at all.
I've gone the route of the down comforter with duvet cover. Never again! THIS blanket is FABULOUS!!!! Lightweight, warm, made in The USA, terrific quality, and it also serves as my bedspread. Finally, I'm found exactly what I'd hoped for. I'm ordering a second one right now.
I ordered the Cordovan which online is the main picture and is actually a red/scarlet color, what was shipped to me was a mulberry color, more resembling the Regal image. HUGE disappointment. It is not the wrong color the shipping slip has the UPC with the color listed and matches the tag on the blanket. Since the item is so bulky, looks like it is cheaper for me to just keep than to pay shipping to send back. Second disappointment after getting over the horrible color, is the fabric has a slight sheen to it, which to me makes it look cheap. The blanket does make rustling sounds as other reviews have mentioned - it is a little noisy. There were loose feathers when I unpacked the item, as others had mentioned and I expect it will get worse. Overall, I am really disappointed with the product. The color was not depicted accurately and it just was not the same as the others I had purchased in the past. I would not recommend this product.
I'm very happy with this blanket. It is cozy warm and light weight. I wish it came in other colors. It is so crinkly when we move in bed that it actually woke my baby (who co-sleeps with us in the mornings) the first few night. You get used to it like any other noise, but they surely could have made a quieter blanket!?
I should have known better....a J Abboud linen for such a great price. If you are planning on giving this as a gift - don't bother. No tags to verify its brand and no packaging. Came stuffed in a clear plastic bag. I should have returned it immediately, but was desperate for a burgundy blanket. The blanket did look lovely on the bed. However, once we started to use it, we began to see its real worth. It is horribly "crinkly." In fact it is downright noisy. And, to make matters worse, it releases feathers like there's no tomorrow. My guest room was covered in feathers after only a couple of night's use. Frankly, it sheds so much that I am afraid to wash it. Bottom line, my cats love their new J Abboud blanket. Based on its performance, I could not expect humans to continue using it.
I have used the blanket for over two months and even purchased three more for gifts. Nice feel, light weight but warm enough for this years very cold Northeast winter. There are a few feathers poking out occasionally and I have not had to wash it yet - which will be the real test of the quality.
