Purchased a King size but the actual measurements were 78" X 108" not 90" X 108" as it was listed.Had a very strange bad odor and a blood like already clean stain on the silk edge.Had to return it immediately - just couldn't keep it in the house longer than 15min.

Thank you for writing this review on the Himalaya Trading Co. luxury pure cashmere blanket. We have done a complete quality check on all remaining inventory for this item. Sizing and stain issues have been resolved.
I would rather recommend the cashmere from the countries which actually make them well and guaranteed, countries like Mongolia maybe China because in those countries the weather gets up to -50 during winter times and goats produce the best cashmere wool in the world. So I recommend cashmere from those places because even many cashmere garment producers buy the yarn from these countries.
Purchased this to copy a bed look in a high end decorating book. I was concerned with some of the reviews - mostly because I didn't want it to look like a pashmina. This will satisfy the look I am going for. The cashmere does have a luxury look and feel and the satin binding prevents it from looking like a pashmina. It is also thicker than what a pashmina should really look like. As far as warmth - if this is what you are trying to satisfy - buy wool.
I have never felt cashmere that was this coarse. I can't believe it's cashmere...feels more like horsehair....the fabic is very poor quality...the blanket is very light weight...probably 2 ply....ivory color was more yellowish...no wonder it was so cheap!! I am so disappointed. Maybe my dog would like it.
Blanket is very thin, but we use it between the top sheet and a coverlet so there is no skin contact, but does add another layer of warmth, probably a bit pricey for what you get, but we had trouble finding a thin wool (not cotton or synthetic) that provided warmth without a lot of bulk, satisfied with purchase overall
We are very pleased with this cashmere blanket. It's soft and light but nice and warm. The jade color is darker than I expected but still very pretty. Our weather is unusually cold right now but this blanket is doing the job, keeping us warm.
