I love my new King sized blanket! This blanket is huge! In fact, I need to tuck it in on the sides so that it doesn't peak out from under my comforter. We never have to fight for more blanket during the night. I ordered the blue color. It is a beautiful ocean blue. I have washed this twice. I have seen no pilling and it is as soft as a babies blanket!! My cat have not snagged the blanket with their claws. This is a beautiful, light weight blanket, and an excellent value!
I purchased the king size blanket for use as a queen bed sheet, during the cold winter. When I tuck the four corners under the twelve-inch mattress, the blanket forms a fitted sheet, and does not shift or wrinkle from wear and tear. I am very happy with the quality; it is lightweight, warm and soft, and washed well. It also looks attractive as a bedspread, with the four corners hanging over the side of the queen bed. This was the best investment for the winter.
I didn't take this out of the package as the color was wrong. The "blue" is not a true light blue. It had a fair amount of green in it. I would describe it as more of a pale teal, sea foam or blue-green color. I need a true blue color to match my rug and pillows so have to return this. It did seem very soft as described by other reviewers. It's a shame the color didn't work. It seemed like a nice blanket and good quality for the price.
This has to be the softest blanket in the world! When I received it, I threw it in the washer and then the drier along with a fabric softner sheet. It came out beautiful...fluffy and soft. I put it on my son's bed as a surprise for him. When he got up the next morning and came in for breakfast, he said, "Mom, thanks for the new blanket. It has to be one of the most soft and comfortable blankets I've ever had!" This came from a young man that I never thought would even notice he had a new blanket on his bed! So, I believe that is the best testimony I can give about this blanket. It is great!
I live in the south and, because its hot, don't sleep with a comforter. I just use a blanket and a fitted sheet. I really like this blanket it is very soft and not too heavy. I think you would need something a little thicker if you were living in an area that snows all the time but for me this blanket was perfect. I have already washed it a couple of times and it is still in good shape. I think this will last several years.
As another reviewer mentioned, this blanket is a sea foam green rather than blue. This was exactly the color I wanted as it matches my rugs almost perfectly. It is so soft and light. I haven't washed it yet and hope it will not pile like a burgundy one I bought at a warehouse store did.
My husband and I are seniors and each face some health issues in our legs. Consequently a heavy blanket just isn't comfortable for either of us. This micro-light blanket works well for us both. It is not only soft and light weight but keeps us both very comfortable all night long.
I've used this blanket about 2 weeks. First thing I did was throw it in the dryer to eliminate the "new" smell and any excess lint. There was little lint in the filter. The blanket is ample in size for our king sized bed. I wanted a lightweight blanket for summer use and it's just enough for the nighttime chill. I ordered gray and the color is just as pictured.
