The green color, texture and weight of this blanket are great but it does have a smell that remains after washing twice. The smell is a bit like gasoline seems to be getting better so I will keep it. I hope that warm weather and airing it outside will work...but I could not sleep with it on my bed as it is. If you are sensitive to smell, you should pass on it.
I received the blanket yesterday. I first washed it and it washed beautifully. Little shedding and no shrinkage. The size fit my kingsize bed, which has been an issue for other blankets in the past. It had just the right amount of coverage. Also, I wasn't sure it would be warm enough since it is not as thick as my last blanket. I was pleasantly surprised. The ribbing helped to keep just the right tempurature. Not too hot, not too cold. It's a soft blanket with ribbing. I wasn't sure if I would like the ribbing, but it real;ly is a feature, not an issue. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase.
The weight of this blanket is perfect for a light summer-time cover, but the sides don't quite make it to the bottom of our thick mattress so it feels a bit skimpy. Initially the blanket had a "petroleum" smell that laundering did not remove, but now that we've had the blanket for a month, the smell has dissipated. My husband says this is the perfect blanket.
Needed a new blanket and was used to a "thermal" type of blanket,light and airy,warm enough,but also cool enough,so took a chance on this one. I've had it a couple of months now. It's very light,and seems almost too light at first,but it does keep me warm without all the weight,and is light enough to keep me cool enough if needed. It's plenty big enough,I ordered a king size and it drapes enough over the sides of the mattress to touch the box spring,and from head of the bed to the foot,there is also enough blanket with plenty to tuck in at the foot of the bed and turn a good sized "cuff" at the head of the bed. I ordered mine in the sage color, a very nice soft shade.It's very thin,so it feels kind of cheap,but it definitely does its job well,so I won't call it a cheap blanket,you just have to get used to it. It also has a small ribbing effect on one side,and is flat on the back side,I'd say there is a definite right side and wrong side to it,but that's not really important to the function.So far I've had no trouble laundering it, and it dries up nice. I'm very satisfied with this blanket.
Others reviewed it as lightweight. I couldn't agree more. It's VERY thin and light. Thinner and lighter than I anticipated, hence the average rating. Useful only in the summer months. While it's reasonably plush, it does not have that 'snuggly' feel one tends to associate with micro fleece. Originally purchased to use in the master bedroom, it was downgraded to the guest room where it's fine. Would recommend for occasional use: guest bedroom, extra blanket in the closet for sofa-bed overnight guest kind of thing. The friendly price got my rating up from 2 stars to 3.
I was looking for an everyday blanket for the bed. I wanted something that had some weight to it, was soft, and looked nice as well. The quality of this blanket is outstanding, far beyond what I would expect at this price point. It is very soft and has the look of a far more expensive fabric. I will be purchasing more of these because once you find your favorite blanket, there's no turning back.
