i got the ocean color in twin size. just rigt for the price. the softness, color, weave/craftmanship was fine. i liked the self hemmed edges, too. this blanket kept me toasty warm, but you'll probobly want a heavier weight blanket for winter. i havn't washed or dried it yet, so can't say about laundering it. the blanket arrived 48 hours after i placed my order from overstock. way to go, overstock!

I bought these fo my grandsons to use during sleep-overs. They arrive on time and in excellent condition. I would recommend washing them before you use them the first time. There was a lot of fuzz in the dryer trap. They washed up beautifully and came out of the dryer soft and fluffy. I would recommend them to anyone who asked. Therey were a great buy.
I just needed to order a cheap blanket to throw on top of my bedspread because my dogs lays up there sometimes. But when I put it on my bed I could not believe it. It is too nice to use for that.It is one that you would see in a very nice hotel. It is so thick and so nice it is unreal. I will be ordering more of these for sure. I ordered the gold/yellow color and it is so pretty. I would highly recommend this blanket. I ordered a twin and it would for sure fit a queen bed. Very good size!
The blanket was priced high. Bought for child's bed. Does not keep her warm. Not very soft. It may be all cotton. But it's not warm enough and I don't live in a snowy climate. I'm in California Bay Area. So if your in colder climates I would not purchase this. Florida, Hawaii maybe..
Blanket continues to pill even after many washings. Yarn snags easily. Not attractive covered in fuzzies and snags. MUCH HEAVIER WEIGHT THAN I WAS EXPECTING! Living in Florida I was looking for something light weight to replace an old blanket I have been using. Not a good value for the cost. Color matched.
This arrived very quickly. I ordered a white one and it's very pretty. I washed it right away and as other reviewers said, there was an enormous amount of lint in the dryer but that's cotton. It looks pretty on the bed. It's lightweight -- good for a summer blanket for the kids. It's not really soft -- I would personally not use it without a top sheet between me and this blanket but the kids don't seem to mind. It's a good value for the money and would also make a good throw for a couch.
I read all the reviews on this before I bought it so I thought my biggest issue was going to be that the blanket had a lot of lint when I washed it. No. I bought two - the blush and the lilac, and they've both worn exactly the same way, which is to say that when they are washed, the thick cotton threads that make up the blanket all come out in random places and it looks totally tattered and messy. And yes, I did wash and dry them on the hand wash cycle on my machine. The blanket is thicker than I thought, so that was good, but it is not at all soft. I've been using them on my daughter's bed (which is what I bought them for) because I don't feel like I can give them away, and I'd be embarrassed to use them in a guest room. They look terrible. And now I'm finding out that it isn't only in the wash that they get so messed up. Even a fingernail or a toy with an edge will wind up pulling threads out of this blanket, so it just looks all messed up. Anyway, I just wound up getting a fleece blanket for XX.XX at XXXXXX that has been a ton cozier, thicker and better looking for her bed and we'll probably wind up repurposing these for the dog's bed.
I ordered 2 twin size blankets. They came pretty fast but from different places. When i opened 1st one it looks OK but had a lot of lint all over it. I decided to wash it and use it after. Second one had terrible smell, After washing they shrank probably quoter of size (there was huge amount of lint on the dryers filter) and I noticed that second one has different quality and slightly different color from the first one. I wish I sent it back right away. Don't buy this product!
This blanket is a great middle weight for my daughter who kicks the covers off at night. The purple color is pretty. They fit the bed. There are a few snags or loose ends in the knit of the blanket which is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars. It is perfect for our use.
