beautiful and light-weight and quite warm for tucson winter nights! very good quality--one of my better guesses--a great buy. i haven't had to clean it yet and, unfortunately, will have to have it dry cleaned. but do expect it to weather washings well over time, unlike many more fluffy filled blankies.
This is the perfect cover for those hot summer nights when a blanket is too much but a sheet is too little. The best part is that I put the blanket in the washer and hung it dry and it's fine. It's a great plus that I don't need to dry clean.
I have silk duvets that I purchased from another retailer and am very happy with it. I purchased the blanket to use in lighter weather but even after a year and many washings, it still has a noticeable raw silk odor. Generally, I like the scent fo raw silk but curling up with it at night is not optimal. If you can live with the smell, it's a great blanket and it does wash well and fits nicely in a duvet cover for a warm weather alternative to a heavier duvet or comforter.
Since this is my first silk-filled, I cannot compare the quality of the fills but given this is a blanket, it is fine. There are very thin layer of filling inside. It feels more like a luxurious thick layered cotton sheets. Pro: Light weight, no smell, good quality cotton. Con:... you'll need comforter over this if not in a hot summer night.
This cotton blanket feels wonderful on the skin as a summer night cover without additional sheets. It's perfect for what I was looking for - not a cotton which is cool but not soft enough, nor a cotton sheet, which is soft but it lack the weight and texture of a cover. It's good quality, shiny white and nicely bordered. I'm even considering buying and additional one.
Great for a person that needs just a little coverage. Not warm enough for me but I need hot weather. Hogh 80's and 90's with humidity I feel g=reat. This is due to having Lupus and other medical issues due to the Lupus. So is great for my husband.
Great blanket if you don't want a bulky comforter in your bed. It is warm and comfortable. It has a nice silky feel and a great look. Smells like silk, so I had it outside to air out. I used a duvet cover on it so I can keep it clean. Perfect for not so cold winter bedding and for summer, too. Good price.
I was very pleased with this. I brought it for our guest bed. Our guest remarked on how nice and warm it is, the room at the back of the house is rather cold this time of year. It also looks great with the gray and white decor of the room. Pleased!
We had been looking for a lightweight natural fiber blanket or quilt that was attractive and reasonably priced. It turns out that this combination is not so easy to find. We live in LA so it's not terribly cold but the nights in winter get down into the forties and we wanted something warm. This blanket is like magic, warm on the cool nights and not oppresive on the warm ones. Plus it just looks incredibly well made and designed. I want to buy one of these for each of my friends. It feels like a much more expensive blanket than it is.
I have had the super expensive Silk comforters and while they are lovely, they don't hold up to everyday wear and tear the way these blankets do. This is my second silk blanket from Overstock (sadly the first was destroyed by a pet. This one seems of better quality than the last one I purchased which has been a number of years ago. The weight is ideal for the climate here in the South and if you are like me and need something over you when you sleep, even when it's warm, this blanket offers the perfect weight. The cover fabric is sturdy and attactive enough not to cover but with pets, that's not an option at our house. The king sized blanket fits perfectly in a King Duvet cover!
I am very happy with the purchase of this comforter/blanket. I have recently just returned from visiting China, and visited a silk bedding company. Although over there, you have many choices in terms of sheet colors and patterns, but the price and quality at Overstock is actually pretty competitive.
