I bought this blanket because of previous reviews and product details. It said it was meant for a hotel chain so I figured it would be well made and durable. One review said it was labeled Dry Clean Only, but I decided to give it a shot. Long story short: Blanket arrives, says Dry Clean Only, contact Customer Service, they are awesome, box up blanket, go to manufacturer's website by chance, see the following "Product label does say 'dry clean' but they are machine washable," let's give it a shot, blanket comes out of box and into the washer (cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry low heat), comes out warm and fluffy. So, the blanket is indeed machine washable and machine dry-able. This blanket serves under a slightly heavier blanket for added warmth. I put it on the bed and my wife loved it right away. The blanket is indeed very light, warm, and soft. The blanket covers the bed well, and hangs over the sides to keep the warmth in. The blanket also appears well-made and the fill stays where it is supposed to after being washed due to sewn through construction. This blanket is an ideal extra layer for extra warmth without extra weight. Overstock customer service is excellent. Thanks Ricky
This blanket is indeed "silky touch" and actually resembles a comforter more than a blanket. I wasn't too sure how warm it would be since it was thin, but was pleasantly surprised as to how warm it kept me during the night. It only came in white, but that was fine for me. I highly recommend this blanket.
