I bought two of these blankets and I really like them. They are just right for summer. I have a queen bed and I bought a king, I should have gotten a queen cause they hang down on the sides but it's ok. the colors are nice. I haven't washed them yet, but I think they should wash fine.
I received the blanket yesterday (I ordered the blanket in Ivory). It's a really soft, nice looking blanket, but it smelled like turpentine. I washed it in Tide with Downy Fabric Softener. When I took it out of the dryer it stilled had a strong order. I then washed it with Gain (which I use for my husband's work clothes) and it still has an odor. I guess I'll use it in my guest bedroom and hope that the odor dissipates before anyone uses it!
We needed a warm blanket that would fit our King bed and this one did the job perfectly. It is warm and the micorfleece makes it lightweight. I have ordered many sheets for our bed from you and have never been disapointed.The prices are very good and not overly expensive.I will order again from Overstock.com
The blanket arrived fast and as I said above it was soft and the green color is pretty. It also has satin binding around all four sides. However, the odor from it was over-whelming. I had to wash it three times and it still smelled!!! It smelled like asphalt??? Even hung it outdoors on a breezy, sunny day thinking it would help. The smell is still there, but barely noticeable now.
While it depends on what we're each looking for, this blanket suited my needs exactly. I wanted a blanket suitable for a warmer climate that also felt light-weight on the body. Also, I have a queen size bed and sometimes things sized "double/queen" are skimpy on a queen bed and make it difficult to share the cover. This blanket gives warmth, but is very light-weight on the body, and the size is plenty generous of a queen size bed. Also, I washed it before using it and it came out just fine. I bought this blanket because my daughter and her husband have been using one over a year and lthey like theirs too.
