Perfect blanket for hot weather and for those who don't like heavy covers. Add the satin binding on all sides and this blanket is perfect for South Florida weather all year round - never too warm, keeps the warmth in when you need it, and is incredibly light weight. It washes good, dries quickly, and has held up well through many washings. I'm always skeptical about buying when I haven't actually seen the product but in this case I was pleasantly surprised. I bought one last year and just again for a wedding shower gift. For the price it was perfect for what I was looking for.
I bought 4 of these blankets about 1 1/2 years ago. These are the best blankets I have ever owned! They're great in the summer, they're great in the winter. Very soft and comfortable and they wash great (believe me after 1 1/2 years they have seen quite a few washings). They still look like they did when I bought them. If you're thinking about buying them go ahead, you won't regret it. They're fantastic!
I purchased this very comfortable and good-looking down alternative blanket in king size and chose the rich chocolate brown color. It has a silky soft feeling and the hem is banded on all four sides. It looks and feels very luxurious, is very light-weight, so is a perfect blanket for warm summer nights. The down alternative material is held in place in squares stitched on both sides of the blanket. Best of all, it is machine washable and dryable.
We purchased the microfiber down alternative blanket for our daughter to take to UGA for her dorm room. What a delight when the blanket arrived promptly and was a such a beautiful, soft fabric that we could hardly believe the value! It is the perfect weight for our warm southern clilmate and has already proven to be snuggly, soft, and right at home in the dorm.
This is my second time purchasing this beautiful blanket. We have five in our home now. It has the perfect weight for any season, now that we've hit the frost season I've been pleasantly surprised that we've all slept in comfort. I know when winter hits I'll just have two of these gems on my bed. The texture of the blanket is a soothing sheer feeling on the skin, yet keeps you warm on cool nights. The best part is that the quality and appearance are quite striking. The sage color is gorgeous and the brown and khaki aren't far behind. I actually use it to make the beds and prefer the look over a rather expensive bed ensemble that I thought I loved. Don't hesitate to grab this up...before I do.
I ordered the pink king size blanket and was very pleasantly surprised. It is very nice looking and is the perfect weight for the summer months. I can also pull it up and use it to make the bed and it looks great!!! Don't hesitate to buy one.
This is the perfect blanket for Florida or any other southern state. I love the down alternative because you don't get little picky feathers sticking through as you do with down. This blanket is lightweight yet warm when it needs to be. The covering is so soft and comfortable and the binding is well sewn. I loved this so much I ordered a second one for my guest bedroom and donated my fleece blankets. You will not be disappointed if you buy this blanket.
I love this blanket so much! I bought one a while ago in the Sage color, and found myself fighting with my boyfriend over it... So I just bought another, in the light blue. They are the most comfortable and sunggily blankets I own, and they get even softer every time you wash ithem. The only complaint I have about this blanket is the fact that the colors described are WAY OFF... However, they are much prettier than what they look like online. The pastel colors are darker but still subtle. I plan on buying more of these for people as X-Mas presents!
I bought this for my daughter's bed for winter. It is lightweight yet keeps her warm. We are using this under her decorative bedspread so it's an added layer of warmth. It's not bulky like a down comfortor. I believe it was money well spent.
I bought this blanket because my husband sweats at night - even when it's 10 degrees out, so the expensive down comforter we bought got put on our guest bed. This is a great lightweight blanket, but it tends to fall off the bed throughout the night because it is on the slippery side. We bought the "sage", but it is more like a minty green. It washes really well, and we have used it for a few years now. Since I tend to be cold, I use an additional blanket on my side when it gets really cold out. Overall, a great blanket for someone who is allergic to down, and wants a nice alternative to a heavy down comforter.
We usually use a down alternative blanket as a comforter in the middle ot the summer. However, the fabric on this blanket is really cheap looking, so we are going to have to return it. I think it would be great for someone looking for a blanket to be used UNDER a bedspread.
I read reviews saying this blanket is good as a replacement for a down comforter, but not true! I live in San Diego, and it doesn' t get that cold here. We used a light down comforter for 10+ years, and thought this was a good alternative when it had to be replaced. But!! It definitely does not keep you as warm, it's very thin. Great color, easy to wash, and very soft. But, you'll need a second blanket/comforter in winter if you're used to Down...
