I purchased this blanket to be part of my new bedroom ensemble and it works perfectly. The blanket is lightweight so it would not be good for winter unless you layer it with additional blankets. We will use it for spring and summer. My husband likes it because it doesn't weigh his feet down and cause cramps but we also bought a coverlet, which is light weight also. I love buying from Overstock and have yet to be disappointed with any purchase. Keep up the good work!!
I love this blanket! I've purchased many supposedly king size blankets in the last 20 years, and far too many of them just didn't fit. I'd have to turn them sideways to get enough blanket to tuck in the sides and then not have enough at the foot. The Nautica blanket is perfect. It comes down just enough the bottom of the top mattress on the sides to tuck in and has a good amount of length so it can be tucked well in at the foot of the bed and thus stay neat. It also has a lovely "hand" -- very smooth and flat, nicely woven. It definitely says quality in my book and the price is so reasonable. I've already ordered a second one in a different color.
The positive first - I really like the color I chose - the beige. It looks really nice layered with my pale blue sheets and white quilt, and with the dark brown curtains. Also, it's very inexpensive for cotton. The negative - It came to me pilled up like it was used for years. The lint it leaves in the washer and dryer is astounding. It must be washed and dried by itself and you have to clean out the washer and dryer and you have to stop mid-drying to clear out the lint. Also, it's not very soft. I would keep looking for a better, more expensive one, but it's hard to find that great beige.
I almost didn't purchase this blanket due to other reviewers labeling it as "thin or light". It is a solid weave cotton blanket that you can not see through. It is heavy for this type of blanket but not compared to a velour or polartec type blanket. Perfect additional blanket. Not excellent quality as after one washing it was not as smooth any longer. The Seafoam color is really more of a light green, but I washed it with Woolite for Dark clothes and achieved the right look.
I was so surprised when i took it out of the package because it looked used and very rough! I thought that once it was washed it would soften up but that NEVER happened, instead I had lint everywhere and little pulls in it all over:( I thought that for a Nautica blanket the quality would be good...I guess I got what I paid for:(
What a soft and pretty blanket, I purchased the green, it's a soft sea-green color, 100% cotton, and washed up very nicely. The blanket is thinner, which concerned me at first. But it's plenty warm with the second cotton blanket I have on the bed, along with my Prairie patchwork bedspread (also from Overstock.com!). By the way, this soft green color blends very nicely with the colors of the bedspread. Good choice for me, glad I made the purchase.
I was looking for a blanket to fit inside a duvet cover for a light weight summer covering. The blanket is perfect for that purpose. It is very lightweight and a pretty soft green color. It is nice enough to use without the duvet. The size is an accurate King and fits perfectly both in the duvet cover and on the bed without the cover.. A good buy at a reasonable price
