I purchased this blanket during a lightening deal. I ordered the grey in king, the picture is deceiving. It's actually a dark grey instead of a light one like the picture portrays and what I was expecting. I decided to keep it anyway. I washed it in cold water and used gentle detergent. When I pulled it out of the wash there were small pieces of stuffing scattered throughout the blanket. I'm not hopeful on the future of this blanket if this happens after 1 wash. Glad I didn't pay full price but still disappointed.
I am thrilled with this beautiful beach themed throw. It did have a special fabric smell common to some new fabrics so I washed it in cold water on delicate and tumbled it dry on low according to the instructions & it turned out perfect with a fresh smell.
These blankets are pretty, soft, and plush, but not even softener in the rinse water stops the static electricity of synthetic fabric. Next time, I will buy 100% cotton blankets.
I bought the grey blanket. Seems very nice so far. Nothing fancy. Haven't noticed any shedding, which was my main concern. So many "fuzzy" blankets shed terribly. I took a star off because the blanket arrived VERY wet inside of a completely dry box (and outer plastic packaging). How does that even happen?! All I can say is, I hope that was just water. Kinda bizarre and gross. I washed it twice to be safe. I also reached out to Overstock and they didn't do anything. Very disappointing.
