When preparing Mom's 'apartment' at the Memory Care residence, we had to find every piece of furniture, bedding, etc. she would need. Purchasing this Vellux blanket was truly the only item I did not hesitate over. I've had Vellux blankets as well as other fleece/microplush coverings over the years. All the original Vellux blankets have been fabulous! They wash well, never fade and are always a 'go to' choice. Vellux blankets are soft, cool for those who overheat and warm when another blanket is on top. Mom is always cold and this beautiful blanket keeps her nice and toasty with a comforter over it. The only caution is to NEVER use bleach with Vellux blankets.
It is hard to find Twin XL blankets but this one is a great purchase. The weave is lovely but not too open so as to easily pick which often happens with cotton blankets. It washes up beautifully and is a great light weight blanket. I would not hesitate to purchase this blanket in other sizes and colors!
I was looking for yarn dyed tight cotton weaved blanket. This blanket looked like what I was looking for from the pictures. This blanket is a looser weave. It has the colors that I was looking for and that is the only reason why it has the rating I gave it.
