These were wonderful blankets. Size was too big for my twin bed. Sides dragged on floor. I knew this when I bought them. My tailor told me he could not cut off the side and use the piece to make it longer. The blankets were also extremely hot to sleep under. I am always too warm at night, but these blankets were too hot for me. Return was not a problem. Wish I could have used them. They were beautiful. Searched unsuccessfully for 100% acrylic blankets which are no longer available.
I ordered this blanket after seeing it at a decor shop in Palm Springs and searching for it online. It was half the price at Overstock! It is acrylic so it may not hold up for ever without those nasty little fuzz balls, but right now it looks amazing and I am happy I found it. I bought it in gray to match a gray headboard. This was also the best price I found it online. Other sites had it at least *** more. For the price, it was a terrific, show piece blanket. Love the cable knit look for my midcentury home.
I love the colors of this blanket, and it is soft. The issue i have with this blanket is it sheds, everywhere. The first time i washed it and put it in the dryer, the inside of my dryer looked like the inside of a cotton candy machine. I washed it and tried to dry it again, and the same thing happened. I just dried it again for the third time, and it just keeps putting off a lot of lint. Unfortunately that lint has traveled on to my other clothes, and i never used the blanket. i am sending it back.
I am a stickler for comfort in bed linens and blankets. In my experience, 100% synthetic fleece blankets are almost always too hot and don't breathe. Cotton blankets often fall short as well, getting stiff or thinning out with washing and not providing enough warmth. This is the perfect blanket for the fall and spring, when you are not yet ready for a feather blanket, but you need more than a cotton blanket. I have purchased four Sorrento blankets over the past few years and happy to report they keep their shape and quality through the years. No change to the fabric with washing - they don't get stiff or pill whatsoever. I love that this comes with two colors for more variety! Would be great if additional color ways were offered.
