I got this blanket before a friend used my guest room in Arizona in July. I washed it before making the bed (king sized) and the lint trap had less fuzz than a Polartech blanket that has been washed about 7 times, and no visible lint on the blanket. I think the blanket feels almost silky, although of course I can feel the raised chevrons of the very attractive design. My guest pulled it up about 4:30 a.m. and said it was just enough to take off the slight chill at my town's 4300' elevation. The weave is tighter (but breathable) than other cotton blankets I own, and the bound edges keeps it looking nice and shapely. Packaging and delivery were perfect. I don't hesitate to recommend it.
This stylish blanket is a perfect accessory with our all-white guest bedding. It provides an all-season light layer of warmth without bulk, which is just right for our climate. The solid construction and woven chevron pattern look so much more elegant than the open loop blankets. Not one snag on this blanket!
I bought this to replace an old cotton blanket. The old one was soft and stretchy right from Day One. Unfortunately, it seems that type is no longer available (not unusual). In shopping around, this one was the design closest to what I had. I use it under a heavier blanket during the Winter, leave it on as a top cover (like a bedspread) the rest of the year and when only a light blanket is needed, just as I did with the old one. I'm happy with this new one, but there are a few things to know: Pros -- Nice color (light blue); pretty design (chevron); correct fit (king) but not as overlarge as my old one was; not stretchy; very "crisp" appearance. I washed (in cold) and dried (on low) the blanket before use and it did well. Cons -- As some reviewers have noted, this is not a soft blanket. The chevron design on the top side is very "ridgy" and rough; the underside is much smoother (fabric softener made it no softer or smoother, by the way). The "not stretchy" part can be a "con" if you like an oversized look where the blanket hangs very long on the sides and end. So, this blanket will do for what I want. I like it, I don't love it.
This blanket is a little rough texture due to the chevron design. Also sort of heavy. However, I really like it, it is perfect for what I needed. Very beautiful and made with quality.
