After purchasing this blanket for our King size bed I bought two additional (queens) for our other two bedrooms. The blanket is really soft and you cannot feel the wires much at all. Although my husband uses the heat feature from time to time I've never used the blanket as an electric blanket since it is extremely warm without using the heating function.
This blanket is actually thick like a regular blanket and has the added bonus of being an electric blanket. It is really plush and thick and you cannot feel the wires at all. it is warm even without the electric component. I am using it as a regular blanket right now and will turn on the electric heat when the weather gets colder.The Wedgewood color is a beautiful blue. I am very happy to have bought this blanket. Update: The control on one side of the queen size blanket stopped working after I had the blanket for six weeks!!! I will be contacting the manufacturer to see what can be done because as of now only one side of the blanket is working. I had loved the blanket but now--not so much! Second Update: I contacted Shavel customer service and they were very responsive. They will be mailing me a replacement control and I am very happy!!
