Bought this blanket for my Husband's recliner. I didn't think he would use it, just set it aside when in his chair. I cover the chair when he isn't in it, now even if he is in it. He loves it. It does NOT shed like the mink one (which only sheds alittle). the coloring is animal-istic. Great buy! would be excellent gifts even for the men in your life!!!
How gorgeous is this throw? Let me count the ways: compared to the coyotes that drift like smoke through my yard, the fur looks incredibly realistic- gray near the root, then cream, then golden tan tipped with black. (The only thing that gives it away as faux is that the hairs are a little shinier at the ends than natural fur; no big deal.) The colors of the fur shift as the blanket drapes and folds, just like a real pelt but without the "yuck!" factor. The fur side is soft, but what is really amazing is the softness of the other side, which is covered in chocolate brown (microsuede?) fabric. I swear it is softer than a baby rabbit's ear. The throw is large enough for two to cuddle comfortably beneath it without fighting for coverage. I had to make a rule that it stays on the couch, otherwise my 10 year would wrap it around himself and wear it everywhere. Definitely my favorite household purchase of 2012.
I was skeptical as to how well it would work and how the coils would feel on my feet. I usually like the bed super warm when i get into it so my feet are immediately lathered in the heat. I set the preheat about 45 minutes before going to bed. That way I have another 15 minutes of the continued high heat to really warm my feet. Then it automatically goes to the maintenance heat number which I keep pretty low and I never have to touch it again. I hardly feel the coils in the blanket and now, after a few weeks in the bed, I really don't feel it at all. I had tried one of the blankets where when touching the blanket on the outside the blanket did not feel warm. This is so much better as you can get the feeling of not having very much heat at the low levels but can also reach much warmer levels if you choose to. I cannot wait to get into bed each night.
Things i didn't think of or found out after buying this blanket.
* How heavy the blanket is but is super warm when under it.
* Extra soft microfiber plush backing is only attached around the edge. can curl at feet.
* Edge of blanket isn't straight (some what noticeable)
I love most things about this blanket. BUT I purchased this because I wanted a longer blanket.
The text on the site says 50x70 and label on the product says 50x60. Not cool. Well I am a bit colder from the missing length.;)
Before I purchased this, I had read reviews about it so I knew pretty much what to expect. I was not disappointed at all....it is gorgeous. And very, very soft!!!! Love it...it's a great accent at the foot of my bed
