Originally purchased a king size blanket for the master bedroom, and loved it so much I purchased the queen size for one of our guest bedrooms. As I washed each blanket before laying out on the beds, I cannot honestly say whether or not they shrank. I do know, however, that each blanket is large enough to tuck at least 8" under the bottom and there is a 9"+ overhang on each side. (This is great, as other full/queen blankets purchased in the past had very little 'extra' to tuck under after washing.)
Love the feel and texture...so soft and does not easily snag as most cotton blankets will.
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.
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!!!
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.
After research ALL of the different electric blankets, I determined this was the better one for me. It was not the cheapest, but all of the other brands did not do what I wanted the blanket to do. One issue with some of the other brands, was for king size, there was about a 10 inch "dead zone" in the middle of the king size blanket, where there were no coils or heat. I did not like that. Another problem was so many bad reviews on the cheaper ones, especially not lasting for one season or sometimes one month without needing replacement. Another major shortfall with ALL of the other brands was that the reviews complained the electric cords from the bottom of the bed to the controls were not long enough which resulted in the controls being pulled of the night stand. This blanket has extra long cords and that has not been a problem with this blanket. This blanket gets plenty warm and I keep it on 3 out of 10 and it warms up fast. You don't need a prewarming function. This blanket is warm within minutes. The wires are very thin and don't show in the blanket and the blanket feels like a normal soft blanket and not a blanket of stiff hard wires, which the cheaper ones do. You get your money's worth here, which is what I wanted.
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.;)
I have never written a review and i buy online all the time. this blanket came directly from the baby jesus. buy it if you get hot. im starting a band called mentopause blanket because of this. the 100% cotton is perfect. so soft. really really soft. the color is AMAZING.
Our light down blanket was too warm on our memory foam mattress. We were sweating at night unless it was really really cold.I bought the king blanket in the grey - it is a very soft pretty color, and quite large, even on our cal king mattress. Which means there is plenty to tuck in. It is cooler than the down, but still warm. I have added a very thin quilt on the coldest nights (my husband doesn't need the extra layer). I don't know how it will be in the summer yet, and I haven't washed it yet. But so far I am very pleased with it.
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
