So far, this is the very best electric blanket I have ever purchased, and I have purchased quite a few. It is very soft and cozy and heavier than any I have had before. Very warm even when not turned on. I haven't had it that long so do not know how long it will last. But I am very satisfied so far! I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
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.
I adore goose down and will only sleep on it. I bought this blanket because my comforter was too warm. This is a perfect temperature for me in the northeast, in a well-heated building. I also like the blanket because you can tuck it in and it looks very neat on the bed. No, it doesn't loft as much as a goose down comforter, but it has all my musts; box construction, 100% cotton cover (300 thread count; more than most down blankets), 600 fill power (more than most down blankets) and is goose (not duck which is heavier and not as warm) down. The Overstock price was the best around and I did a lot of research.I read the review that said it had an odor when it arrived, I did not notice this.
During the night, I often get hot flashes, so it’s important that I use the best bedding that will enable me to sleep comfortably. This blanket is another great product that is designed to provide comfort each night. I love waking up in the morning feeling so refreshed and relaxed.
We recently replaced the original Vellux blankets that had finally begun to fall apart (after 15 yrs of use). Purchased a cotton Vellux blanket and this one. We love both, but this is the favorite blanket in our home- had to purchase five more! Everyone wanted their own, with a spare to use as a throw. Soft, washes well, and used at home and in the car on our trips.
We first came across these down blankets in Europe last Fall and loved them, so we were delighted to find them on Overstock. They keep us cozy and warm without the usual bulk of down comforters. As mentioned by a couple of other reviewers, there was a subtle and the blanket had a not-so-pleasant smell when we first used it and it made a bit of a crinkly sound, but the odor disappeared after a few weeks and the crinkliness is really minimal . My only objection - and it's a minor one - is the color; I bought the blanket in sage and it's so pale a shade that it adds almost no color to the room.
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.
This is a good product. Unlike others I have had, this blanket does not slip around and disturb the covers on my bed, making it impossible to make the bed in the morning without stripping everything off. Instead, it stays in place. Warms up very nicely, and I love that it automatically shuts off after 10 hours.
We are using this blanket for light year-round warmth and will layer as needed. It's very soft and not "crunchy" sounding at all. Simple, elegant, and a great value. I did a lot of research before this purchase, many other stores charge twice as much for a similar product.
This is a very nice and good quality down blanket. Gave it 4 stars because I had to
return it due to the uneven distribution of the feathers in the baffle boxes. Lot were bunched on the outsides and little in half of the top.
Please note the king size is in fact larger than the queen (the dimensions are listed incorrectly on Overstock). The blanket is a good weight, lighter than a full comforter but still very warm. Because this is is all cotton and down (no polyester), it's considerably better at regulating temperature than many other comforter/blankets.
I bought two of these for glamping in our state park cabins during the winter months this blanket layered inside the Grizzly 2 person sleeping bag kept me snug as a bug. It was also great as a wrap whilst sitting by the fire with a glass of bourbon
This seems to be a fairly good quality. I immediately washed and dried it and it came out a little wrinkled, but okay - I'm sure the wrinkles will smooth out with use. The covering material wasn't as silky as the one I'm replacing (which I also ordered from Overstock about 5 years ago), but I think it will get softer with time. I love down blankets rather than comforters because they can be used year-round. It does have "that crinkly" sound when the blanket is being moved, but I sort of like that sound so I'm fine with that (my first down blanket has the same sound but a little softer now due to being washed many times throughout the years). The color is a true white and the binding is a nice white satin. All in all I believe it's a good purchase.
We have been suffering from night sweats and finally broke down and bought a new blanket that is only cotton. What a difference! The breathability and lightness of the cotton is perfect and you can still wrap yourself with the blanket and feel secure. Highly recommend for stuffy bedrooms and sufferers of night sweats.
I ordered 3 different colors and sizes in this blanket. The ivory is my favorite and looks gorgeous, The charcoal is nice, but nearly black. The camel color is very beige and unappealing visually. All of the blankets are very heavy, but so soft and cozy. Amazingly, they don't make you sweat like other fleece-type blankets--just warm you. No pilling noticed after the last 3 months of use. I really love wrapping myself in these after a long day as the fabric has a soothing feeling. I sleep like a baby when using the queen size Ivory one. The two twins are used when resting on the livingroom sectional. Perfect for a New England winter.
